Hello. I am building a new rig for gaming/video rendering/general use. These are the specs I've picked out:
Intel i7-3770K
Nvidia GeForce GTX 660
Intel BOXDH77 Mobo
G.Skill 8GB RAM

I am just wondering if this power supply: http://
is going to be good enough for that. If not, which power supply should I get?
 
Soo you are getting all those nice parts and cheaping out on the part that needs to power them? A good power supply will last you through many upgrades and I have always said its wise to plan for more. This is a really nice PSU that will run any system with any single video card you want to throw at it. It's $35 instant saving and has a $15 code making it $75. However, you are getting very good quality.

Also, do I am not sure what motherboard you listed. That doesn't seem to be a model of H77 I could find. Also, if you are getting a "K" model CPU you will want Z77 motherboard for overclocking. Otherwise just get a non-K CPU and save a few bucks.
 

Do all those parts come in a kit? If so link us? Typically I see kits with that one part they are trying to get rid of because no one wants it. Just curious on this.

ooo, you generally never want to get a case with a built in power supply. they are usually very poor quality, and have a higher failure rate. Which could compromise anything you have hooked up to it. If you let us know you full budget. We would be happy to give you some recommendations on parts.

I agree with tenaciousk. You should put up a new thread asking for help selecting parts for your new build. Use the format described in the "*How to Ask for New Build or Upgrade Advice*" sticky to get the best responses. I'm not impressed with that combo. The HD reviews are so-so and the RAM isn't even dual channel. We could do better...

My full budget is $900-$1000, but that is including monitor price. I am also planning on getting an SSD to install my OS on. However, the price of the SSD is not included in this budget as my friend said he'd buy me one. I already have a cd drive to put in it as well I was planning on buying the barebone kit I sent you the link for, the core i7, the nvidia gtx 660, the intel BOXDH77KC and the monitor. P.S. I'm pretty sure that is all I need, but let me know if I'm missing something.
