I am planning to go for this barebones package and then build up on this

http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/barebones/bb-35708g....

preferably intel ivy bridge (my main concern in this build is to cut down power consumption as much as possible)




Motherboard : Intel Z77 Chipset Motherboard as mentioned in that barebones package (is this any good?)



Ram :- Can you guys recommend any good quality ram that matches up well with a Intel Z77 Chipset Motherboard ?

GFX : - none for a few months till i research and save up for one, will be using the onboard on the i5 3570 for now)

PSU : Novatech PowerStation Production 500W PSU (i couldnt dig up much info on this, apparaently its a ocz psu but novatech rebranded? would it be adequate for a gtx 550ti or 600 card in the future?

HDD : ill be going for a ssd for the main os/softwares, looking for a low power consuming 5400/7200 drive for other files/movies etc (planning to use a 2.5 inch laptop hdd to keep power consumption and noise low)


Overclocking:Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: no

Monitor Resolution: 24 or 27 inch (again with low power consumption)

Additional Comments: Nothing much really


Looking forward to hearing your feedback guys, this forum is very helpful !
