What's your budget? I think good 600/750W PSU will be great.

cant go much more than 350 without the gpu

first of all, get either a z77 motherboard and overclock with that cpu, or buy a non overclockable cpu with that motheboard, and second get 8gb ram for sure. and get the windowed version of the shinobi cause it has a few more features. as for the psu, i have an xfx pro xxx 750w and its awesome! they go on sale regularly for 100 bucks. you keep saying crossfire so i assume you want amd cards? i would suggest that you save up longer and get one good card then buy 2 worse ones, you will run into alot of problems with crossfire in some games. but if your set on it then i would get 2 7870s or 2 gtx 660s, out of those two the sli 660s would be better then the crossfire amd cards, i think you will run into less problems with sli. and if you take my advice and get one good card, then i would get a gtx 670 or 7970
