I'm building a computer. I just want to know if for a budget of a little over $2000, is this good. I'm getting all my parts from Newegg.

Spoiler
Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 650D
HDD: Western Digital WD Black 1TB
GPU: EVGA GTX 780 Ti 3GB
PSU: Corsair AX860 860w 80 PLUS PLATINUM
RAM: G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB ( 2 x 8GB ) DDR3 2400
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770k Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150 Quad-Core
CPU Cooler: Hyper 212 EVO
Disc Drive: LG Black Blu-ray Drive
SSD: SAMSUNG 840 PRO 256GB
OS: Windows 8.1 - 64 bit - OEM ( Don't know if I should go with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. )


Total Cost + Shipping: $2,284.27

I'm kind of in a hurry so I can't post links ( But I might later if needed... ) but you can search all of these components up in Newegg. Thanks!

Thanks. Sweet build !
Re. OS: If you decide to go with W7 (and that is what I would do) I would suggest the professional version.
That's it from me; build that beauty and let 'er rock !!

Why not maximus VI Formula? Also I've read enough of these ( I'm buying my rig in January ) that the experts will say unless your planning to sli your graphics cards you won't need the 850W PSU.

This is true, you could probably get away with a 700 watt psu, but then if you decide to go SLI down the road you would need to buy ANOTHER psu. The math is simple: Two PSUs will cost more then one. The 860 will provide plenty of power for this system, enough headroom that you could add another card. Overclocking (Why? with this performance) with two cards might require more then 860watts, but with the 860 your could do some OCing with the single card setup.
The more powerful PSU will not have to work as hard, thus it will run cooler then the a smaller unit and perhaps last longer.

Windows 8.1 is the future. Battlefield 4 already runs better on Windows 8.1 than Windows 7.
The power supply unit is good but you don't really need 850 watts if you want to save some money:)

I just built a system today with that PSU, loving it but the cables are a bit short, I would recommend a H100i though, I got that for the build I built today and Im really impressed.
