Looking at this from a price standpoint and for what the machine needs. I don't really plan on overclocking or anything simply because I don't know enough about computers to do it and don't want to risk messing anything up

Here's the new power supply I'm looking at

If you don't ever plan to overclock you could make a few changes and save a lot of money. That's if you haven't order the build already.

No I haven't ordered yet. The most obvious one I know is with the i5 k, but in my other thread where I actually put it together people still recommended that for me. I'm a pretty big novice when it comes to computer building.

What are some recommendations that you would make? This is for a gaming only computer

Here are the changes
cpu - i5 3470
mobo - asrock h77m
psu - corsair cx500
no cpu cooler just use the stock cooler
Those changes will save you about $140 with very little loss in performance.
