Hi again... I'm wondering if everything is compatible so far before I buy the parts... But I'm still undecided on the PSU because I'm not exactly sure how much to get.
Motherboard : Asus M5A97 LE 92.0
Graphic Card : AMD Radeon 7870 HIS IceQ
CPU : AMD - Fx6300
Case : Corsair Graphite Series 230T
Hard Drive : Corsair Force GTCSSD-F120GBGT
RAM : Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB
Power Supply : ???
Also wondering if I'm missing anything that's necessary / would be nice to include to a gaming computer! Thanks!

You won't need more than 600W bronze PSU

PS : do you plan to use only 120GB as a storage? And you might need optical drive for CD/DVD

Umm.. Yeah.. I assumed that'd be enough... Isn't it? Haha.
And alright. I'll take a look at the PSU and drive! Thanks!!

120GB is enough if we were in 2005. COD Ghosts and BF4 together need more than 50GB of space, plus you'll put other programs on the SSD and the OS is there which needs 20GB. Also don't expect full 120GB available, It'd be around 110GB I guess.

buy HDD 500GB where you'll store movies, programs, games etc. and SSD 120GB where the OS will be (and some important programs like Photoshop or important game)
