Hi everyone, this is my first day on this website. I am thinking of building my own gaming computer and i'm wondering do all these parts work together and what psu am i going to need?

The Parts are

Mars Midi Tower Gaming Case (with the temp display)
AMD Bulldozer FX-4170 Quad Core 4.2GHz
Asus M5A99X EVO Motherboard
1GB nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Graphics Card
3TB Hard Drive
3.0 USB ports
2 extra LED fans
DVD Drive

I don't know if these parts will work together or what psu I will need. I did an online PSU calculator and it gave me a wattage of over 1,000 which seemed a bit high. Can anyone suggest a good PSU at a reasonable price? Thanks in advance, Gary

Im no PC expert but you dont need 32GB of ram unless youre doing intensive 3d modeling stuff. After 8GB you really dont see very much performace increases. Get high speed 8GB ram and spend the extra money on a better GPU or CPU where games need these most.
