Welcome to the forum! Are you asking if these are good components for a new build? the 1366 platform is on the way out, and you'd be better off going with an i5 2500K with an x79 mobo these days. The 850 watt corsair PSU would run this build.

To be sure, you can check on the PSU calculator link below.

I deleted your other thread because it was pretty much a duplicate of this one.

If you want us to help you, list what are you gonna do with the rig.

Since your buying new, i would not go for the 1366 platform. You would be better to buy cpu/mobo/ram used, as it is pretty easy to find on forums/ebay (the chips are alittle harder to find, they sell so fast!).

Or, if you're just gaming, go 1155. Cheaper and more FPS than the 1366. The 2500k is unbeatable at gaming!
