Oh one more thing..Just because something is all ASUS doesn't always mean it will perform better...It's like the AMD scorpious gimmick. Just cause it's all AMD it doesn't make it perform better than someone that has an Intel chip and chipset and an AMD card.

lol, i can't tell if that makes sense or not..basically, you are good to go on what you have bud. Just research a good PSU and if you can afford it a better cpu ( not that what you have chosen already is bad).

You can find reviews for PSU's here and use the PSU Calculator which tells you how big of a PSU you really need smile.gif

Thank you for the help! I know i'm gonna be abit rusty, but hopefully everything goes well.

Just could you help me out with knowing how much power would ONE of the Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II, GPU draw ?
cause for the power supply I was thinking of an Corsoir 650W Tx V2

Thanks alot for the help too! I have an old Tiny desktop that goes all the way back to 2002 with an ATI Rodeon 9700 SE graphics card lol I'm hoping to get it from my family soon so i can open it up and have a browse around and fiddle. Hopefully it'll give me a better understanding with the interior of a PC. Also would the Corsoir 650W Tx V2 be able to cope with the parts that I've mentioned? especially the Graphics Card.

For the CPU is the i6 worth considering of buying? because I want this computer to be a "Bad Ass Mofo", Pulp Fiction style. But I am making sure that I don't jump the gun with anything. I don't want to sound like a complete noob where i'll just buy all the components and find out i've bought the wrong thing or need more of this or less of that. For my first time I'm trying to make it as flawless as possible.

Thats why I really appreciate all of your support!

As I have mentioned above, you can use PSU Calculator to find out how big PSU you need.

And here you can find plenty of reviews of PSU's

I have a little question about this Z77, how does a CoolerMaster V6GT fit on it? I kinda hope it does, I'm planning to jump on the Ivy Bridge wagon along with this one and I dont plan to sell my cooler yet.

Also, How's it about heat? I'm on a Antec 902 case, and I dont doubt its just fine, but I heard some bad things about the past Z68 Sabertooth about that and I was kinda worried.

Thanks~!

I'm just curious is there a processor cooler that doesn't require Thermal Paste? if there isn't is the better option to go for a water cooling system?
