Also could someone tell where exactly the power plug in on the motherbored is? I'm not formiliar with power supply plugs as I am with connecting sata hdd's

-use a good case like a antec 302. The case you have is crap
-don't use a crappy power supply. I'd suggest a fx 550w for 59.99 after MIR at us.ncix
-I'd suggest getting some patriot viper 3 1600mhz for 25.99 after MIR at newegg
-b75 won't let you overclock. Get something like a z77 extreme4
-il you are getting a gtx 670, get a msi power edition

by the way could you link me to the computer case? And if it's not under 90 could you refer to me a good enough case under 90?

Under 685$ and you threw a 670 in there?!?!?!
When you have that limited of a budget, don't spend it all on a Graphics card, get the Case, Power supply, and motherboard right the first time.

As was stated before, if you are going to get a 3570K then you should get a Z77 series motherboard that will let you overclock the chip. The K at the end marks an "unlocked" chip that will be open for overclocking. If you don't plan on overclocking then saving a few bucks by going i5-3450 is reasonable.

If you do plan on overclocking you should include an aftermarket CPU cooler, no need to get fancy here, a 35$ CoolerMaster 212 EVO will do just fine (Have my 3570K running at 4.5 GHz using one).

The case is really up to you, whatever looks ok and fits your budget.

I totally agree with you on going balls out on the GPU (GTX670 love it!) as it is the most important part of a gaming PC.

The power supply is really not a good place to try and save money. You also have a decision to make, do you go for a ~550W power supply or do you crank that up to ~750W for the glorious day when you plop a second GTX670 in there SLI.

Memory is fine although most people would recommend going for 1600mHz memory modules, not convinced it makes that big a difference but i don't think they are that much more expensive. From personal experience i would recommend LOW PROFILE memory cause nothing is more frustrating than not being able to mount your aftermarket CPU cooler because the memory modules are too high. An example of low profile memory: GSKILL ARES series.

Good luck with your build!

I guess it would be a good idea to buy a cpu cooler like that since TheBigTroll here is saving me some good money.

What about a Wireless N 150 card. Where I am is no where near for even a 25 foot ethernet cord to reach.

I havent read too much about that. Is it as simple as plug it into an outlet and plug an Ethernet cable from the adapter to PC?

yep. all you need to do is plug your modem or whatever to a adaptor into a wall, plug another adaptor somewhere else in the house where you want internet, and then connect a ethernet cable to the adaptor to get internet.

costs more but no latency
