I want to know if the components I have listed will work together. The Ultra 650W ATX12V / EPS12V is 750W instead. Was not listed. This is a first time build and we need Gaming System Build for Dummies so please keep the terms and abbreviations simple. The Perma- link to my parts list is: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tyro-Girl/saved/2ZFd If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you.

not a good idea to get a GTX 660 Ti. If you are going to spend that $300 on a graphics card go for a GTX 770. Also, you might want to consider using a more expensive 80+ bronze certified power supply. that means its going to run cooler, quieter, and more efficient which decreases your electricity bills. It is not a good idea to cheap out on a PSU, bad ones can blow your computer. I also don't see any RAM

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2bLb3 is my build for 875

That 660ti is insanely over priced...

On new egg you can also search for prebuilt comparable combos really easily intell generally too much money for newts as well IMO... Search 8350 combo... On new egg get the 21.5 inch hang g and divi cables if u don't have and if ur not over clocking u done need the cooler but the 212 evo is best bang for the buck and use arctic 5 grease with it

for a GTX 770 it is not recommended to get a FX-8350, you want something more powerful. The Arctic Silver 5 is showing its age, Noctua Nt-H1 or Arctic MX-4 is better

a GTX 770 will outperform a HD 7870 by so much...

I'm not saying to get a gtx 770 with it, there's no point getting a 300 dollar graphics card with that setup IMO and silver is 7 $... You can also get a 8320 for 130 and a 7870 or 7950 for around 150 seperate the combos msi I believe ... It's honestly a much better deal IMO for beginners

You can build insane starter combos ATM for like 600, that run the majority of games on max settings and will do so for like 2years...

a gaming build with a budget like this should always have an i5. in games it is better to have 4 powerful cores than 8 mediocre cores

to the op...there are a few things you can do the 670 nvidia are 199 with rebates. there also the older 7950/7970 cards that vendors are trying to clear out. the build i posted the mb will let you crossfire or sli if you need to in a few years. also the newer mb will let you drop in a newer cpu if intel refreshes the haswell line. if you can wait 6 weeks for the cpu/mb amd dropping a new cpu on there fm2 plus mb. a few months ago people have been waiting for amd to drop newer chipset for there fx line of cpu. the older 990fx is showing it age vs intel chipset with pci 3.0 speeds and built in sata 6g ports.

I already purchased the Azza Solano 1000R ATX Full Tower but I noticed in the foot notes that the Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Azza Solano 1000R ATX Full Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports. What can you recommend that will be compatible with this tower instead of this Asus motherboard?

I have taken some advice from several responders and updated my parts list. Please see what you think. I'm not sure about what cables I will need at the moment. I just want to take advantage of these sales before midnight tonight. Thank you! http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tyro-Girl/saved/2ZFd

if you don't get the i5-4670k and overclock there is no need to buy a cpu cooler as the cpu comes with a small one. DDR3-1600 RAM would be a bit better than 1333
