I'm no expert but that PSU is overkill unless you planning to pick up another 680 to SLI.

Use the money you would save on it to get double the ram (2 x 4gb).

Also for others to help you, please include what you will be using the computer for and your price range. Depending on your needs, you might be able to get away with the Asus Z77-V or V Pro.

And did you mean to leave out a SSD or HDD?

yeah I meant to leave out the HDD because i already have two that ill be using. and mostly ill be using this for heavy AutoCAD work but i will be using it for gaming as well. the reason i wanted this board was because of the built in Bluetooth feature but then i guess i can just pick up some cheap bluetooth wireless device.

Im already getting 8 GB of ram i dont think ill need to go more than that but then again i might, idk. lol

i thought the PSU was going to be over kill but i didnt know what wattage i needed so i went with a well above what was recomended.

Edit: i knocked it down to a 800 Watt power supply. same type basic, still coolermaster.
