Ooh thanks Hiya! Everything looks perfect for being under $1000. Only question I have is does the AMD Radeon HD7850 beat the Nvidia GPUs? Since I hear mixed reviews on AMD Radeon to Nvidia

Yes, it does.

Ah okay thanks for the info. Also about overclocking would that be done through the bios or an alternate program like k10stats?

BIOS is always the safest way.

Ah okay when I get to building the computer I'll be sure to learn more about overclocking through BIOS.

For over clocking and a board that runs dual cards RE SLI/Crossfire than look at this combo and a 650w - 750w psu.
