Are you locked in and committed to that Zalman power supply? Have you already bought it?

What vendor are you using for your components? Can you provide a link?

You may be able to do better than the Zalman, depending on your vendor and your budget.

I'm just wondering what lead you to that particular power supply, which I believe is made by Enhance.

If you are using Aria in the UK as a source, here is an excellent PSU from their stock:

+1 for going EVGA, not sure of your use of the PC but I`d bump up the watts a bit more, if possible.

Not having at least a dvd drive in a pc is like not having a steering wheel on a car, a good Blu Ray player is under $60

My new LG Blu Ray drive works phenominal, although I really don`t even need it.

I really dont wish to go over 50 but if i have to i will. The EVGA 550W GS seems okay and a little cheaper than the G2 but still costs more money than Zalman, i dont see any problem in using the Zalman but im just curious if its compatible with my case.

EVGA Supernova GS 550W Review

Above is a review of the EVGA 550 GS; pretty good; not as high as the other EVGA, but I'd take it over the Zalman.

But the better EVGA 550 G2 is only 2 pounds more expensive than the EVGA 550 GS---67 versus 65.

Post a current list of your parts if possible.

Any of them, including the Zalman, should be compatible with your case.

The base components of RAM, motherboard, and CPU look fine to me.

When I poke your link, it shows only those 3 components, not the video card, power supply, or case.

You need to buy a CPU cooler.

Don't know how many other components you need or your budget, but it looks OK. I don't know anything about gaming video cards, so can't comment on that.

The K series processors do NOT include a cooler.

The 6600 has a cooler. The 6600K does not.

The 6700 has a cooler. The 6700K does not.

Got it?

The K series boxes are smaller because they do not contain a cooler.
