You need a psu? Alright the best psu's on the market are the corsair builder series, 600w 80+ certified, But if you want the best build you can get, Do not get a samsung 840 ssd, They are the best, But if this is your first build. Start with a WD Caviar Black 1tb 64 mb cache, It will save you $40? And then you can use the $40 to get the amd fx 8320, which will outperform the i3 any day, so if you havent ordered any parts, I would gladly put together a new build for you, that will outperform this one

i know that 8120 is better but i want to keep tdp as low as possimple...at first i thought that 7790 with 85 tdp is what i want but 650 ti boost is on same price but has better perfomance...i heard that corsair cx has bad capacitors is that true?

What do you even mean? If you want performance get the 8320... Just change your motherboard to a gigabyte-ga-990a
