Mother Board: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM

Video Card: XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7850 1GB

Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3

PSU: CORSAIR TX Series 650W

Everything looks fine to me except maybe the CPU and PSU. I would go with a more reputable PSU company such as Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair. Also get an i3 3220 because it is the latest architecture.

Thanks for the advice, the 3220 is higher proformance and cheaper, as for the PSU, thanks for the advice again, I dont know what brands are "better" than others.

I went with the CORSAIR TX Series 650W, Same price, and wattage.
