PSU: Chieftec APS-600SB, 600W, A-135, 14cm, 80+ Bronze

Mainly for gaming. Not planning to overclock.

Is i7 stock cooler good enough and getting other one is a waste?
Will 600W PSU be enough if I upgrade my video card to GTX 780 or even newer one?

Any suggestions what should I change?

Thanks!

It is better to get this cooler to get you lower temps and less noise to be sure that your CPU will last better. Better take a Seasonic 620w quality PSU and it would be enough for the upgrade.

1. Buy only a quality psu :

I think I might overprovision a bit to 620/650w.

2. I would buy the aftermarket cooler, regardless. It will be easier to install and will run much quieter.

3. Make the ram a low profile version

4. 120gb will fill up quickly. See if you can't budget 240gb. EVO is very good.
