$1408.58 after $60 MIR if you can cover the additional cost.

$1313.59 after $60 MIR if you can deal with the added MIR and want a better PSU, SSD, and faster RAM.

Get a better PSU and SSD. Go with a Samsung SSD, should be around the same price, and stick to Antec, Corsair, SeaSonic, PC Power and Cooling, or XFX for PSUs.

I thought Silverstone PSUs were of good quality. Not like Cougar, Diablotek and generic.

From the reviews I've read, the PSU he selected is a pretty solid PSU, which I believe is an FSP unit. However, I do believe there are better choices out right now.

Edit: Also, just realized that Silverstone PSU is actually fully modular. With that in mind, there aren't very many options for ~500w, fully modular PSU's in that price range.
