    Hiper PSUs are not very good. Stay away from them IMO.

    Try replacing the CPU with an E8400 and get a P45 motherboard like the GA-EP45-DS3R or the ASUS P5Q Pro. Novatech offers you the option of buying the RAM and the mobo in OEM boxes, which will end up cheaper overall. Also, check out eBuyer.com for better prices on the other products and replace the PSU with the Corsair 550VX or the Gigabyte Odin GT 550.
