Hi all,
I'm putting together a new computer. My old one just isn't cutting it anymore.
This is what I'm planning on so far:

Mobo:eVGA Z68 SLI 1155 ATX
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
RAM:?
PSU:?
CASE: Cooler Master HAF X RC-942-KKN1
Graphic Card:

I've got the mobo and cpu. Still working on the other parts as I save up the money. I'm looking for suggestions on the RAM, PSU, and graphics card. I don't need anything special. I'd like to use my computer to play some games, nothing too graphic intensive, and watch the occasional video. Theres so much info out there. I'd really appreciate some advice on my setup. Thanks in advance.

About how much do you want to spend on the three parts?

I was thinking about $100-125 for the graphics card. $75 or so for the psu and around $40 or so for 8gb of RAM. Somewhere in that ballpark

Here you go
gpu - his hd 7770 $115 after $20 rebate http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0081VASP2/?tag=pcpapi-20
psu - xfx pro550w $54 after $10 rebate http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&m...
The xfx pro550w says it will take 1 or 2 weeks so if you need one now you could get this one
psu - corsair cx500w $52 after $10 rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ram - g.skill ripjaws x 8gb $25 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
That's a great deal for that ram you should get it now before it goes off sale.
