your build sounds good though i would go with a slightly more powerful graphics card If your budget allows i would get something in the radeon 7770 range or gtx 650 ti for nvidia. those cards will allow for 1080P gaming with meduim settings in most games.

yes a very important one. Your psu is the heart of your system. you never want to be over taxing it or it will make for an unstable system and likely shorten its life. that said you should be ok if you do not plan to overclock or run sli...if either of those are in the cards you need to get something in the 7-800 range at least.

Does the memory type of the video card have to match the motherboard's?
