  1. I don't see a power supply?
  2. oops!...any recommendations?
    I am considering
    Rosewill RG630-S12 630-Watt Green Series 80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail @ $70.00
  3. If you're getting the i5-2500k, then you should get a motherboard that will support overclocking. the H67 chipsent doesn't. Either go for a board with P67 or Z68 chipset. Or you can save a couple bucks and not get a processor that has an unlocked multiplier.
  4. Don't get that motherboard if you're going to make use of that 2500k - you cannot overclock with it. Get a Z77 motherboard - if you're looking for something affordable, something like an MSI Z77A-G43, or ASRock Z77 Pro3, or Biostar TZ77B would be better than that H61.

    The only Rosewill PSU I can recommend is the Hive series (which are good, at best). This Seasonic S12II 620 would be much, much better - more efficient, quiet, more reliable, better support, etc.
  5. rosewill green is fine, but 630W is overkill for a single card, especially a 7850.

    also, no point getting a K-class processor with an H67...it won't overclock.

    either step back to the base 2500, or switch to a P67/z68 board
  6. Oops again...I meant

    Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52400

    not the K chip BTW knock another $30 down off of the quote
  7. CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
    $69.99 and a !0 rebate makes the final price $59.99

    This is the same price as the Rosewill and is a much better brand name and comes with a power cord. Green series power supplies do not come with a power cord
