I'm going to build a PC soon and I'm concern weather my power supply and these components are compatible with each other or not ? here's the specs

Intel I7 3770K
compatible mobo lga 1155 socket (please suggest any)
Ripjaw Gskills 2x4 GB 1600 Mhz rams
Cooler master HAF 932 case
ATI readon 5850
PSU 600 watts Zebronics (which I already have)
1TB HDD
A dvd writer and other fans and stuffs

so is my PSU good enough to handle or do I need to buy another PSU ?
also I want to know motherboards with 1155 sockets offers multi GPU ? please suggest any good motherboard too .. thanks :)

I don't particularly like that brand of power supply, but if you are on a super-duper tight budget, then I guess it has to stay.

If not, I would recommend a new one, as Zebronics is not the best brand there is in terms of reliability.

Are you gaming? If so, you don't need the 3770K. Just go for the 3570K and this motherboard:

Go for this, and since it seems your on a mid budget, I'll put in some good quality parts for you.

i5 3570k
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
Asrock Z77 Extreme 4
Ripjaw G.Skill 8GB 1600 Mhz
Coolermaster Elite 430, You don't need a case that big
HD 7870. Look, your putting pretty high end equipment, with a not very new graphics card. I wouldn't recommend it.
Keep your PSU, as long as you don't run it at 100%, it should be fine.
Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB 7200 RPM
Whatever DVD writer you want.

Your savings from the case and the i7 should be able to cover the 7870, forgot to mention that.

Yes I' am building the PC for gaming and rendering purpose only ... and the unfortunate part is .. I already have that GPU 5850 .. can't buy another .. plus budget is too tight .. and I don't think I'm going to compromise with looks ^_^ .. by the way is I5 3570K better than I7 I mentioned ? and guys really thanks for help :)

The i5 and i7 perform essentially the same in games, the difference can only be seen in benchmarks.

Is your video rendering job somewhat intense? If it's just the regular/everyday rendering then you probably won't need the hyperthreading that much.

The i5 should suffice. And you should go with a higher quality power supply.

80 Plus certifications are usually a good thing. Generally good brands are Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, OCZ, and PC Power & Cooling.
