My thing.. Why would I need a 750W.. Everyone said 600W would be plenty. Also isn't the EVGA Superclocked a better card than the MSI and the motherboard I would be getting better than the one listed? I agree the price is 40 bucks better but seems like the parts are a little less as well.

Good build TBT, but:

Get a WD drive.
Get 600w/650w.

Best solution

1: assuming you would do SLI, i put in a 750w psu. if you are not, get a 550w version
2: seagate and WD are about the same. WD has a longer warranty but im not going to pay 20 bucks for that
3: lol evga. msi power edition gtx670 is the best one out there. has pretty much the best cooler and has overvolting support which the evga or any other gtx 670 do no
4: you can get the UP4 but there isnt too much of a difference in terms of performance or overclocking given you arent doing anything extreme. and at that price point, id be getting a asus z77-v pro (more features)
