Will you be overclocking?

Probably not, never done it before, like i said i'm pretty new to this kind of depth in computers. Might do it later on when the cpu isnt that high end anymore?

The reason I asked is, if you never, ever, ever overclock, then you would be able to spend less money on a non-K series CPU and a motherboard that's not designed for overclocking. Those motherboards are designed for overclocking. A motherboard that isn't designed for overclocking that's compatible with those CPUs (1150) will likely have the H81 or H87 chipset instead of Z87.

 

By the way, I want to help you select a good PSU so that you're protected by a PSU that delivers good stable power.

No. Just report it and ask for it to be deleted, stating that it's an accidental duplicate.

I'm really not sure if i'll be overclocking, but i thought it was a nice upgrade kit wink.gif. I bought a new PSU around 2 years ago, so i think that one is still pretty good. It's a corsair 700GS.

Oh. Yeah, the GS700 is ok. It's not the greatest, but it's definitely leaps and bounds better than some of the junk out there.
