Would it be worthwhile to go with a modular power supply instead? More about : final check 1300 1400 gaming rig tuganu July 6, 2012 8:17:21 AM Oh trust me. A modular supply Is almost completely worthless in your build. you will end up using most of the cables anyway and to be honest the remaing cables can be managed so they dont affect airflow at all.

Get whichever is in stock or you like the look of. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And I would say get a modular supply. If you ever have to clean the PSU or replace it, you wont have to undo all the cable management to take it out. This Silverstone Strider is fully modular and 80+ Silver. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... TheBigTroll July 6, 2012 1:19:19 PM for the power supply, the xfx xxx 750w is a great choice too. 80+silver, semi,modular, and is made by seasonic for the motherboard. id spend a little more for the gigabyte z77x-ud3h. asrock from what i heard cheaped out on their capacitators. for the memory, id just get the ripjaws x or mushkin blackline as they are sightly cheaper. you wont be seeing the ram anyways Echodawg July 6, 2012 3:24:50 PM Advice taken, thanks guys.
