Alright so up the dosage on the power . 750W going to be okay for it? I think I'm sticking with the motherboard because someone told me it's really really nice but a bit expensive. He said if I can afford it I should get it. Any thoughts on the CPU? Good/bad/moderate?

thats overkill (i'm talking about if u get a quality one...) a good 500 or 600 watt is more than enough.. Corsair 520 seems fine for ur system
