I'd look out for that PSU. It is NOT safe and VERY low quality. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story3&reid=71 IT failed when they pulled 25A from the 12v rail, which this PC WILL pull with that GPU.

It is not a topower. It is clearly a Powork based on the model and the small amount of the logo visible on the label. OP just said it was a Topower because this unit was not on PCPP.

Good build for the price, but as tiny voices said, you really should replace that power supply.

Also, how likely is it that the PSU ( should it go out) destroy other compenents?

More likely than any name brand PSU IMO. According to the product page on newegg it has these protections:

"Output over voltage protection, Short circuit protection on all outputs"

VS a 600W EVGA PSU which is 10-15 dollars more expensive:

"Over volt/over current protections guard your system from any power disasters. This power supply has passed an array of safety approvals, including UL, CUL, FCC, TUV, and CE."

Here is a short list of good quality cheap PSUs to consider for an upgrade solely for the sake of safety of your PC and those in your household: EVGA 600B Thermaltake Smart series 600W or above SeaSonic SS-600ET Silverstone ST60F-ESB

All of the above can be had between 50-65 dollars right now

Great build for the price, but without a PSU upgrade it will have issues and possibly catastrophic failure.

Check the 2nd ram set in. The picture looks like it might not be seated all the way. Sorry OCD is kicking in
