  1. That Seasonic is a good PSU but it might be a bit underpowered. This will give you more room for future expansion:

    Otherwise everything else looks good.

    ASRock Z77 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    Also, am I required to purchase any additional cables?
