I need advice and opinions on this high end mid-range gaming build (about 1.2k) Approximate Purchase Date: Tomorrow Budget Range: 1k-1.2k System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com Country of Origin: US Overclocking: Yes SLI or Crossfire: Yes (In Future) Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 (This is max resolution of the monitor i listed in this build) Additional Comments: I would like to have a quiet PC...Please review this build of mine. This is my 1st Gaming PC rig and it took me countless hours of research to finally reach this stage.

I hope this build is the best bang for my buck in the $1.1k range... Well, I'll let you guys decide
Last Thoughts: Picked 850W for my Power Supply because I thought that not only was it a great bang for my buck, but the PSU had mostly top rated reviews. This PSU also has 7 year limited warranty, which is awesome! I also foresee myself upgrading my video card or CPU in 3 or 4 years so therefore PSU would be a long-term benefit.
Nice build but you really don't need 850W. Its a good deal especially with the promo and rebate but you really could do with a 750W just fine and save money. Power consumption is really going down across the boards for CPUs and GPUs. They aren't going to change that either.
EVGA isn't the best when it comes to cooling by any means but they have excellent tech support and if you need an RMA they won't BS about it. You can find much better cases for $30 more that have USB3 and are just better to look at inside and out. Corsair is making really nice cases at an affordable range. Carbide series they call it as the Obsidian is more enthusiast priced.
