Ok, so here is my build so far.

I just have one question.

Is there a power supply similar to this one, with a blue LED fan?

When I say similar, I mean highly rated, sturdy, and lasts long for around the same price. :pt1cable: 



Since everything else in my case is black and blue with LEDs, it will go with the scheme.

Thank you in advance to all who respond. :D

Your build looke good and while you didn't mention anything about a budget you can save a few bucks here and there with other stores. I know paripicker is supposed to get the the lowest available price but sometimes you may end up picking the wrong store.
The 3570K IS $5 cheaper at Newegg.
The motherboard choice can be better with an Asus board.

It's $129.99 after rebate so this choice saves you another $5.

The power supply is an item that can be hit or miss and you really should get a top quality brand name. Like Seasonic , Antec , XFX , Silverstone or Corsair.

Your other choices are good and you should have a great build for yourself.

Hehehe, thank you. :D  I already got the CPU and Mobo, though. At Micro Center, they are doing a special. If you buy a matching motherboard and CPU, they give you $50 off. I got the CPU for 189.99 and the Mobo for 84.99!

And thank you for the tip about the PSU. I want a good strong, long lasting power supply. :p

Corsair GS series has the pretty lights, rather expensive for what they are though

If that's the case then you may want to consider the Seasonic since they make the best and they actually make the insides of the psu for a few of the pther brands , like xfx and Corsair to name a few. I have the 1250w Seasonic Gold and don't anticipate getting another for many years down the road.

Will that build require a 750W PSU? Is that too much? Just the right amount? I know I need more than minimum, I might OC, but don't know yet.

There is no rule that syayes that you have to buy a certian size psu , you can get whatever size you want. You will only use what you need and if in the event you make changes like overclocking , adding lights , another video card , more fans or all the above , with getting a larger psu then what you need then you don't have to worry about getting another one because you changed your mind. If you can aford it then why not. I have a 1250w Seasonic and do I need one that big , maybe not but if I add any video cards or anything then I know the psu is set.
