  1. HI there im get almost the same rig then you but you dont need 750W PSU take some 600W. And if its just for gaming i5 3570K will do same work.
  2. Regarding your memory choice,you may be better off going with an 8 GB or 16 GB kit since the motherboard is designed for dual channel memory. This means either installing memory in 2 or 4 slots for best memory performance. If you install memory in 3 slots (of the four) I'm not sure if you will sacrifice memory operation but I'm thinking it will. Maybe someone with more expertise can clarify what I'm thinking (or prove me wrong in my assumption).

    As for the sizeof the PSU, I agree with teeshq, you could probably do with a 600 or 650 watt PSU, depending on how hard you will be overclocking (if at all).

    I also agree with teeshq regarding your choice of cpu, the 3770k is not necessary for a good gaming rig, unless you are also going to be doing other high-end graphics applications, such as video editting.

    Also, if you are planning on overclocking, you may want to consider an aftermarket HSF to replace the stock one that comes with the cpu, just make sure that it will fit with the RAM you will be using.

    Additionally, you may want to consider getting a SSD to use as your boot drive and a smaller HDD (Like a 1 or 2 TB WD Black) for your games/application.

    Last note, don't forget that you will need a mouse, keyboard and operating system.

    Best of luck!
  3. this works better and isnt overkill

    im assuming you are going to do SLI in the future if you are using 750w psus
