So I've perused the forums for awhile and slapped together a 1000ish
gaming rig based off what the community seems to like. I'm ordering
the parts at the beginning of next week. I just need some peeps to
make sure it's solid.

Sony AD-7280S-0B DVD/CD Writer $17.99
Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case $49.49
Corsair 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply $89.99
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor $219.99
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard $134.99
G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $42.99
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $89.99

+ GTX 660ti $299.99

Comes out to 925.42

Should I order the GTX 660ti ASAP? Will they run out of stock?
How is the PSU and the Wattage? I'll probably OC some time down the road.
Anything else I'm missing on my first PC build?

Thanks

Seems OK. Id go with an aftermarket heatsink since you said youll be OCing down the road. A good heatsink at a very cheap price is the CoolerMaster Hyper212 Evo or +.
