Re: Configuration check

You are definately on the lower side with the Power Supply. Also, VIP is not a recommended brand of PSU for nice (or really any) builds. It would be advised that you move towards an Corsair or similar before buying nice things. Remember, if a cheap PSU goes down, it'll take your whole system with it. You would be needing atleast 500 Watt Power Supply.
