  1. you cant oc on a h series motherboard you need a z series, second wait untill the silverstone rz01 raven comes out if you want a small case and for a power supply i would recoment somthing in the 450w range
  2. I'd go 500-550W for a 770, and you need a Z87 mobo to overclock.

    I'd suggest a bigger HDD too
  3. but to get a case the size of a consome he needs one of hte new ones coming with a riser card and those only take sfx power suplies and the largest sfx one i know of is 450w
  4. 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.
  5. 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)
