If you aren't going to overclock, you don't need the aftermarket CPU cooler or the K-version of the i5-2500. You can also go with a Samsung HDD to save some money. You may also want to look into a Modular PSU to cut down on clutter, but that is personal preference. You would also be better off with a 560, since it is basically the same price. Other than that, looks good.

Thank you for the help. Wanting to to keep options open and for possible future use, the current cost is alright with me, so unless the cooler and CPU are bad/wrong I'd think ill stay with them.

The GPU i haven't found a specific "best" option for me, so i sort of went with one with good ratings only. If there is a better choice ill check it out, thank you.

Nothing wrong with having additional cooling and the ability to OC in the future if you want to Smile

I have the GTX 460 you are looking at and it has been a great card for me. Runs quiet due to the unique cooling and has been able to max most my games at 1920x1080.

750W PSU is quite overkill for the build to be honest. I would go for something around 600W, but that's just me.

If he wants it upgrade-able for the future, though, and wants to perhaps throw another GPU in there then he will be glad he has the extra power.

Even still, 600W is good for two high end cards generally

Newegg's PSU Calculator disagrees with you.

I just always use the tool that was recommended on this website and he could use two 460s with room to breathe. He could even use two 6870s with room to breathe.

Of course Newegg wants to sell more expensive power supplies. I go on Anandtech and look at the bench. Go to the maximum power consumption under Furmark, and that's the absolute worst case scenario. Their test system already includes an overclocked 130W CPU. Add about 100W-200W over that for headroom, and you're good.
