Does this sound ok?

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
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131730

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?

More about does sound
  1. Here are a few decent ones, that should run your build fine, if you want to SLI:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194086
    $100 ENERMAX NAXN 82+ ENM750AWT 750W
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341044
    $170 OCZ ZX Series 850W Fully-Modular 80PLUS (very nice PSU, I have the 1000W version)
  2. Thanks IH8U, does that mean that 750W is enough?

    Does the rest of the parts sound ok?
  3. 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+.
