Are all these parts compatible and/or good? Opinions?

I'm buying these parts in September for pretty much only gaming and want some opinions on what's good and what's not.

Case: NZXT Phantom 530 White
CPU: i7 4670k
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken x40
Motherboard: ASRock Extreme 4
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2x4gb)
Optical Drive: Lite-On IHAS324
PSU: FSP Aurum 650W 80 PLUS Gold
Monitor: ASUS VE248H
Video Card: EVGA GTX 780 ACX

Please tell me what you think and what kind of FPS i'll be looking at for games like Crysis 3 and Arma 3. Thanks :D

  1. OS? Looks like a good build, should be happy with it ;)
  2. Good build, you should consider adding an SSD for good measure. I would go for 750W 80+ Gold if you plan on SLI later, if not, get a PSU from Corsair, EVGA(Getting better now), Rosewill, XFX, Seasonic...

    You would maxed out all games today at 1080p. Most games would be averaging around 60+ fps while Crysis 3 is around 45. This is from multiple reviews and from my own 780.

    I don't wanna get SSD as it only increases program loading and how fast u load stuff up which I don't care about if it doesn't increase fps and is another $100-$150
    I'm not really looking to go SLI and plus i'm already streaching my budjet as is so getting a better quality PSU is not really a good idea for me. Thanks man for the help :D
  5. No problem, let us know how the build goes ;)

    Is this a good PSU?

    Love Silverstone, SeaSonic is my favorite, but I jump around depending on the build, think that one is rated Silver, so plenty of power
