Is my power supply good enough for my build? Any other suggestions? The parts to my build are listed here. Keep in mind this PC is for video editing. I have a budget of roughly $800 but it looks like I'm going to go up to $950. Thanks in advance.

    Will this have enough power to upgrade something later on? Maybe the graphics card?
  3. It will run a GTX 770.
  4. If you want a liitle extra power this will run any single card on the market.

  7. For the "any other suggestions":

    why the second ssd?

    I thought of something like the next and i'm not sure if amd is the best,that depends from what i read on what kind of video editing you're doing,but i assume you've explored that.

    The next case is already cheaper,but may be louder,
    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-case-one
    The cpu could be overclocked to 8350 levels and faster.(it does depend on the chip and motherboard how far you can go)
    Not all the peripherals are included.

    Just something to think about.
