I got the power supply pretty cheap so anyone have experience from use it ?
do I need to add anything eles beside ssd? And which brand ssd is good?
For noobie question, my video card said sli support, so my video card have SLI? why they dont write like gtx 570 sli like other gtx
Good choices man! Nice CPU, nice motherboard, pretty decent HDD and your case is nice
The only thing I can comment on is your PSU. I have never heard of the brand and I usually wouldn't want to cheap out on the PSU if I were you. If you can, get a quality Corsair PSU or even a Antec PSU.
As for the GPU, it looks great, good warranty too! SLI is where you pair two card of the same model to boost your graphics performance. So while your GPU says that it supports SLI, you will need another card to be able to take advantage of SLI (I think you won't need another card anyway, yours looks good).
I would advise you to get a Corsair, Samsung, Intel or Crucial SSD. A lot of people on the forums are going to say get a Crucial M4 because they are so reliable. Either way, whatever SSD you pick out of the brands I listed about should serve you well. Just remember to get a 60GB SSD if you want to use it as your boot drive because Windows 7 (if thats what you are using) doesn't take up all that much space so 60GB should suffice.

For the hdd, I got recommend by a friend who will help me build that pc, he said cuz it 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s faster than 3 sata. Alot ppl recommend me for samsung f3 but when I read review, lots said it is not last long. So with your experience, If you really really think those good, I will buy it
I will love to get the haf 942 case but my budget kind of low and I got it already. Can I return to newegg, I didnt open it yet
The tomhand link is dead, Some one told me crucial ssd or ozc is good. Here the website they give me and told me to buy the top 5. Is it good?
I dont think I will overlock it, just use for normail game. And why do I need to overclock? get extra speed? Cuz I heard mobo will not last long after OC
I got the corsair 24gb ddr3 for RAM
But really advice, thanks
First of, why did you get 24GB of RAM? You should only need 8GB and that is even overkill.
Secondly the Samsung SpinPoint is a great HDD to have, I would get one because it is faster than the Seagate.
Lastly, overclocking makes your computer perform faster and is also fun
Just because people told you that is unreliable isn't 100% true. Overclocking is definitely worth it especially if you are getting the 2500K CPU. Why get the 2500K if you don't plan on overclocking? Save your money and get the i5 2500 because it has a locked multiplier.
If I were you, I would definitely overclock because of the added performance and it is fun to do!
