I already own a monitor, keyboard, mic, mouse, and am running at 16:10 resolution.
I am really unaware of what I motherboard and power supply I should get. Please recommend me one.
Obviously, cheaper is better. I do not plan on crossfire/SLI but I will want to stream 480-720p resolution at high quality on SC2. $700-800 is within my budget



Thanks guys, also if there is anything regarding what I have already chosen (like if there is a cheaper or better version) then feel free to tell me!

For 4 cents more, get the NZXT Tempest 210. It has better cable management and airflow.

CX600 is a pretty fair priced PSU ; it could easily power this machine.
CX430 V2 could probably pull it off as well, but I wouldn't recommend it.

A lot of people will bash Rosewill PSU's, but they do produce a few quality ones.
That appears to be one of them, although it is sort of pricey.
