  1. Yep, you're good to go.
  2. It's all ok, but you can do better for the price.

    First off, that PSU is terrible and terribly overpriced. This is better and cheaper:
    CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

    I'd grab 8GB of RAM that looks something like this and save $50:
    SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3D/US

    You can grab a 3570k and save $100 or so, and still be just fine for gaming.

    If you do all of this then you'll be able to get a 670 instead of a 660 ti and even have $$ left over to put toward a second one or whatever.
  3. spend the 30.00 more for the 840 pro it faster.
    pick up windows 8 it a lot faster then windows 7. for 5.00 you can download the program to put start button back from stardoc.

    is this psu going to be powerfull enough? i went with the 875 w because i didnt think 750 would cut it
  6. A good 500w PSU would run a 660ti no problem. The 750w will be way more than enough.
