  1. Overkill on PSU, get this:
    OCZ ZT Series 750W

    Are you going with an SSD as your main Hard Drive?
    If you are, prepare to run out of space. Fast.
  2. im not sure, i was thinking about an ssd and hdd. any suggestions?
  3. i know its overkill on psu but $100 (single 12v rail) modular... 850w overkill.... but if i get a new gcard down the line.. PSU could last me next 10 years so thats a $10 a year investment.
  4. look into benchmarks for your GPU 7850 VS 560 Ti
  5. will go over budget
  6. Whats the budget ? I think you can do better, If its a gaming rig you can drop the SSD, buy a CM HAF 912, get a cheeper MoBo and get a better GPU

    gaming is 70 % GPU power.
