Help first pc build

Hi everyone good day,

A first time pc builder here, and here's my supposed build:

cpu - Intel Core i3 530 2.93Ghz 4mb LGA 1156
memory - 1 Kingston 2gb PC3-10600 DDR3 1333
hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 250gb 7200rpm SATA
Video card - MSI ATI Radeon HD5770 1GB DDR5 128 bit
Motherboard - Asus p7h55m-pro intel h55 LGA1156/DDR3/GBlan

I plan to use the system for web browsing, video watching, graphic rendering and gaming.

If all of these could go together, what power supply should i get?

and another favor, can you recommend reliable cddvd rom drives for me?

Thanks a lot in advance.

    Any good 450 - 500 watt PSU will work.

    Corsair 450VX (33 amp 12 volt rail)

    Antec 500 watt BASIQ

    My favorite PSU for a midlevel build is the Corsair 550VX (41 amp 12 volt rail)

    It's a bit of overkill in your case, but it will power any CPU and video card with a single GPU.

    If you think that you will CrossFire, get a good (Seasonic, Corsair, Antec) 650 watt PSU.

    My first choice for an otical drive is Samsung. Second choice is LG.
  2. I'm considering of buying the Corsair 550vx, thanks for the reply sir ^___^
