The Radeon 7850 can match and beat the GTX 580 in a lot of tests, so yes.

Yes - but I'd personally get a different case and ditch the fans. Wait until you get your case and then see how your air flow is setup before buying more.

This is what I'd suggest: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It will definitely help improve your system's air flow.

Only thing will be when the price drops - add a second 6850.

Change out the case with the one I suggested \and I'd say it's a 9/10.

1: im pretty dam sure that you cant overclock on the h77 chipset. i would then get a z77x-ud3h motherboard from gigabyte

2:i would get the asus directcu2 version of the 7850. the cooler is very effcient and is 2 slot

3:m12II is a great choice. another option that is pretty good is the PC Power & Cooling MKIII 600w

4:id get a case like a antec one or a antec 302. the haf 912 that g-unit1111 recommended is also great. its your own personal preference with the case

5:nice cooler is a hyper 212 evo from cooler master

6: a cheaper hard drive would be a seagate barracuda 1tb 64mb cache. it performs slightly better but you would sacrifice some of the warranty. i think seagate has like a 1 or 2 year warranty on their drives while the caviar black has 5 years

@thebig troll.

I have already built this system.
Thanks for pointing me out. :D 

It is like i made some bad decisions on casing and mobo :cry: 

I read in some forum, H77 can OC but it is very limited like 100MHz as the stock voltage is fixed.
It seem like I cannot OC.

you should get it. it offers cooler operating temperatures (about 10-18c cooler) and is usually quieter than the stock fan. if you system runs cooler= your components last longer
