    Everything looks good. However, I would suggest the HAF 922, saves you 50$, and is still very big. I have mostly your whole build, it is good.

    You probably don't need 850, I have a AX650 and can run everything fine oc'ed. I would probably get a 1TB HDD just cause, but if 500gb is all you're going to need, then hey, get it. Also, I think this is personal preference, but I like the EVO better than the plus, due to the design of the bottom.
  2. Awesome thank you. Ill look into the 922 guess I missed it, I was a bit worried as this is my first time selecting compnents and have been scouring the web to see what seemed to work well together. I apreciate the reply gave me some peace of mind.
  3. You could also get another 6850.. :)
  4. Yeah will for sure figured Id wait for awhile, its got plenty for Wow ad Diablo 3 I think. Will get a newer one later on have to build two of these for me and my wife so staying as cheap as a I can.
  5. Yeah, Diablo 3 isn't very GPU-intensive, your 6850 will be fine.
