PSU's that come with cases are usually garbage, so I would buy another PSU (make sure it's rated 80+ bronze at least). And instead of getting 1 4gb stick of RAM get 2 2gb instead, it will work much better for you. What are you going to do with this computer, chances are an i7 is more than you will need so you could shave some money off of your cpu and put it toward a decent power supply.

Asus may or may not have release an updated BIOS to fully/properly support Ivy 1155 chips on older H61/H67/P67 mobos but why take a needless gamble? Hit a H77/B75 and definitely no to skimping on the PSU - there is every chance when a bad one fails, it takes out more than just itself so...

Anyway for us to better help u

Go with an i5 and save some money for a 60gb SSD. This will give your computer the most noticeable speed. You can pick up a OCZ Agility 3 pretty cheap.
