I would get an 7850 and OC that baby to 1100mhz or higher, then you can match/beat the stock 7870

For a PSU with this build I would get an corsair CX600W on a budget or a XFX 550W if you have $10 more to spare

I would go with a cheaper Motherbaord like the ASUS M5A97 R2.0, same specs really but much cheaper

For ram just get an 1600mhz 2x4gb kit, cheapest one around right now is Kingston blu and they are pretty good quality

For a cooler get and CM 212 EVO, great cooler for it's price

***Grab the mobo right now off newegg, and get 8 gigs ram free!!

Also, for psu, get antec, xfx, corsair, at 500w or above (id go 500 for single card or 750 if you plan on sli/crossfire). 7850 is good, if you plan on a multi monitor setup, grab at least a 7870 xt(a slower 79xx series)

LISTEN TO ME!!! I know im double posting, but you could save 50 bucks right now if you stuck with the original mobo. Take his advice for the rest.

That is a good choice but I am wary of single channel configs, I would still grab another 8gb stick to pair it with for 16gb total (or sell it and and let it fund your 2x4gb kit)
