Thats a nice Build you have there, Do you have a Micro center Near of you?, They have really good Deals. They were selling the I5 2500k at 180 last time i checked.
If you Dont have a microcenter Near of you.
A I5 2400+Gtx 560+ A H77 or Z77 Motherboard will Be Excellent for you, Nice Choice on the Psu Btw.
No sorry to say there is no micro center near me, so i will be using newegg, tigerdirect. would you recoment the H77 or the z77, and what brand? Yea the psu i knew i wasnt going to be overclocking or sli or crossfire so i knew i didnt need overkill power but wanted something safe reliable. Thanks for your help and input.
