Hi, please tell me what you think about the following components for my new build
Motherboard: Asus P8P67
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k
GPU: Nvidia GTX 560 Ti (Asus Built)
RAM: Corsair XMS3 8GB
HDD: Western Digital Black Caviar 1TB
The system is mainly for gaming
Also, who would you recommend I go with for a PSU?

get a z68 mobo
As for PSU, I personally like Corsair but other good brands are Seasonic, XFX and Antec.
Are you planning on SLI in the future? If not like hellfire said 600W will be enough, if you are you might want a bit more.

I agree, go with a Z68, not P67. One with 16x/8x or 8x/8x pci-e in case you want to ad another video card in the future.

I was looking at 600 pound budget but its adjustable. Do you think its worth it getting an SSD as well? and why an Z68 over a P67? Also, what do you guys think of intels motherboards?
