Default New PC

Hey

Its to upgrade my pc and I need some help. I am doing my homework to get the best parts for the best performance. These are the following parts I want to get, and I need some advice if they will be the sufficent or what should I swap out ect.

CPU: Intel Core i5 760 Quad - 2.8Ghz
Motherboard: Im still deciding between the
Asus P7P55D-E Evo or the
Intel "Extreme Series" Kingsburg P55
Graphics Card: Im looking at the Asus GTX460 1GB
Memory: 2x 2GB Trancend DDR-3 1600 - im still unsure about my memory
I have a 500W Odin powersupply - will this be big enough to run all of the components

I wanted to get the thoughts and suggestions before I just randomly buy a pc and parts

Thanx in advance

Wait bong hit!.......Ok ready, lets see what you got so far...hmm not bad.

CPU good.
Mobo I'll go with the Asus.
GPU good.
Here is very good Ram- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145249
The PSU you got should power everything, but I would in invest in something like 600w or higher.Here... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341017

Hope this helps.GL

BTW i recieved another quote from a company quoting me on the
Asus P7P55D-E Pro

I cant seem to find the difference between the pro and the evo.
Is there a difference or is it just the name?

The pro verison has SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 and the EVO doesnt, thats about it.The pro would be more future proof with the SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0
