  1. Just a warning, the Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus series power supply models should be absolutely avoided.
  2. Grab the Core 3 2120, because you cannot overclock the core i3's, so you want to highest clocked one. As for the board, get the z68. Silverstone PSU will be best there, and the Rosewill case. Everything looks good! Have fun! :)
