Well it's good except the graphics card is a bit weak, 8GB RAM is probably excessive, and Coolmax is terrible. The main thing is that you shouldn't have bought a Coolmax power supply.

CoolMax CTG series are good, but other than that series they are quite bad. It looks like everything is compatible, although liquid cooling is a waste of money at this budget in my opinion.

hmm, well if i'm not playing any serious games for a few months, the graphics card can always be upgraded right?
Well, at least the PSU has a 5yr warranty, also we buy cheap psu's at work all the time, and some people there repair them, so in a pinch i can get a refurbed 400w to borrow till i get any issues resolved.
thanks for the advice!

Yeah, the Corsair H60 isn't really worth the money. Just get the A70. It's almost as good.
