I'm building a gaming pc and my budget is a little over $1000.
here are the components:
Intel Core™ i5-3570
ASUS P8Z77-V LK, LGA1155, Intel® Z77
CORSAIR 8GB (2 x 4GB
EVGA GeForce® GTX 660 SuperClocked 1046MHz
WESTERN DIGITAL 1TB WD Caviar® Black
NZXT Guardian 921 RB Black Mid-Tower Case
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M2 720W Power Supply

I need help making some adjustments because I'm not going to overclock anything. I don't even know how to use the bios so I need a cheaper motherboard that can still support my components and also recommendations for a better graphics card within the price range of the gtx 660 and a power supply that doesn't die quickly.
thanks.

I would get a Core i5-4670 and a Z87 board. And you can tone the PSU down to 600W. If you want something quality, Seasonic or Corsair will work.

It's not exactly that much better, but I only suggest such to keep up to date.

Yes, that motherboard is compatible with the 1155. To be frank, I feel that most motherboards are the same feature-wise up until a certain price point, and then they start adding features to differentiate themselves. As long as you buy from ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte, or MSI, you'll be fine.

To bad we can't give 'Rep' on this site, because I would have given you some for this post. Although I prefer the 3570 the 4670 is also an excellent choice.
