Additional Comments: Hi, I'm looking for advice on a pc I'm building, this will be my first build. I don't use the pc to play games so I'm just looking to build a pretty nice pc for typically use. Music, movies, surf internet, home theater, photoshop, etc. Below is my parts list I've put together so far. I've done some research and pulled this parts from recommendations from other users. I have no idea on what size power supply I'll need so please recommend something. I have an older monitor I'm using now but will probably upgrade to a new 20+ inch LCD.
You can go cheaper on the power supply. I recommend something in the 500 watt range. Which, you can pick up for around $40. And you can save about $50 by getting the I5 3420 which CANNOT be over-clocked, but, is around the same speed as the 3570k.
