+1 for the 3570k
+1 for SSD if you can afford it (Depending on budget limits, which aren't listed)

save yourself a bit of money. i would also push for the 3570k. there is absolutely no point in a 650w psu unless you overclock cpu and gpu heavily. if you do not do any overclocking at all, the seasonic m12ii 520w should be fine enough


I never noticed the combo deals, also all these hdd are bare drives im assumimg motherboards come with the cables?

yes, motherboard comes with the sata cables, your psu provides the sata connectors, the 2 cords you need for a hdd

Will it also come with the cables for the DVD burner that you recommended?

mobos come with at least the same # of sata cords(4-6) it has on the board usually. the psu's come with several sata power connectors, usually on one cord, so you can probably connect the hdd on the same cord you connected the dvd drive on

Wanted to say thanks again did the combos and upped it to the 3570k. And you said get a smaller psu? The 670 said a minimum of 500w and I wanted to clear that by a bit you still think I should go lower? If so to what?

the manufacturers sites overstate the power requirements. the only true way to power requirements is through load testing. anandtech has the 670 on metro 2033 at 317w on load, which leaves over 200w for the rest of the computer and overclocking, on load, which should be enough. though if your interested in overclocking the 670 and your cpu sometime in the future, buffer yourself to ~600w

a good quality 600w psu will be sitting around 80-90$ at stock price uncomboed. your choice of psu is fine if you dont mind having that excess power in there or plan on adding other parts. though if anytime you ever want to overclock your cpu in the future, remember to buy a dedicated aftermarket cpu cooler
