especially if you are doing crossfire. otherwise everything else is great and the case problem is really more of a personal thing that you need to decide for yourself

Dont need anywhere near an 850w PSU for that build. Drop it to a 550-600 and buy a better single video card.

He is doing crossfire, but i also a agree with getting a much better single card over doing crossfire. crossfire is only a good choice when you have already bought one card, and it has come to a time that you need extra performance, and adding a second card becomes a cheaper option

personally i would keep the 850 watt psu, but i'd buy either a gtx 780 or a r9-290 with an aftermarket cooler

you will be fine if you drop down your psu to 750w and i would say go for the nzxt case other then that your build looks great!

for a gpu, considering your budget would be $400 for a gpu, i'd suggest either a gtx 770, or if you can find one at a decent price, the 280x is great as well (or if you can find a r9-290 for a good price, jump on that)
