Radeon 7850 2Gb version you may need a new PSU depending how much power is on the 12V rail on your current one.

OMG. PC BUILDING! YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG :/  that power house of a computer and you dare insult it with that crappy graphics card and crappier power supply? We should have you lynched!! lol jk but for Gods sake save that computer by getting a better power supply. A generic no name one isn't going to do you any good trust me i'm saving up for a psu myself and i'm afraid to even turn on my computer right now! Don't forget the graphics card. I'd get a GTX670 with a corsair 550w Power supply unit if i was you

I want to point out When I bought the psu I couldn't find higher and the. The man in the shop where i bought it said a 1250w wouldn't work with my mother board and remember and the graphic card I knew was wrong but I was going to but a deasant one And I forgot to :(  getting a 3gb Asus amd radeon and power supply is going to be corsair. For. One thing :)  thanks lads keep posting with me help yeno

your cooling is way over the top for the build unless your gonna be overclocking to 4.6ghz a cheaper solution will give you pretty much the same results for half the money. maybe 1-3'c less.
take that money saved and put it into a better gfx card and psu.
also the motherboard is overkill if your just gonna have 1 gfx card then get a board with 1 pci-e x16 slot.
again put the money saved into the gfx or psu.
a good quality 650w psu will be more than enough.
gfx you should aim for hd 7870 as it gives the best bang for buck and will punish any nvidia card at the same price point.
buy cheaper but faster ram. amd cpus like 1866 ram best so see if you can find 4-8 gigs of it at cas9 muskin and kingston do some great deals.
yes 4-8 gigs. to play games you dont need more than 4 gigs for most games 8 gigs will allow you to load a few more textures and save a little loading time but not much else.

I might get this psu Corsair 850w gold pro series 80 plus gold modular , the gfx cards im getting is 2x asus ati radeon 7950 hd 900mhz 3gb pci-express 3.0hdmi top oc, and might get an SSD like this one samsung 250gb 840 series sata 6gb/s 2.5'' i think they will me ALOT any cheaper gfx that are 2-3 gb not nvidia because my last nvidia for some reason wasnt fast on gaming. THE 7870 sounds great but how much are they because i could not find them . Thanks lads yous are helping me so much

2 x 7950s is more than you need for a single monitor just get 1 first and see if you think you need another.
