PC upgrade advice please

Hi Guys,

Been a while since I built my PC so ive fallen a little behind with the current technologies so ive been doing a fair bit of reading on here over the last few days to try and catch up. I am planning to build a new PC for gaming and HD 1080p video streaming, internet use etc on a budget.

This is what I have come up with so far.


ASUS P7P55D iP55 Socket LGA 1156 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard


Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz Socket LGA1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor


Microsoft Windows 7 Professional - Licence and media - 1 PC - OEM - DVD - 64-bit - English


G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 Ripjaw Memory Kit CL7(7-8-7-24) 1.65V


Sapphire HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card


Seagate 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache - OEM

Optional upgrade as I currently have a Lian li PC 60 case.

Antec 300 Three Hundred Case

So how does it look anything you would recomend over what I have chosen?

I currently have a Corsair HX520w PSU do you think this will be able to handle this build if not could you give me some ideas for a replacement please. I will be buying the above items from www.ebuyer.com. I am planning to over clock eventually so this might affect the choice of PSU.
