Guessing for gaming, if so would go the 4670K and a CPU cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO ($35) or if you need the Hyper threading in the 4770 and can slip it in buget, get the 4770K and the EVO cooler, DRAM I'd suggest going to the 1600/9 GSkill Snipers.....and how about an OS and an optical drive

Okay thanks, I will try out the corsair. its just i've heard bad stories with differnet PSU's, so dont know how to tell if its a good brand or not, Any tips on how to tell (Other then reading reviews off Memoryexpress, As some dont have any)

(Also, Whats the minimum Wattage i could go down to? Just wanting to know if this has enough power) Also, Would like info on how to tell if any brand is a good brand... like, for motherboards and things, Except for CPU and GPU, Since, Those are usually personal Preference...

Hopefully not asking to much... :D
