For a while now I've been thinking and planning a new build from the ground up as I currently only run on an aging laptop. At first I was aiming for an Intel i5-2500k, but as the new Ivy bridge is now out, I was thinking going for a i5-3570k with an Asus P8Z77 V Pro mobo.
I'm planning on doing mild overclocking, going to buy probably the Corsair 512 evo cooler, 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 RAM. But where I need the most help is in choosing the GPU, and to some degree the PSU.
Going Ivy and Z77 I was aiming for a PCI 3.0 GPU (might as well use the tech I'm paying for right?), but being on a budget, I was hoping to the best bang for my buck. Also, while I don't want to put too much money on the PSU, I don't want to get a cheap one that will blow in my face or not be powerful enough. What wattage should I aim for?
All feedback and suggestions will be appreciated, I am learning after all!
