    You'll have no problems with overclocking with that PSU. It has more power than you'll need, even when OCing.

    I know it's overkill, but I got it so that I can SLI in the future and I know it's still overkill. The thing is, I was going to get the 850W version so that I would have headroom for SLI and OCing, but the 1000W costs only 2€ more.

    Yes, it's really good. XFX PSUs are made by Seasonic, which is one of the best PSU manufacturers in the world.

    On a completely different note: If you are not editing videos/rendering, you don't need more than 8Gb of RAM.

    That is the list of all compatible RAM, and this can be found on it. It is as fast as your original choice, but it has a smaller latency, which means that it will be faster.

    That's actually two 2 GB sticks, and it's pretty expensive too: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Kingston-HyperX-Grey-Series-4GB-2-x-2GB-DDR3-SDRAM-2133-240-Pin-Desktop-Memory-Model/15747235

    It's faster, but it really doesn't matter; You won't see the difference while gaming.
