Everything is in order,but you should get a better power supply,550w of quality juice is minimum for i5 and gtx 660 in my opinion,everything else is good to go,cheers !!!

That 2500K is outdated along with that P67 board. It's meant for a future dual card set up and it's based on older architecture. You don't want 4x2GB of RAM, you want 2x4GB, that psu is an over priced door stop and hold off on the SSD for now or size up to a $100 120 - 128 GB SSD. 60GB is a waste of money unless your into spending that dough to get a faster boot up time. Not really worth it imo.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, video editing, surfing the web.
Parts Not Required: Corsair Vengeance M60 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Parts Preferences: I would prefer Intel for my cpu but I do not know much about motherboards let alone have a favorite brand.
Overclocking: Maybe but not for a few months if at all.
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: Varying, but primarily 1920x1080
Additional Comments: Quieter is better but it's not a big deal.


I also changed the combination a bit (* means changed)
