You dont need the 650 watt psu . The Asrock board cant crossfire or sli so all you need for the 7850 is 500 watts

That could save you enough to get a better board like the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 and a case with front USB3 ports like the Antec One gamer , Or cm 431

Is this better:

OCZ CoreXStream 500WATT

Asus M5A97 R2.0,sAM3+

Cooler Master Elite 431 PLUS with Window?

OCZ isn't great. Stick with Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
