  1. requirements of the Vapor-X 290 OC is for a 750W
  2. Ya. Everything is compatible. Just a suggestion, unless you are getting a good discount on the 750d might be a bit over kill but your choice. Everything is compatible :).

    The main thing I would change is the power supply. The Corsair CX & RM series of power supplies are problematic. They have only mediocre components.

    I would recommend a Seasonic, XFX, or a better Corsair power supply. The 850 watts is good. A 750m watt would work too.

  5. Apart from the power supply it is an great upgrade build list. What is your motherboard? If it is compatible, I would recommend some CL9 1866RAM or faster. Like these G. SKILL Snipers.

    G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR $83.99
