I did a good amount of "research" and I think ready to buy the components.
BUT before I do, I want a final expert revision, and probably some advice, from you guys.

Also:
1. I do not plan on overclocking right now.
2. The Asus website recommended a 600w+ PSU but PcPP estimated 430w+. Who should I trust? XD

What's wrong with Windows 8? Can't it do the job as well?
