I'd go 500-550W for a 770, and you need a Z87 mobo to overclock.

I'd suggest a bigger HDD too

Thnx for the answers!

What its clear is that I need a new mobo, but why a bigger hdd D:? There is a case + psu + mobo + dvd the asrock M8. Quite more expensive but i can buy the videocard latter. If im going that case, should I chage de cpu and video card cuz i really want to OC them.

120 GB is kinda tiny fr modern applications. a Blue Ray runs around 4 GB in size, Modern games can be 12-50 GB.

D';oh!

Missed the second drive when I was looking over your parts list! yeah, 120 GB SSD + 2 TB HDD is fine.

(my own HTPC is a 'salvage' PC with a 120GB HDD in it, which was plenty in 2006 when it was made)
