^ If gaming and also will be overclocking, why not the i5 760?? IMO you can save good money and wont affect the gaming performance...

Also for GTX 460 SLI, IMO you wont need 850W...

OS - If you are a regular home user, the Home Premium would suffice...

CPU Cooler - CM Hyper 212+/ Scythe Mugen 2 Rev B
