Need your help with Gaming PC Build!

Hi guys,

This is a build that I put together for a new gaming PC:

MoBo: ASRock 970 Pro 3 AM3+ Socket
CPU: AMD FX 8350 4.00 GHz x8 BLACK EDITION
GPU: Gainward 3072 MB GTX 780 Ti ACTIVE
RAM: Kingston HyperX Beast 8GB (2x4GB) 1600 Mhz
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB 3,5"
DRIVE: ASUS DVD-RW x24F1ST
CASE: CM Storm Enforcer w/ Side Panel Window

So, now comes the point where i need your help;

1. Would all the components that I have paired till now work together correctly? Any risks of bottlenecking? Will the GPU and everything fit into the case?

2. Considering that I have 160€ budget left, I would aprecciate if you could recommend me:
-> CPU Cooler (I'm not a big fan of water cooling btw, so would definitely prefer a really strong air-cooler unless w.c. is absolutely neccesary).
-> PSU with a wattage that isn't either too short or too excessive for this build, and that comes with the neccesary aditional power connections for the GTX 780 Ti.

Thanks in advance for your help! :D

Thanks for the quick answer! I just want to make sure: will that cooler fit without trouble into that case? Are 650W enough?

And you also forgot to answer: will there be any bottlenecking issues with my build by pairing that motherboard, CPU and GPU?

I say it all the time, it takes a pretty weak CPU to bottleneck a single GPU. The 8350 is a beast of a CPU, and can easily handle a pair of 780 Tis in SLI with no bottleneck.

650w is more than enough. That build will top out at a max of 400w under peak load, and that XFX PSU has plenty of amps on the +12v rail, and is built by SeaSonic.

That case will fit the cooler just fine. It's a beast of a cooler though lol
