RE: How does this build look?
looks like a solid budget gaming build to me. you may have to buy a seperate adaper for your video card. i think that psu only comes with one 6 pin but you may want to check. otherwise very solid. that case only has usb 2.0 front panel connectors and if you need usb 3.0 on the front the U3 is only 10 bucks more.

What adapter do I need?

the power supply has only one six pin PCI connector, so a splitter/adapter is needed because the graphics card has an 8 pin and a six pin connector and they are both needed.

I think I'd look for a better power supply. The Atec 450 has 18 amps ( 216 watts) on the rail with the PCI connector, and the graphics card max draw is 201 watts. I think I'd want more headroom on the PSU.

The EVGA G2 650W has had the price bouncing around between $69 and $89. It is made by superflower, and has been getting great reviews. 80 plus gold rating, super quiet.

the 550W is a few dollars less and is also getting excellent reviews.

The good news is these PSU have more than one PCI connector so no adapter is needed.

Caveat: I have no firsthand knowledge of these.

Back to for the antec 450, I think you'll need an adapter like this one

and this assumes the graphics card has an 8 pin to six pin adapter. Most include one of these.

good luck,

RE: How does this build look?
depending on the model of that card it could be a dual 6 pin or a 6/8 pin config. usually they will ship with 2 cables instead of a single 6 to dual splitter. look at the spec sheet on bh photo of that model.

as for the psu, the minimum recommended is a 500w supply but that antec vp was capable of 550w at 22amps on the 12v rails on the overload tests. the 970 max tdp is 145w(12A) not 201(that must be system draw) unless it is superclocked to the max. so lets be safe as dan suggested, give you a little headroom and keep your warranty intact, look at the corsair builder series 600w that matb is recommending on the worldwide edition budget article. its only 10 bucks more and comes with 2 pcie connectors so you wouldnt need an additional cable.

the 550w supernova series that dan mentioned is also a good supply as tested on the bench. a few minor voltage regulation issues but nothing to worry about. the g2 is a very solid unit.

if you decide to go with a 500w or above unit other than the ones recommended here then post a link so we can check out the specs and make sure it is a quality built unit.

good luck

RE: How does this build look?
201w came from here: http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.asp...P4-3975-KR

the column heading is max power draw, and the card has 8 + 6 pin power connectors.
