    I would change the HHD you have to a storage drive and go with a SSD like a Samsung 830 128GB --->

    750w is a bit of an overkill at this point but if you in fact plan on going SLI in the future I'd keep it.

    Personally, I would go with the i5-3570K --->

    Just my $0.02

    Have plans to go with a SSD after i get some money, maybe after 4 or 5 months.

    And yes, I'm thinking of going SLI in future. So a 750 W
