  1. that seems like it will all be compatible
  2. Yeah, it all fits. Nice system. :)
  3. Best answer
    Yeah it's all compatible. You could use an 850w PSU for two 770 cards, but the PSU you selected is very nice and I won't discourage you from getting it. Since it's your first build, what's your storage situation looking like? Not sure what your needs are but I usually suggest a 250gb SSD for performance system drive and games and a couple HDDs in RAID-1 for data storage with redundancy.

    Very solid ideas here.

    Going to have a 1 terabyte internal hard drive and a 2 terabyte external hard drive

    That'll be fine, gaming fps isn't affected by storage performance anyway. But you would see boot times and loading times reduced significantly with an SSD. Are you going to try and squeeze some more out of the 8350 with an overclock? Your motherboard is a good one to OC with. Even if you aren't interested in OCing, you can get better temps and usually quieter with a low-cost CPU cooler. Easier to do it now than later.

    I do think I will OC my cpu but I dont think I need to get more fans my case comes with 3 180mm fans the CPU comes with a fan and my GPU come with 2 fans so 6 fans would that be enough?
  8. It's not the case fans - those are fine. If you are going to overclock the CPU, you will want a good CPU heatsink+fan (i.e. "CPU cooler") to keep the CPU at lower temps than the stock heatsink it comes with. The included heatsink with the 8350 is only "adequate" to cool the 8350 at stock clocks. If you use a better heatsink such as a CoolerMaster EVO or similar "tower"-style heatsink, your CPU will stay cooler under load even if you don't overclock. But if you want to overclock, you really have to get an aftermarket cpu cooler otherwise your cpu will overheat and crash at higher clocks.
  9. I like the build minus the RM Power supply.
  10. Switch the Power supply to this:
