If no overclock, they why not just use the stock intel cooler, so you don't need to buy one or any thermal paste. You can always buy a cooler later if you want to overclock.

@jgaf, are you near a microcenter? you can save a lot of money by getting the combo deal there. A 7950 is better than the 660Ti. Get it

Nope no microcenters in Puerto Rico. The cheapest retail store is CompUSA, but from what I have estimated I will spend more buying at CompUSA than newegg. If I order online I don't have to pay state tax and they don't have all the available parts. Also, I considering using billmelater for half of the list I got $501 credit with them (6 months no interest).

Is the 750W PSU overkill? Using the website partpicker non of the builds I have tried go over 400W. I guess I was thinking of adding a second card later on, but I could upgrade the PSU if I ever decide to do that.

All I did was ask what the op's overclocking plans were, and state that the chosen cooler will not be enough if he wants to push the chip. One question, and one statement of fact. This was never a debate about what is "perfectly" good or not.

750w is more than you need with one card, but if you will add a second it might not be a bad idea. That tool kit is not really necessary, I bought one too but didn't really use much of it.

If you are trying to save money, then stick with one card, reduce the power supply, forget the cooler, paste, and tool kit.
