Sure you can, that config will pull out slightly below 300W. You can even overclock your cpu and video card though I wouldn't risk overclocking the cpu nor the gpu too high. Maybe cpu as high as 4.2GHz and a 10% OC on the gpu

Even the older version is more than enough. As I said before, that config will pull out less than 300W.

I would recommend getting 8GB of 1600MHz RAM as they are really REALLY cheap these days. Even without overclocking, I'd still recommend getting an aftermarket cpu cooler like the CM Hyper 212+ or Hyper TX3 (around $20) because Intel stock coolers are terrible in terms of noise and performance.

Other than that, if you have extra money to spend, I see no reason why not to buy an SSD. Most modern PC by now should at least have one. Maybe get like a smaller capacity 90GB for the boot drive.

Hd 7850 pull's 122 W from your system.

That gives you the opportunity to add it to your system .
Maybe later make it 8Gb ram (not very neccesary)
@ that resolution Hd 7850 will max out everything. You dont need to tweak anything.

note: you'll not be able to overclock, despite that the CPU is of K-series... your motherboard will not allow - it is based on H77 chipset... for overclocking you need P67, Z68 or Z77 chipset :)

Lol I didn't even realize it's an H77 board.

Sorry about that OP :p
