  1. Your graphics card is kinda overkill for that resoloution. Id would go with a 760 and save the money
  2. Best answer
    I also wouldnt trust that power supply the only brands that i would recommend would be xfx seasonic corsair or antec otherwise you risk frying your hardware or just not having the wattage to even run it.
  3. Your psu is garbage. PCpartpicker seems to be down at the moment so I got this one from one of your suppliers
    . Corsair TX650

    But i need the GPU to render good quality animation graphics.
    3D blender can use my GPU and render really fast.

    Okay I changed the PSU. But I don't think I'd want to change my graphics card because the better the card the better my 3D animations can be rendered. 3D Blender only uses nvidia card's GPU and it can render really fast :D
  6. Okay I think I'm set. This is my computer! Hope my first build goes well! :x
