i'm putting my first computer together. i'll be using mostly for watching movies and gaming. this is what i have so far.

ocz psu 600w [...] 1681734101

LG dvd burner [...] 6827136240

computer case corsair300r [...] air%20300r

cpu i5 3570k [...] i5%203570k

mobo asrock extreme 4 [...] 6813157293

harddrive 350gb 7200 from my old computer

I also just ordered g skill ram 4x4 gb 2133 for 100 bucks. i've been told that this is just overkill for gaming so i'm thinking to refuse package on delivery and order 2x4 g skill 1600. for about 60 bucks cheaper. what do you think?
or should i just keep it because its a good deal? [...] 6820231501

i'm also considering ssd 128gb. any recommendation. i only have 150 dollars.

what gpu should i get. budget vs performance. i cant afford more than 300 max.

any suggestion or ideas would be appreciated. thank you
