  1. It looks great :)

    If possible, see if you can find an 80 Plus rated power supply.
  2. Yeah I'd switch out that PSU - Thermaltake isn't a brand that is known for their power supplies. But I'm also not sure why you'd pair an i5-3450 with a Z77 motherboard - you should be going with the 3570K instead.
  3. Not sure where you are, but I would recommend this PSU instead:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182073

    They are about the same price (here at least), and it will serve you much better.

    This ^ review loved the Capstone series, so it's a good choice.

    Doesn't look like you have much of a choice there.

    For motherboard I can definitely recommend this: http://tolvutek.is/vara/gigabyte-s1155-z77-d3h-modurbord

    And for CPU I can definitely recommend this: http://tolvutek.is/vara/intel-core-i5-3570k-quad-core-orgjorvi-retail

    Hm..for the motherboard here http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4140#sp doesnt say it supports SLI.

    For the CPU as I see you suggested the one that I can overclock, but i dont know will I need any overclock..and it costs 65$ more..
