  1. Don't get the old Corsair 650TX, as there is a newer better version available now.
    Some suggestions for PSUs to save money:
    XFX Pro 650W Core Edition 80Plus Bronze $90 ($20 rebate, $6 shipping)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014

    Antec High Current Gamer HCG-620 80Plus Bronze $70 ($20 rebate)

    However, as your motherboard doesn't support more than one graphics card you don't need as much as 650W.
    OCZ ZS Series 550W 80Plus Bronze $80 ($20 rebate)

    XFX Pro 550W Core Edition 80Plus Bronze $70 ($20 rebate, $6 shipping)

    Have you seen this combo?
    Intel i3-2100 & Asus P8H67-M LX $199

    I don't think it saves you any money (especially if you get a similar combo with your current mobo) but I thought it would be nice to get an Asus motherboard, with UEFI, etc.
  2. Yeah. Also get P67 or Z68 mobo. Will be more future proof
  3. Processor : Intel Core i3 2120 - $135
    MoBo : Any Intel H67 based would do
    RAM : G.skill or Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz
    GPU : No Idea
    Case : Any CoolerMaster Elite
    PSU : 500-550W
    HDD : SeaGate Barracuda or Samsung Spinpoint
    CPU Cooler : Stock
    Case fan : CoolerMaster XtraFlo 120mm
  4. Check outt the build in my siggy. For $550, it should fit you. Change the i3 2100 to the i5 2400. That should add about $70. Then switch the 550 Ti/560 GTX for the 6950 2GB.
    Adds about $100.

    So you should total around $720
