  1. Lets see 2x4GB 1600mhz ram is enough imo. If u dont go CF/SLI change that card for a 970chipset mobo(example: m5a97 evo r2.0).
    Corsair CX psu is not good. Better to pick Antec,SeaSonic,XfX from this list (top 3 tiers) within a range of 600-650-700W. http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx
    May u can change that cooler for a Phanteks one.

    Yeah now i see, but Mhz in not the only thing to check. CL11 is very high and u wont use that 2133Mhz imo.
    Better to get a ram with cl9/1600Mhz..still a better buy
