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.

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.

If you live by a micro center you can get that mobo i posted with a i5 3570K for 269


my budgets around 800-900$ but what you just gave me helped alot! thank you
