  1. PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 500W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703035&Tpk=PC%20Power%20%26%20Cooling%20Silencer%20MK%20III%20500W%2080%20PLUS%20Br

    You get a free DVD burner with it :).
  2. I would go for this one if your planing on overclocking your gpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119
  3. RAM is fine. Love the PSU, the DVD drive makes it a no-brainer
  4. The SeaSonic is nice, little more efficient. No DVD drive, so it's a lesser value, but the extra Amps on the 12v rail are nice. The PC P&C is modular though, which is nice. Either way, both are plenty of power.
  5. Definitely overclocking the GPU so http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119 is looking pretty good.

    Any suggestions on RAM. Is the one I picked a good quality?
  6. Just noticed the SeaSonic is modular too, so there you go, another point for that one. I guess I would go with the SeaSonic, extra amps and 80+ Gold wins it
  7. Yeah, RAM is nice, great price. 9-9-9-24 timing at 1600 and 1.5v is very nice

    If you want to cut out Amazon and save on shipping, this is comparable

  9. Your choice on ram is fine.I use it in my other build works great!
  10. Do you guys think I should replace the motherboard I chose with this one.

    Because it comes with the free ram it wouldnt be that much more then the current one I picked.
  11. You can save yourself some money by getting an H77 chipset motherboard instead of a z77 one - the only reasons for z77 are overclocking and SLI/Xfire.
  12. I plan on overclocking my graphics card and adding another 670 later one next year. Sorry I should have mentioned that.
    Im just wondering if the extreme 6 is worth the $30 upgrade
  13. Get a Corsair TX750 which is on sale right now.
  14. Link is broken. What was the MB you are looking at?
  15. ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $160

    Is the one im looking at on newegg. It comes with a free 8gb of ram which I would be spending $30 on so total the upgrade from the extreme3 would cost me $30
  16. Pretty much I have a leftover $100 to spend so if you see anything worth the upgrade i could go for it. Graphics card wise id like to stick to nvidia though.
  17. It's worth it if you buy the i5-3570k otherwise it's pretty pointless investment imo.
  18. Parts ordered thank you for all of your help everyone.
