Default My First Build(i just learned how like an hour ago)

Hi, I am very new to building computers and I just wanted to know someone’s opinion on my build to see if it even works or I could optimize it more for my gaming needs.
Processor: Intel Core i7 – 2600K Sandy Bridge
Motherboard: BiostarTPG 7XE (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6 gb/s
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 4 GB(2 x 2GB) 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM
Graphics Card: PNY GeForce GTX 560 ti
Hard Drive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM
Optical Drive: LITE-ON IDE DVD-ROM drive
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 380B 380W ATX 12V Plus Bronze Certified
Case: SunBeam Transformer Black Steel ATX Full Tower
Also I am trying to keep my build close to 1k unless you can get the same performance cheaper

I''d suggest a 500 watt unit for your build. seasonic is one of the best in the psu market right now. but once you overclock that cpu and gpu, you'll certainly be drawing around 300 watts if not more.

Yeah, definitely 500-650. If it was me I would get a 650W. You never know what you're doing to add to it
