Not familiar with the PSU, but 650 should be sufficient, no idea what DRAM it is, but if it's 1600 or 1866 and voltage of 1.6 or 1.65, suggest looking for a 1.5 set - otherwise looks good - Do you already have an OS?

I would suggest this build instead for the budget. The SR-71 Blackbird's rig is good but a 7970 is better performing. Just go for this build and whenever you feel like overclocking just drop in a 60 dollar CPU Cooler and you are good to go. This is a better build than the SR-71 Blackbird's one, though I rarely say this line. He is an awesome guy but I don't know what happened him this time..

Anyways here is the rig :

Now that is an awesome build. Just change the case with a Fractal Design Core 1000 which is better and 10 dollars cheaper and keep everything else the same. This is really a beast. Nice one man..

The 7970 is on par with the 770. The difference is not that much.

+1 for the SSD
-1 for the 760

The Intel one you suggested was better in my opinion. It did not had SSD but was hell lot powerful.

Sidenote : Aren't we confusing the OP by giving him way too many options.

@Orignal Poster : Do you Overclock? If we know that we can suggest something exactly for your needs.

Sorry.. didn't noticed that the games he included are not that graphics intensive. And seeing MineCraft there one thing is certain that the world load times with SSD's would be awesome quick, so yeah this looks like a well balanced build.

Also more threads (8) would help him for streaming while recording without affecting the performance of the games, so this looks a good build indeed. I am sorry if I interrupted much. I did not meant to do so.

Surely, go for this build. It is very good for the price. Also, you should overclock it to 4.0-4.2 Ghz to get the best performance possible (with that CPU cooler 4.2 is enough)
