So ya, I decided I would ask you guys some advice especially concerning my power supply. I dont know if 850 is too much or not enough, and I have no idea what brand to go with. Corsair just seemed to be overall appreciated by gamers. Also, I dont know much about motherboard and so I dont really know if my pick is a good one or if I should change it.
PS.: I dont have a tight budget and I wouldnt mind upgrading here and there but only if necessary.
Its okay, doesn't really look too nice. I (personally) prefer a completely closed case with no light and only vents for cooling. I think that the lights on the computer are completely unneeded but that's just me.
2600K is definitely wonderful and will give you a pleasant experience in just about any work on your computer. I imagine that you are going to use this computer for tasks other then gaming, and photo and video work will do just fine on this. You can, if needed to lower price, get a lower grade processor.
Good job choosing the silent fan, I agree.
You will be just fine with this.
This is probably the most important part of a gaming PC. Your choice, the 6970, is good, but I want to bring up other things to consider. What games will you be playing? Check out benchmarks for those games for your graphics card. How long are you going to use this computer? The newest and baddest game for pc (in terms of graphics) is BF3. You will be able to do High/Ultra settings depending on your screen resolution. In the next year, you will probably only get to High range on the most demanding games. Every year this will decrease. (Obviously) It is a good thing that you can Crossfire with cards. I think that the 6970 is a very good decision for a card for the following reasons. One, it is currently a great card. Two, it will be a fabulous card when Crossfired when you want to upgrade it (maybe in 1.5 years or so)
Very, very nice choice. You have USB3, and tons of features that you may use.
It's 80PLUS so your good there, and it will go with ur components.
Primary Hard Drive:
Since price is not an issue, its fine, but 40GB of a SSD is good enough.
Data Hard Drive:
You may want to upgrade to a faster and bigger one. 1.5TB and faster will do you good.
