For the RAM, I would recommend a G.SKill DDR3-1600 8GB set, which should run about 50-60 bucks from Newegg/Amazon. Also, I prefer the Coolermaster HAF 912 to save a few bucks.

For your PSU, it's hard to know what PSU to get from your info. We would need to know what GPU you have in the PC. Judging by you wanting to go economy, an 850 is probably way more than you need so you could save some money probably.

As for SSDs, I would recommend a Samsung 830/840 Pro series. Hope this helps.

I think the 850W PSU is overkill if you are only using 1 videocard. Step the psu down to a 650 watt version and use the price difference to put towards a better videocard.

This http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-hx750 is only 89.99 after the rebate and is more than enough to power a single GPU system with your specs

Thank you so much! Can you reccomend a good video card? I will likely be using a large monitor, bigger then 1680x1080:

Sorry, one more last thing. Would Crucil Ballistix 8gb ddr3 1866 RAM be good and compatible with all that? I will get more ram later but I'm overbudget so. Yeah xD
