  1. get an SSD for the boot drive... should be OK for most stuff...

    get a cooler for it, not OEM
  2. 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?

  5. OCZ isn't great. Stick with Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
  6. corsair cx600?
  7. The xfx550 would be preferable.
  8. Not available where I'm buying...
  9. Then cx600 will be fine then.
  10. Oooh i did notice the Antec High Current Gamer 520WATT for like €5 more, should i take that one?
