  1. If I were you, I'd switch up a couple things. your PSU since it is a bit overkill, even if you get a second 7770 later. here's one that's on a great sale right now...

    Next, I would get an unlocked CPU, you might as well if you're going to get a Z77 mobo.

    Also, if you can afford it, look into getting an hd 7850. i think you'll be happier with it if this is a dedicated gaming machine for a 1080p monitor.
  2. Why would I get a power supply that is more expensive and less wattage?
    I don't want to overclock because there is no need to.
  3. i'm not sure what you're looking at, but the power supply i picked out IS cheaper than the one you did ($110-15% promo code = $93.50), and that's without the mail in rebate. and it's a better quality power supply than rosewill's hive series. it's not all about the number of watts. you asked for opinions...
  4. $869AR


    Pick out a display as per your tastes, massively better gaming performance :P
