Close to my computer. First off, get a power supply with a little more balls. That one is prettty low. This one would work well in your system:

Second, if building a new system, i`d recommend haswell. May as well build a system that at least has the options for upgrades in the future. If you build an IB system, you`re maxed right from the start.
