quote aaron6581230Thank you! I got everything assembled already except for the graphics card, it's coming today and I will finish everything probably. Great advice!If you can get an i5 2400 or 2500 for cheaper, definitely go with that instead.
Do not go for that power supply. The eXtreme series isn't exactly known for providing the rated power. If you can, look for a Seasonic, XFX, or Corsair, even if it's lower wattage for the same price. Well worth it in the long run. Your system won't pull too much power anyway. You'll need a good quality 500W-550W at most for a single card (to keep some headroom for upgrades), and maybe a 650W-700W if you plan on going crossfire in the future.
Otherwise, pick up a Caviar Blue instead of Black if you can find it significantly cheaper. Difference in performance is not noticeable at all.
For the case, pick up the Cooler Master HAF 912 instead (it's around the same price) and then pick up a 200mm megaflow fan to put in the front. The included 2 fans, install them on the top. That should give you ample cooling if needed. You definitely do not want to buy a sickleflow if you're not picking up a fan controller. They run pretty loud.
You won't need to purchase additional wires. Everything should work together fine
