I need a good power supply thats cheap and also I just picked out that ram but if anyone knows of a better set for the same price or cheaper please post below.
Everything else should be taken care of.

RAM is fine. Love the PSU, the DVD drive makes it a no-brainer

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.

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

Yeah, RAM is nice, great price. 9-9-9-24 timing at 1600 and 1.5v is very nice

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.

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

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

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.

It's worth it if you buy the i5-3570k otherwise it's pretty pointless investment imo.
