Hi alexoukas-dropdead,

The main and only difference is a 100MHz higher boost for the i5 8500.
So don't think too much, that represents 3% perfomance difference...

Take the one with rebate if you have the chance.

Don't buy a Z370 motherboard with a locked processor (non K one), go for a B or H chipset depending on your needs (ram slot/SATA port number, I/O)
With the money you saved on the Mobo, try to take a 250Go SSD, 120Go will be full really, really quickly.

What Corsair PSU have you choosen? if it's a VS one, change that. It's not meant to go in a gaming build.

That's ok, nor problem.

About the PSU, for your build, it's "OK", because you will not pull a tremendous amount of power but tension and current are not rock stable.
If you already have it, use it, but i think it should be good to change it as soon as you can.
A good PSU last for several builds ;)
