I am looking to build a gaming rig for around $1200. So far, I know that I want to go with an i5 3570k, an MSI gtx 760, and a 256gig SSD. Everything else I would like to get some suggestions/opinions on. I have a 1TB 7200rpm Western Digital drive in my current rig I'll be using for media, so really only shopping for a SSD. Pretty much most of my choices are based on popularity & good reviews.
Things in particular I'd like suggestions on:
- A good power supply
- Opinions on a good 256gig SSD in the sub $225 range, the Samsung 840 Pro series had the best reviews from what I saw
- What I need in order to safely OC the i5 3570k to the 4-4.2 range
