Hi folks. I am upgrading my system, but i need some advice. I am planning on upgrading to AsRock Z87-Extreme4 Mobo + Intel I5-4670K CPU. But I am unsure as to what PSU / Ram would be compatible. All-so i am planning on crossfiring my MSI 7870 OC ED. I know i should get a gtx 770 instead of a second GPU due to the crossfire microshuttering issues, but that simply isn't in my budget. In addition it seems AMD is working on some new frame-pacing drivers in order to fix, or at-least improve microshuttering. So anyway. . What PSU/Ram should i get? (I would prefer only to get 8GB of ram due to it being relatively cheap). Thanks in advance!

Edit: Speaking of microshuttering issues with crossfire. Do you guys think it would even be worth getting a second 7870 until we find out if the new frame-pacing drivers actually fix it?

One thing you could do is try to sell your current graphics card... that is what I'm doing at the moment and it's actually going quite well
