What i forgot to add was the Ram,i already have 4 GB of ram on my current PC what i will transfer to my new one,the same goes for the DVD drive.

Now about the PSU,i decided to change it to this one

That's a pretty cheap price for a 650 watt PSU. That brand is unknown in the USA. I'm guessing it's a generic brand of average quality.

I don't know that you need 650 watts.

I'd rather see you stick with a known high quality brand like Seasonic or Corsair, quite possibly with a lower watt rating, for maybe 60 or 70 euros.

Good choice.

Here is a review of its slightly bigger brother, the TX 750.

I can't really vouch for your parts list other than to say that the processor, PSU, motherboard, and hard drive appear compatible. I don't know about your RAM. I assume that is a full ATX case, not a micro ATX case. You will need DDR 3 ram of 1.5 volts. Sandy Bridge uses dual channel RAM, so go with either 4 GB or 8 GB, rather than 6.

I know nothing about your case. If I were you, I would try to find a review of it or find someone who has that case to get first hand info. It may be flimsy, noisy, etc. I don't know.

Good luck.

I can't see any reason it wouldn't work. And I like that PSU much better.

Here is a US link to your case. Read the reviews and decide.
