  1. Yes, it'll be enough. Just curious why you're picking a cpu with unlocked multiplier and motherboard with B75 chipset.

    Well i was told by a friend that this was fine but thank you so much for helping me out
  3. It is fine, but you won't be able to overclock the cpu. If you weren't planning on doing that, get a cheaper CPU like the i5 3470.

    so if i want to overclock would i have to buy a better Psu and i was wondering if there would be enough power if i added an Akasa AK-CC4009EP01 Venom Pico Performance Multi-Platform CPU Cooler
  5. No, you don't have to get a better PSU for that cooler and probably not for a little overclocking either.

    Don't go for that cooler. Go for something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.
