Hey guys, I'm planning on building a desktop. I have picked out the following components and I'm mainly making sure that they are compatible and what not. If you have alternate suggestions, please tell me why. Don't bother saying that I should buy a ati 58xx, nvidia 4xx, it's not in my budget. Same goes with SSD and what not, if you have alternate suggestions, don't increase the price too much unless you have really good reason. Thanks.

mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3
CPU: Intel i5 750
GPU: ATI XFX 5770
RAM: 4gb ddr3
PSU: Corsair 650 Watt
Hard Drive: Western Digital 500gb Caviar Black
Case: Cooler Master Centurion 590
Optical Drive: Asus DVD drive

Before looking at the price on that power supply, I might have said it is a little overkill for what you will be powering with it, but seeing the price of it, I'd probably say to just go with it.



None.

Interested in what DDR3 kit you're going to be using, but generally speaking you picked good parts and made a balanced build. Props.

Yeah, I've already bought this actually, at the moment it is the same price as the 450w ones, so why not.

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

I use G.SKILL 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600 in mine, and they're great.

DevliNs are nice but the latency is a little high.

Try these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231276

Edit: Depending on how much you want to pay, these are amazing: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231321
1600 freq, latency of 7, and they use extremely low voltage. Low voltage is very important with DDR3. And they're still like what? 123$ shipped?
