Also i am not very good with hardware and can this be 64 bit PC.

Extra information: i will be buying OS windows 7 pro 64 bit, don't need keyboard mouse, i will be getting between January 1 and January 7 price range around $ 1650. I'll be using this PC mainly for gaming, watching movies, surfing the web and doing assignments.

What is your budget and what do you plan to use it for? First off the sound card is not needed and can be left off completely. Second the 3770 won't work with an X79 board. You'd completely have to redo your configuration if you want to go X79, and if you want to play games it's best to go with Z77 and an i5-3570K.

And then 1500W for $52? I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole - leave the sound card off and invest in a better PSU that's certified and rated.

OP is in Australia - links to Newegg won't work. :lol: \

Good suggestion for PSU though, but PCPAC isn't available in Australia.

For that budget I'd suggest something like this:

They do use more power, but aren't as good as Intel in gaming.
