Additional Comments:

This is my first build so I'm just wanting to make sure I haven't overlooked anything obvious here. I mainly want the computer to be fast for Photoshop, video editing and maybe a few games.

I won't be purchasing it right now, but I'm hoping maybe to catch some deals over the next few weeks.

    You can save a little on the PSU since that rig will run fine on a 500watt PSU and the 520watt version of the NEO ECO is $10 less.

    ok, cool! I have done some combo deals on newegg to bring the price down even more. One of them included this PSU:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153113

    will it be sufficient for the i5 and 5770?
  3. That is not a good PSU and should be avoided.
  4. OK, I've made a couple revisions. I've decided on this power supply:

    Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371016

    and I'm thinking of getting this GPU instead of the 5770:

    ZOTAC ZT-40408-10P GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500202

    Will that PSU be enough to power the GTX 460?
  5. Yes and it is a quality PSU! The GTX460 1GB is a nice jump from the HD5770.
