You've got a fair number off issues here - the two most noticeable to me are that an i7 is going to give you pretty much no benefit over an i5 for gaming (they overclock and perform pretty much exactly the same) and that DDR 4 and 5 RAM doesn't exist. xP (You're thinking of Gddr ram which is graphics card ram.) You also really only need a 650w PSU - any 850w recommendation you see is based on the assumption that you're going to be buying a really cruddy one.

Best solution
