The build looks good, 2 Things i would change

1 I would opt for a Full ATX MOBO VS the mATX board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

2 I would up the PSU to a 750W to crossfire down the road and room to add a few things to the PC


Your mATX wont sli/crossfire ( you have maybe in your post ) so just point this out

Well, I really dont think im going to crossfire...Why would yo recommend me getting a full ATX instead of a micro?

Why would you get a big case and a small MOBO ?

microATX is just a smaller physical board, so there's less space for expansion cards (PCI slots, PCIe slots

As long as you use low profile RAM your good to go.

3570K > 2500

It looks good. Just make sure you get a board that runs dual cards @ x8. It will show on the specs on newegg under "Details".

The one he recommended is very good for the price. All reliable PSU's at that wattage will have prices around that range.

Since it is only 1 GPU, 650W is with a spare tire for your system.

650W gives enough headroom for 2 OVERCLOCKED 7850s. :)

Yes, it means it could be even less.

But the price was right and it will run @ some 65% and it will last.
