  1. Look here:

    The Corsair 500R is superior and is cheaper .... it aslo has a total of $67 off in combo w/ 850w H series PSU ... 1200 is way overkill

    I don't see what the formula is doing for you with the rest of the selected parts and the E-ATX Mobo I don't think fits in the 1100.

    I'd use better memory ....

  2. so if i used a 850 watt for these components it would work better? Also i would like to know if all these parts are compatible with one another? For example, the motherboard with the ram, video card ect.
  3. Yes and yes

    Tho, Id use twin 670's in SLI and an 840 pro SSD for more performance.....850 watter plenty for that

    Also if a gaming rig, I d drop to the 3570k and save a few bucks
