Hi, im planning on building a gaming pc in the near future and ive put together a set of parts. Im wondering if have to worry about any obscure plugs or any thing that may impede this design.Im also open to recommendations for new parts and id like some help choosing a power supply- is mine overkill or should i get a bigger one?
CPU Intel Core i5-2320 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor $189.00 $189.00 @ Covetech

Motherboard ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard $149.95 $149.95 @ Mwave Australia

Memory GeIL Enhance CORSA 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $52.00 $52.00 @ Mwave Australia

Video Card Zotac GeForce GTX 560 1GB Video Card $179.00 $179.00 @ Scorptec

Case Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case $49.00 $49.00 @ PCCaseGear

Power Supply Antec 620W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply $115.00 $115.00 @ Mwave Australia

Ill buy it anywhere In the next 6 months
My bugdet: <$700
It will mainly be used for gaming and web surfing
I dont need a monitor, keyboard, mouse or speakers. This is for the tower
Couldnt care less where i get the parts so long as they are reliable and attainable
I live in Australia so if recommending make sure i can get the parts
If you recommend a different CPU then id prefer a intel
Im not going to overclock
I MAY SLI/Crossfire but id probably stick to a a replacement
I have a HD monitor

you didn't say about overclocking. if you do not plan on it:
ASRock H77-PRO4-MVP $99.00
that will put you @ $683
if you are going to SLI then that 620 is just about right. if you change your mind and won't you can step down to the 520 but that looks like only a $15 difference anyway.
if you use the H77 board you could get a
ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II Overclocked $229.00
that will put you back to $733

you got a good build for great prices, only thing to do to get one component better would be to trim away at others. no sense in that, eh?
