Hey, this is my first time building a computer. I'm not really sure on what kind of graphics card to get or what type of PSU I need. This is what I have at the moment:

Case:

Mother Board:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Processor:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

RAM:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Hard Drive:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

CD Drive:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

PSU:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Graphics Card:

I think the graphics card and the PSU I chose are adequate, but if there is something else better for a decent price let me know

-Edit-
My budget is $1000-$1400

-Edit-
Will be used for Gaming and Video editing

1. PSU: In terms of wattage, it is more than sufficient. In fact it's more than necessary to be honest. I've never seen Ultra X4 though, so I'll leave that up to others.

2. GTX 560 is good enough for many games these days, just not on ultra/highest. You haven't mentioned what you'll be focusing mostly on. Games? Productivity? Video encoding? etc.

Oh, that's right :sweat:  . I'll mostly be using for games, like battle field 3 and the upcoming guildwars 2, hopefully i could play them on max/ultra settings
