I'm thinking of purchasing this but i would like some input from you guys to see if you would change anything or see something that would be cheaper and gives the same performance.

Also i have no power supply yet because im really not sure which one to get.

any help will be appreciated.

Don't get the SuperClocked version. You can overclock it yourself, very simple.

12GB RAM is way overkill. Even for gaming, it is way too much. Get this: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Get a WD Caviar 500GB Black. It will give you so much more performance.

Look at getting a Corsair TX650 V2 for your PSU.

agreed 12gb is way overkill.
as for the hard drive you could get a 1gb samsung spinpoint, double the memory same price also on Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!. although the seek times arent as quick
