You're not going to need a 750W PSU either. You can go like...half that.

*saves list* Thanks, of course I won't be able to buy these parts until this christmas or next year. Having never really ordered anything online, what kind of payment options does newegg use besides paypal? I don't have a credit card, debit card, or anything.

If you can't order them until christmas or next year, come back when you can order them. The value of parts shifts very quickly. There could be a completely different and much better set of options for you at that time.
Plus, that GPU/PSU combo is pretty bad.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

Really? How so? I thought the corsair psus were supposed to be good quality and 600w gives him some headroom to upgrade in the future.

And yeah, if you're not ordering till Christmas just come back then, the pc market changes very quickly

Even if you put the entire discount onto the PSU, 75 dollars is a bit high for a non modular 600w PSU.

Not sure if Corsair GS is all that great, but it doesn't look like one of their SeaSonic lines, and for $90, I'd kind of expect more than flat 80+ cert on a 600w PSU. The combo deal is only $15 off, too, so it's actually cheaper to get the 460v2 and that PSU separately than to go for the combo deal.

PSU prices sure seem high as of late. o 0
Anyway, http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093 is a pretty good value. 520w, modular, $62.
