Firstly I am not sure how large of a power supply I am going to need to power this system, so any help with that would be appreciated. Also how compatible are all the pieces of this build. And are there parts that I use to make this build better for less.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, Thanks for your help.

  1. If you arent gonna OC in the NEAR future, then save the CPU cooler for later, when you actually want to OC. PSU should be around 600W :) And from brands with good reputation for building PSUs. Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic, brands like those. :) Other than that, everything looks fine.
  2. if you have a micro center near you you can get the i5-3540 for 150.00
    and the i5-3570 for 190.00
    the cpu cooler keep it the intel stock ones suck...
