Gpu: gigabyte nvidia gtx 460 768mb
Psu:corsair 650W


Looking to upgrade gpu/ram and psu since i dont think 650W will handle oc cpu and a beastly card.

Ram:Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB DDR3-2133MHz CL9 2x4 83Euros

850W will pretty much cover anything, get the cheapest one you could find
Then i'd go with the i7 4790k
And the GTX 770

I dont know much about euro pricing with computer components but 12gb ram is enough if its just for gaming so you could use that spare money on a better gpu. Not too good with power supplies but both gtx 870 and 880 are right around the corner they may be revealed by next month and either one is definitely a good buy if it fits your budget.

Your ram should be 8gb or 16gb , why do you have 12 , you want matching pairs for Dual Channel mode.
