    You have to be careful with Corsair PSUs. Some of their models are made by good comans, others are not. I just prefer to stay away from them all together. Especially since there are MUCH better options available.

    A couple of good articles on PSUs. Don't skimp on the PSU.

    This one lists who the PSUs are made by. Seasonic and SuperFlower are about the best out there.

    So i'm still unsure about my PSU. By that list my PSU is a tier 3. Can i use it or no? If not can someone help me fit one into my budget.

    I wouldn't even start a build without a quality PSU. If you need to hold off and save for another few weeks, I suggest you do so.

    This build is being done out of my tax return so i kinda need to do it now. I take it the EVGA 600B is not good enough for the build. What if i changed to a I5 4460 to save money?

    A 600 is probably enough for that build, but there won't be much room for additional upgrades.....

    Ok thank you. I would only need to use it for about 2 months tops maybe less. Then i could upgrade to a tier 2 PSU. I just wanted to know if i could use it until then. I don't plan to make any other upgrades anytime soon.

    Ok after doing some research on my PSU i made a change to my build. I have decided to hold off on the SSD for now for a better PSU. How does this build look Intel Core i5-4690K, EVGA GeForce GTX 960, Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) - System Build - PCPartPicker.
