Hi guys,

I am slowly piecing together my first build below (prices after rebates):

CPU: $180 - 17 4770k
GPU: $266 - PNY 2gb 770 GTX
Mobo: $80 - Asus Z87-A

Ram: $50-60 - 2x4GB G.Skill ares,sniper, or ripjaw
HDD: 120GB HyperX 3K + WD Red
PSU: ??
Case: ??
CPU Cooler: ??
DIsplay: 24" 1080p IPS

I used the extreme calculator and wattage conservatively was recommended 450W. I don't really plan to overclock, as I don't think I'll need to with what I do, and I also don't know how... Can anyone recommend a PSU in the $40-$75 range?

Another question is will I need a CPU cooler? I did some research here and the Hyper 212 evo and Noctua NH-d14 are recommended a lot... the hyper 212 evo I think I saw for $35.

Corsair CX430, Corsair VS 450, or if Seasonic 500 fits in the budget

CX500 will be good if your getting it at discount. If the price difference is not much go for seasonic, corsair is also fair.
