Default New a few helps for my first build.

hey guys,
I am a new PC builder in China. I recently got some stuff and I am thinking about putting them together.

Video Card: Colorful GTX 780 CH-3GD5 863、6008Mhz 3G/384 GDDR5 PCI-E3.0

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I74770K

SSD: sumsung 840 250G

Motherboard: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

What kind of power supply should I use? and I got all these stuff in China and I'm moving to Vancouver, anything I should worry about?(difference in voltage etc.) And I have a GTX 660 TI, can I assemble them together as SLI?

Thank you very much!

You need a Z87 board for your 4770k

Or you could buy any other LGA 1150 socket motherboard.

When are you moving to Vancouver? If it's soon, don't bother buying in China because you won't save any money and it will be heavy as hell to carry. Are you here to study or moving permanently? If you're here to study, I would say buy something like an ITX small box so you can ship it back easily. Don't worry about the voltage because most PSU should come with a switch in the back to switch between 110 and 220, we run 110 here.

Thanks, Im moving in September for study. My friend has a store in Beijing kind of like NCIX and he will give all these stuff to me for free as gifts. Thats why I need to carry it all the way from China to Vancouver. Do you know that kind of power supply do I need?
