Cooler Master HAF-912
Gigabyte GTX770

(Would appreciate any advice!!)

Thanks in advance...

First of all , replace that 1 x 8gb stick with 2 x 4gb sticks as it's easier on the memory controller and will work more efficiently.

As for the PSU, anything 80+ Bronze or over from Corsair (apart from the CX series), XFX, Antec or Seasonic will be great. I'd go for this one:

Get a 750w PSU in that case. You could go to 850w but that would be borderline overkill.

Then a 750w bronze or better PSU from the manufacturers already listed by previous posters is what you are looking at.

+1 on the 4 x 2 ram as well.


I have the same mobo + cpu, you are going to like it. =)

Then go for this one:

Same price as 650w after rebates on Newegg anyway!

If you want a modular PSU, here's one:

A little more expensive, though. With only 750w I wouldn't bother with modular, anyway.

Cooler Master HAF-912 < Case doesn't support USB 3.0 , but your board does , so you'll nee a different case.
Front Ports
2 x USB 2.0, 1 x Audio, 1 x Speakers

300R, 400R, 500R are good cases, Phantom 410, Tempest 410, Antec 300/900, Fractal Design Define R4, Zalman Z11 (Plus). Usually hard to find low priced cases that can fit the H100i.
