Personally, i'd suggest going with a larger SSD. Almost everybody now recommends 120gb minimum.

That power supply is one of the worst in the industry. There's also no need to get a Z68 board with an i3-2100 since you can't overclock. What is your budget? I would suggest a different build.

Ok, thanks for replies :)  My budget is around 600 dollars, and I don't really want to go higher than that. I'm considering upgrading it later, since I really wanna do this just to build a computer that works and can run some games and programs at atleast medium settings.

I already have a monitor, so It's just the build that I am focusing on. I also have a OS (Windows 7 Home Premium), so that's out of the way.

I buy my parts from newegg solely since their warranties are pretty good.

I prefer Intel processors and motherboards, that's why I'm going with the i3, because it's cheaper but still a good processor.

I am not planning to Overclock.

My Monitor is 1920x1800. The graphics card I chose doesn't support that resolution, so I plan to upgrade it later to a card that supports it.

Lastly, I'm wondering how powerful my Power Supply has to be :)  Thanks!
