Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
Model #:Twelve Hundred V3

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Model #:SABERTOOTH Z77

MSI N660TI-2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770K

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C9D-16GXH

So here is the computer i am building. The motherboard is still kind of a toss up. I might get the

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

If someone could give me some suggestions towards a PSU i would be very grateful. This is the first computer i am building. Which is also why: If you see a item that doesnt fit or is not very reputable just say so, so i dont make a huge mistake by buying a faulty product.
Thanks

1-350 i can spend. Looking for 750-1000w. I might get a second videocard, or upgrade to a better one in general. and i am going to get more ram later on too. Not sure how much watts i need.

In the mobo spec the LGA 1155 and LGA 2011 refers to the cpu socket. The LGA 1155 has 1155 pins in the socket and the cpu has1155 holes to accept them. The LGA2011 has 2011 pins and is much largerand the cpu is also larger and has 2011 holes. The LGA 2011 AND 1155 are not interchangeable. The next intel cpus Haswell will use a new socket with 1150 pins. That's Intel.
