You dont need 650 watts 550 watts would still be more then enough unless you want to SLI/Crossfire later?

And if you pay a little more you get get a better PSU then the Corsair one

Looks like a great build.
You'll be happy with either of those Video Cards (660ti or 7950) So it's really up to your preference. They will be more than enough for the resolution you want to play at.

You can save a bit on the Ram, if you get a 1600Mhz kit instead of the 1866Mhz. It's only 20$ or so, but Ivy likes 1600Mhz the most anyways.

As for Overclocking, 4.0Ghz is do-able. Ivy Bridge sips power, and that cooler should work nice until about 4.4Ghz. Ivy runs hot anyways because of the whole IHS TIM, seating issue.

As for the 1155 Socket being "dead", Intel usually makes a new Socket for new designs anyways. That's like saying 1366, or even 755 is dead, even though those processors still tear it up.

I would go with the Sapphire 7950, Rosewill Capstone for the PSU which is a Super Flower unit and the Gigabyte Z77X-D3H for the motherboard which is a better choice: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z77-express-ivy-bridge-benchmark,3254-35.html

The ASRock Z77 Extreme4 uses older D-PAK MOSFETs and has doubled analog VRM's so the Gigabyte PD is a better choice.

Will I notice a diference with a 1866Mhz RAM over the 1600Mhz??

I want an Asus MoBo because it has the more user friendly BIOS and since I am a newbie on this i'd like one.

Thanks for the help so far guys

Absolutely not, just a couple of points more in benchmarks at most.

The Asus BIOS isn't more user friendly than Gigabyte's or any other major brand tbh...

Jumping to the BIOS section you'll see form the screenshot that it's very easy to use. thumb.gif

Corsair does not make a single PSU themselfs they buy from 4 other brands and have their own sticker on the outside of the PSU box

Some of the Rosewill / Super Flower / Kingwin units is better made then the Corsair units

And no with 1866 MHz Vs 1600 MHz you cant see any diference other then in some fixed benchmarks there is no real world diference
