Need Help_71

Mar 31, 2012
Hi, the following is my build for a gaming PC. Any suggestions on improving the build for the same price would be appreciated. My main concern is the PSU. Is it too powerful or do I need a bigger one to support this build? Note: I am not going to SLI just maybe slightly overclock my CPU. Thank You :) . The following is my build.

Intel i5 2500k Sandy Bridge (I am aware of the ivy bridge processors but am using this CPU for an estimate)
Prolimatech PRO-MGH-C CPU cooler
Asrock z77 Extreme 4 - MOBO
G.Skill Ares Series 8GB - RAM
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB - HDD
GTX 680 - GPU
NZXT Phantom Full Tower Case - Case
Asus - BC12B1ST - CD drive

**PSU - 750W ATX12V Power Supply**
Would also like to know if the above supply unit has an input of 240V or 120V. If not pleaseee can you suggest one for me keeping the build in mind? Thank you once more!

This is being prebuilt for you?

Theres no brand name on that PSU the wattage is fine but if oits a no name or a poor name brand PSU it likely doesnt run at that wattage or have decent amperage on the 12V rails

On a side note I think that CPU cooler is pointless and expensive. Get a CM 212 Evo
Your CPU cooler choice does not come with a fan. You'll need to grab a fan too.
Or two fans, depending on how aggressive you want to get with overclocking.
Picked them out already?

It will fit into that NZXT Phantom case without a problem.
