Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 $89.99 (combo deal with i5 3570k) Micro Center

Still trying to figure out what to do with my GPU, I have a PNY GTX 550ti, and can get another one and SLI for $89.99 (Best Buy /w $40 in RZ credit)

I have a 640Gb WD Caviar Black I am going to use, and upgrade to an SSD later.

Also I already have an unused license of Windows 7 Pro I bought for $64.95

Total $821.91 - $367 Amazon credit from trading in textbooks

= $454.91 out of pocket cash

Anything you would change? Is the PSU Overkill?

Sell the 550ti and get a Radeon 7850. Drop the PSU down to 500W.
