Tell me about my build

I will be building a new system soon and would like opinions on my build and what could be improved upon for an easier price. I am building a gaming rig and want to be able to run current games on the highest graphics.

Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz LGA 1155 Boxed Processor (sandy bridge) $159.99

SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard $239.99

High Current Gamer Series 900W ATX Power Supply $109.99

Vengeance Series 16GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL10 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 8GB Memory Modules) $79.99

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (would like to find cheaper but want to run all current games on highest graphics)
$229.99

NZXT Crafted Series Phantom ATX Full Tower Gaming $119.99

Let me know if I can increase performance for cheaper than what is listed

  1. A 900W power supply is complete overkill, a 600W would be more than enough.
  2. get the 3570k, i agree with TSporout, change your PSU get a 660ti. check the prices at Newegg. Cant check it right now since im in the office ^^ hehe.
  3. Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz LGA 1155 Processor $169.99

    and

    EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-3662-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card $299.99??????

    And are you sure I want to get a lower power supply? I am planning on adding to the system. I will eventually sli another card in and I am putting more fans... also going to be adding water cooling
  4. Plus $109.99 for a 900w is a great price
  5. Dropped to

    CX Series CX750 750 Watt ATX 12V Power Supply
    $89.99

    getting a 900 watts PSU will just be a waste.

    just check this how a 66ti draws power on average and on gaming
