Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: This coming weekend

Budget Range: $1,100-$1500 total cost

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Are you buying a monitor: No I'll be using a 23'' 1080p monitor


Parts to Upgrade: I need a complete system

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://www.Newegg.com

Location: San Antonio Texas

Parts Preferences: I'm liking the I5-3570k, I have my eye on the Asus Gene 1155 motherboard, and the Gigabyte 670 GPU.

Overclocking: Very slight if any but I want the option.

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I wont be playing lots of different games, mainly just 1 or 2, such as BF3 and Guild Wars 2. I have a separate computer for storage. I don't ever plan on doing SLI or Crossfire so I was looking at Micro ATX with great quality for overclocking in the future. I am interested in the Asus GENE motherboard because it seems to have great quality and great on board sound compared to cheaper motherboards.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I'm currently using a 8 year old computer and need an upgrade. I haven't built a machine in over 8 years.
I don't plan on over clocking initially but will in the future. I'd prefer to stay near the $1200 price range but am flexible up to $1500.

ASUS Maximus V Gene LGA 1155 Intel Z77

Intel Core i5-3570K

I'd rather get the XFX 550W as 650W is overkill for one 670.

Can anyone recommend other Modular PSU's that would work with my system? and if I switch to that 7970 will it effect the needed PSU?
