2nd Build - Critique Please

Hello!

I just need everyone's opinion on a build that I'm planning to do for BF3, Skyrim, D3 etc. I built a computer back in 2006 but I've been out of the technological loop in terms of hardware for the past few years.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265
CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072 (Should I get an aftermarket cooler for this? if so pls recommend me one)
PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088
Case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119196
HDD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533
Video Card: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130613
Ram: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233143
DVD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204

Thanks guys! Also just wondering if the PSU will be able to handle my video card? Also, maybe should I get a bigger PSU incase I plan to go SLI in the future? Will my case be large enough to fit the video card?

Appreciate the help.

  1. your psu imo, cant handle sli setup.
    nice choises overall but 16 gb, dont you think its a bit overkill.
    if its just for bragging its fine but 8gb will do the job perfectly.
    go for atleast a 850w psu for furureprofing
  2. Thanks for your help manu. I will decide to go with 8GB, I didn't know at the time 16GB was pointless. Also for the PSU is this a good choice http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015 ? And will this be ok ram? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233180
  3. yes the 850 should do the job without issue.

    Ram looks ok

    just looking at ur mobo, i know it says PCI-Express 3.0

    but it als says it will only do 1@x16 and as soon as you drop in a 2nd card it will do (1 x16 and 1 x8)

    im sure there are boards out there that will do 2 cards at x16

    ASRock has a page showing memory modules that have been tested with your mobo. The RAM you selected does not appear on that list. This does not mean it won't work, but why not get RAM you know will?
