You could get a higher than required PSU just in case you intend to SLi that GTX560 Ti in the future. Either the Seasonic M12II 620W or the XFX 650W will work very well.

Newegg.com - SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Newegg.com - XFX P1-650X-CAH9 650W ATX12V v2.2 / ESP12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

I'm not very particular about DVD drives and I usually pick any from LiteOn or LG. If you have some extra money left you could throw in a SSD into the build. You can choose a smaller 60GB SSD if you don't feel like splurging on a 120GB version.

Newegg.com - Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

To put it in layman's term, a SSD = HDD >9000 :haha:

A SSD is very fast compared to a HDD. The only drawback is that the cost/GB is much higher as it is relatively new to the consumer market compared to HDD. With it you can set it as your primary drive and run your OS on it. SSD will make everything load quicker. Check out some videos on Youtube on how fast these things are compared to a HDD.

ohh and btw,
if u could give a score between 1 and 10 for my build, what would it be?

Think about also getting a CPU Cooler like the Coolermaster Hyper 212 plus.

As for a PSU I suggest getting the Silverstone Strider Gold 750W.

earthwatts 500 and up for psu,seasonic made=good stuff. corsair,good too.

8/10 because 560 instead of 6950 and tt vs haf 912

not much to recommend for dvd drives. Just pick one that matches your case's color and check that it is not reviewed terribly.

I have a similar build but used a coolermaster 912 case. I used the following:


PSU - Corsair HX Series CMPSU-650HX 650W 119.99
DVD - Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS $19.99
although newegg has one of these on sale for $22
LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 24X DVD Writer

also used one of these to get some extra USB ports to the front of the case
