    Hi, for gpu I would suggest r9 390 (Sapphire or Asus) in this price tag, or get the 980 if you can.
    You don't need 850W, good 750W is enough, I would suggest Evga Supernova 750W, if you want 850W go for Evga Supernova too, but 850W edition ... don't get Corsair ...
    For cooler I would get Corsair H110i over Noctua, but they are pretty the same quality

    Anyway that build is amazing ;)

    Thanks for the response Mr Hat! :)

    I would primarily be using this for work, creating and running multiple VM's in mini-lab way. Will also be gaming moderately in my free time. Will also be programming on this.
