I'd be tempted to get a cheaper mobo and better CPU or GPU if that's possible, or actually forget that, the PSU is cutting it a bit close, you want some headroom, so I'd say 550-600W, branded CPU Reply to leeb2013 m 0 l Best solution ak47jar3d a b 4 Gaming April 7, 2014 8:00:59 PM PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3nYxT Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3nYxT/by_merchant/ Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3nYxT/benchmarks/ CPU: Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor ($184.98 @ SuperBiiz) Motherboard: ASRock B85 Pro4 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($64.99 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($64.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ NCIX US) Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($229.99 @ NCIX US) Case: Corsair 400R ATX Mid Tower Case ($69.99 @ NCIX US) Power Supply: XFX XTR 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($89.99 @ Newegg) Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer ($14.99 @ Newegg) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32/64-bit) ($108.58 @ NCIX US) Total: $888.49 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
