  1. You need to have more information. What are you trying to achieve? Smooth bf on 1080p at ultra?High? What is your budget. What resolution you are playing in. Main purpose for built?
  2. From the look of your parts a first good tip is never buy a low end psu. Try getting corsair, thermaltake, ocz or something better.
  3. what are the components you have?

    and agree about the psu. The apevia is not good enough . Use old 80+ bronze [or better] rated units

    Thermaltake and OCZ aren't really any better. PC Power & Cooling, Seasonic, anything made by Super Flower. Check out the index - it will tell you what models are good and what are crap: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-oem-manufacturer,2913.html


    Apevia power supplies are garbage no matter what model you go with. There's no reason to ever purchase one. I'd cut back on the motherboard and invest more in the power supply. You don't need a Sniper if you're not going to overclock.

    I kind of think of fully modular PSUs as a luxury item. Partial modular PSUs are probably around your price range but most of them aren't from good manufacturers.

    That looks much better. You might have room to upgrade to the 3570K and Z77 with the money saved but I'm not sure what your max budget is.

    If you're using the OEM version you will need a new copy. That license is married to that motherboard, so to speak.
