Hello guys,

This will be my first build.

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/javierr89/saved/3XTp99

Let me know if the build works, as it is my first time posting here.

I have a 300W power supply. Will it be ok to use while my 500W gets here?l(it should be here within 3 days)

I will not be gaming, I will not be performing a lot of heavy duty activities, mostly to install windows, and make sure everything works.

Also what do you think about the build. I get all of the above at microcenter for $630, I think it was a pretty good deal.

Nope, 300W won't be nearly enough for that build.

You could prolly do that (instal windows), just don't put it under any strain & don't quote me if it blows up...

NO! Terrible idea. Wait for the 500w otherwise you might end up corrupting windows due to a shutdown in the middle of the installation process. Don't risk it, just wait.

Get a different motherboard, preferably Asus AsRock, or Gigabyte. It won't handle 125w processors very well.
