  1. Where are you purchasing from? Also, if this build is for gaming only, the 3370k is over kill. It would be better to drop down to a 3750k and pickup a HD 7950
  2. Best answer
    What will you be using this build for? Remember that an i7 is overkill for gaming, and the performance increase from a i5-3570K isn't worth the price if that's your most intensive use case.

    If you don't plan on changing the GPU, a 500-600W PSU is perfectly adequate. 700W-800W is recommended if you do plan on a top tier card. Go for Corsair, OCZ, SeaSonic or Thermaltake.

    HDD: Go for a Seagate Barracuda. Cheapest on the market and reputable brand.
    Seconding the 3770K -> 3570K and 7850 -> 7950. Much more bang for your buck with that configuration. (Though remember to get one with a non-reference cooler like a MSI Twin Frozr or Gigabyte Windforce if you plan on overclocking Radeon cards in general. Their reference blowers are noisy and don't cool very well.)
  3. 7870 LE/myst/xt for gpu, samsung 840 pro, corsair, antec, seasonic PSU. theres a 750W cosair for like 60 bucks on newegg I think, its 30 off. Might consider 3570k if you need to be in budget. cooler master Hyper evo cpu cooler for 30.

    i5-3570K
    hyper evo
    7870LE
    8gb corsair 1600
    Asrock extreme4 z77
    128gb samsung 840 Pro
    Corsair PSU

    roughly 890 on partpicker
  4. As for the PSU i'd go for Corsair CX600M :

    or if you don't have microcenter around :

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139048&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    you can run 7850 with 430w so if you decided to CFX in the future this will suffice you

    AS for build suggestions : I completely agree with the i5-3570k idea and a higher end GPU , that's the best and most beneficial choice .

    BEST LUCK
