Hi all, I'm putting my first computer together and want to make sure there are no problems with any of the parts before I spend the money! I just need the stuff mentioned below.

The computer is for gaming and I want to eventually overclock the CPU and run SLI. I don't have a budget really, but roughly the prices I have now is good.

I have read a bunch on this forum first, so hope I am not completely hopeless!

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB

MB ASUS P8Z68-V PRO

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K

Graphics: I have read about a new GTX 560 TI with 448 core coming out soon, want to get that.

PSU: I have found some, but don't know what is good. I need 850W?

Thanks IH8U, does that mean that 750W is enough?

Does the rest of the parts sound ok?

Enermax, like Antec usually under rates their voltages (by usually 50-80W). However the OCZ would still be the better of the two. (and it's gold cert isn't a load of crap like TT, CM, and Raidcrap)


A suggestion for a better HSF (if you want to OC) on a budget would be the CM Hyper 212+.
