$123.36 for the CX600 is way over-priced:

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028

 

$69.99 shipped, $49.99 after the $20 rebate card

 

If you're willing to spend $123.36 on a PSU, then here's a PSU that is way better than the CX600 and costs less:

 

550W SeaSonic G Series for $89.99 shipped

Newegg has a link on the product page, but it's not placed in a good spot (it's not exactly where I would have put it if I had made that page).  Here's the link:

 

http://images10.newegg.com/uploadfilesfornewegg/rebate/SH/Corsair3MIRsFeb5Feb1113cx61.pdf

 

Although, I would go for the 550W G Series myself because it's a high-end modular PSU.

 

 

Also, the DVI cable you're looking at could be a low-quality one even though it claims to be high quality.  I recommend getting a cable from MonoPrice.com:

 

6-foot 28AWG DVI cable for $5.71

 

6-foot 24AWG DVI cable (thicker, higher quality) for $7.64

 

These are generally top-of-the-line cables at prices that are similar to the cheapies.  I have the 10-foot 24AWG cable and I love it.  It's a little thick, but that's ok with me.

 

MonoPrice.com is famous for their cables.

As an owner of both the Antec 300 and an NZXT Source 210, I can tell you you will get a better case for the money if you go with an NZXT Source 210

Here's a link: It comes in black too

I agree, no point in spending extra money on the case, the source 210 is great.

Am I wrong in saying that he wont need a z77 mobo with a 2500k.? (Have that confirmed with someone else first because I could be wrong)

Also you could get the 830 instead of an 840 if its cheaper.

And for games you probably don't need 16GB RAM . You could get a better graphics card with the savings .

And if you're like me, you probably don't need a dvd burner. You can install windows off usb.

You can save 40 bucks by getting 8GB of RAM instead of 16GB.

You can also save another 20 by going for the 1TB version

Also, do you need 2 monitors?
