    My budget is under 1000$ overclocking is a maybe, depends on the situation if needed or not. I have the OS covered, and I added the PSU (I don't know why it didn't go in) and removed the DVD Drive because I found one in my garage I could use.

    This will be used for gaming/watching movies and maybe later on making videos/messing around with FL Studio. So basically an all purpose computer, but mainly for gaming.

    I also picked the mobo and case specifically for mobility/LAN parties.
  4. Are you planning to add second gpu later?
    If yes you better get 750w psu now
    If no you can downgrade your psu to 550w.
    Oh and this cooler will help with overclocking http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr1
