What do you think?

Intel Core i5 3470
MSI GeForce GTX660 Ti PE
AsRock Z77 Extreme4
Corsair Carbide 400R
Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb 1600Mhz cmz8gx3m2a1600c9
OCZ ATX 500W ModXStream
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO

Will this PSU handle this system with no problems? If I wanted to upgrade to a H100 watercooler would it still be capable of doing the job?
I searched about the RAMs and I didn't find any problem with them, but I could use a second opinion...

Thanks in advance!

More about what think
  1. If you want to oc the cpu, that's not the one to have, get the i5-3570k.
    That psu ain't bad, but if you can buy a xfx 550w pro or a rosewill hive 550w, it will be better.
    In my opinion not worth of getting that cooler(h100), the one you have in the list is pretty good one, if you want something better ,get the noctua NH-D14.
  2. I'm not really looking into overclock and as I saw some reviews the 3470 would fit me.
    Do you think the OCZ-ZT550W Modular PSU worth the $20 more?

  3. If you don't plan to oc, get a h77 motherboard(same features minus oc capabilities and multi gpu support, then again with a 500w psu i don't think you'll be adding another 660ti) and drop the cooler, the stock one is enough and it's quieter.
    There's the asrock h77 pro4 mvp.
    That psu is better but the xfx or the hive 550w is in my opinion a better choice.
    I'll put some links here :

  4. I live outside the US and I can't find this motherboard, I guess I'm gonna stick with the AsRock Z77 Pro4
  5. Grab any H77 mobo that has the features you need and is made by a good brand (MSI,Asus,Asrock)
  6. Yep, I made my decision. It's going to be like this:

    Intel Core i5 3470
    ASUS GeForce GTX660 Ti DirectCU II 2GB
    AsRock Z77 Pro4
    Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb 1600MHz DDR3
    Corsair Carbide 400R
    OCZ ATX 500W ModXStream
    CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO + CoolerMaster Xtraflo R4-XFBS-20PK-R1

    Thanks for your help guys.
  7. Although its your money, you are seriously just ignoring everybody. The H77 will DO THE SAME JOB as the Z77 board. The reason to get Z77? OVERCLOCKING FYI. 3470 = NOT A K SERIES CPU = NO OVERCLOCKING >.>. Sorry about getting hostile, but you should really consider the information people on this thread gave you.
  8. Why the hyper 212 evo on a i5-3470 ?
    You don't need that, the stock cooler is fine, you're not going to overclock.
    Check if any h77 mobo is cheaper on your area, just type h77, see if it's cheaper, if it's not, then get the pro 4, but only if it's cheaper.
  9. See the coment above, I can't find *nice* H77 motherboards in my country, only Z77s. The H77s I can buy are very low end. This mobo I chose might be the best choice for me. I read all the coments and I wish I could get the Asrock H77 pro4 mvp as djangoringo said, but...
  10. If you can't find one then get the pro 4.
    Is this from europe ?
  11. Brazil.
  12. Unfortunately i don't know any shop from there, nor pcpartpicker shows anything from Brazil.
    The only tip is to look out for a h77 or z77 mobo and see what's the cheapest.
    If like i said it's that one, then get it, no big deal.
