    It looks good! See you in like a week (or 2 maximum) when your PSU fried everything! (god I hope Phanein sees this)

    I don't really know the quality of Hitachi HDDs but most people go with Western Digitals or Seagates nowadays.

    I found a cheap PSU from a reputable maker
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc..._-na-_-na-_-na

    HOw is this? I checked the tier list and it is at tier 3.

    Which is classified as still solid PSU.

    Tier 3 is a good enough brand for most people and normal gamers.

    Your motherboard is a cheap ASRock. If possible, avoid it (the higher end ASRock boards are quite better). There are other good brands in your price range.

    That's it I think. Don't forget to upgrade to Win8.1
