I am a little worried about the PSU. I am not sure why..

I have the operating system already.

I will be reusing a CD/DVD drive.

To make things easier on the community, please consider posting the item the link goes to so we don't have to click on each link to see what you're wanting.

Well, everything looks fine. But there are a few tweaks you can make. If you have the cash, the HIS H685F1GD Radeon HD 6850 1GB would be a better choice as it is much more powerful than a 5770 for about the same price after rebates. You also have two different RAM kits listed, I would go for the CORSAIR 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 which is a single stick of DDR3-1333 memory at a 4GB capacity, if you need more, get another stick. OCZ is usually fairly good with PSU's, though they do have problems fulfilling rebates. If this is a gaming PC, you may find a quad core CPU more cost effective since almost no game uses more than four cores. If you are encoding, then the six core CPU is much more worthwhile.

Why do you want 6GB of RAM, no more, no less?

Get a matched set of 2X2gig sticks now, and upgrade later to 8gigs total if you feel the need.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

You could use 8GB if you are running games in 64-bit or manipulating large amounts of data. The single 4GB stick I suggested would work.

The benefit of using the single stick of RAM is that you can later upgrade to larger RAM amounts since not all slots are in use.

so do final decision is buy 2 of the single sticks. correct?

EDIT:

I just stumbled upon AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz. Its so much cheaper than AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz. Im still not too sure what a difference 6 cores will make. so i am now stuck.

Six cores will not help much with gaming since most newer games are just starting to take advantage of four cores. Video and photo editing may take advantage, as will any encoding programs, if they are designed to do so. If you are doing video editing quite a bit, you may want to consider going for the six core. You will also be able to use 4GB or more of RAM if the programs you use for editing have a 64-bit version.
