Should be great, I would switch to a 560ti, lot more horsepower, little more cost. Another thing I've been recommending a lot is that instead of buying an integrated wifi adapter, instead get a network bridge. This will give you WIFI with 4 LAN ports, you can plug your PC directly into it as well as 3 other devices for the same cost. One added benefit is that you don't have to wait for the PC to acquire the wifi every time you start up since the bridge is always connected, and bridges have much better range. I love this unit, it is dual band including 5ghz and in the year I have had it, it has never once dropped the wifi connection:

Ok awesome, thanks. I considered the 560ti when i was looking at cards, and i just thought it was a little bit out of my budget. maybe in the future when I get more money I will think about the 560 and the network bridge. thanks for the advise though, I appreciate it

The bridge will cost about the same as the wifi adapter but give you a lot more functionality. For example, if you decide to do work on another machine at your desk, you will automatically be able to plug it in via a Cat-5 LAN cable. The bridge can be located anywhere in your house. Even if a machine has wifi (laptop), if you are doing a clean install the wifi adapter may not hook-up at first, but if you are plugged in via Cat-5 it will be able to search the net for drivers and fix itself.

that PSU not only looks like junk, but it is indeed junk. here's a [url="http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Coolmax-CUL-750B-750-W-Power-Supply-Review/977/1"]review[/url] of the "750W" (lol) model.
get something else, something reliable. you only need a good 400-450W unit, but let it be good! (i recommend seasonic units, or others which are labelled by other companies but are actually seasonic units. people like corsair brand, and most of their good psu's are seasonic makes.)
