I'm building a gaming pc and so far I've got this as my list: i5 3570k, nvidia geforce gtx 660(msi or evga), 8 gb of ram, 1-2 tb ssd. I dont know a thing about good psu and motherboard brands, what should I get. my price range for all of this is about $1200
Hi - rolli hit the nail on the head!
Act quickly, the PSU at that price could disappear soon.
If you plan to SLI/CF in the future, you might want to get the 750w\version
of that same PSU for $10 additional:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021
