Use this so it will be easier for everyone to compare parts with prices : http://pcpartpicker.com/ It gives you a nice little url to use so others can see what you are planning Example: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1eU7F

Do you need the PCIe wireless Adapter?

You don't need so many watts on the power supply unless you are planning to try and quad SLI the 660ti sometime in the future.. which is know is impossible with that motherboard. tongue.gif Try and make sure the power supply is bronze certified(only difference between bronze and plat is that plat saves you a tiny bit on the electric bill.),

Just have to ask if you are interesting in overclocking that in the future, if so you will want the 3770 k version and will want to buy an aftermarkect cooler.

Another question: why the 3770 and not the 4770? Just curious.

second this man. you will only need about 450-500W PSU to power your system.(if you dont plan on going SLI)
and if you plan on overclocking the CPU go with the 3770K if not find a H77 or a B75 motherboard
though who doesnt love OCing =D

I think the wifi card will be useful if i have roommates or in a house where i cant use a 100ft ethernet cord. About the overclocking I really dought that i will overclock. I will probably get an sti in the future but as for now I wont be.

With that mobo you will only be able to do a simple SLI, in which case you still wouldn't need 850 watts on the power supply. 600 watts should be good, maybe up 700 if you are planning on overclocking them and the cpu(And even then that might be a bit much).

On the other hand, if you were planning to Tri SLI or Quad SLI them, then you would need a better power supply as well as a different mobo.

If your in a college dorm or apartment, a wireless setup is not very secure at all.

Just letting you know.

I won't be living in a college dorm just for a wiifi home setup or apartment complex. what kind of mobo would i need when i want to try out SLI. also thanks for that website link its pretty cool."Another question: why the 3770 and not the 4770? Just curious." it didn't seem like i was worth the price for now. also wanted to ask you all about the SSD the only reason i want an SSD is to run the OS off of and maybe a few programs that i will use on a day to day basis how many gb would you recommend sense the build i have up to has a 90gb drive

The 90GB is enough. More than enough. Windows (Stupid Windows) uses up to 40GB. Which is quite much, but okay for your SSD.

The Z77 Extreme 4 is able to do basic SLI(two video cards of the same type.) If you want to try Tri SLI or Quad SLI then you would need something like the Z77 extreme 6(for Tri SLI) or more likely a gigabyte board(like the gigabyte sniper 3 or the ASrock extreme9.).
