What do you think about my rig?

I'm going to build a PC. Is the PSU strong enough?

Parts that do effect performance

    A strong fan can make or break your CPU's overclocking potential - it absolutely affects performance.

    That build looks pretty good to begin with, but you're spending about $250 needlessly and using a discontinued GPU, put that $250 in getting the best GPU you can get for the money. These would be my suggestions:

    The first is to drop the 2600K to the 2500K and invest that difference in upgrading your GPU to a Radeon 7870:

    You could also drop the HAF X to a Corsair Carbide 400R and invest that difference + the 2500K in upgrading your GPU to a 7950 or 680.

    680: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130768

    And then ditch the Vengeance RAM - the tall heat sinks will not be good if you're trying to install a Hyper 212 - this would be a better choice instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226095
  3. Thanks for the advice. The Radeon 6950 is ranked as the 10th best GPU. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+HD+6950
