Hey so this is the first computer I'm ever building, and I'm trying to figure out a few things. Firstly I want to check to make sure everything I'm getting is worth the money. I don't know many specs, so its hard for me to tell whats a good item, and whats not.

Secondly, I'm having trouble finding how many watts each component takes. I know my listed GFX Card needs 500, but I can't find any info on anything else.

RAM: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Motherboard: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Processor: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...


Do these items look ok? I know the processor and mobo fit together, as well as the RAM fitting in the mobo, but will everything else fit?

And how much wattage for the PSU should I get?

Thanks,
Bmorgy

550w will run your specs with no issues.

Both units made by the best SEASONIC.

That card will probably only pull 270w under a heavy load.
