Get a Seasonic or XFX PSU in the 550 to 650 watt range.

I'd probably get a Z77 motherboard from Asus or Gigabyte in the 150 to 200 dollar price range, not the most expensive models, that had the features I needed. I wouldn't agonize over the motherboard details. Just hope it is problem free and hoep you never have to deal with manufacturer support.

Are you locked into that particular SSD, rather than Samsung, Intel, or Crucial?

I have had very good luck with Coolermaster PSU's myself, and I have a Corsair SSD in my laptop and OCZ SSD in my PC, both of which have been running well for over a year now.

I really envy you putting together a new system. Mine is only a year old yet, so it will be a few years before I need to upgrade. Enjoy!!!

Don't do this. The X79 mobo is 2011 socket type and not compatible with the 3770k
