Hey everyone, just have a setup to get checked over, need the pro's opinion.

Build will be used primarily for gaming, video editing for school and youtube, and photoshop, etc.

Thanks, also my budget is $1000 so im already $50 over so no more please :) 

Intel Core i5 3570k -$239

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard - $155

Sapphire Radeon HD7850 2GB OC - $275

CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer Case - $95

Corsair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 - $69 (Low profile so I don't interfere with Hyper 212EVO)

CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler - $37

OCZ ModXstreaM Pro 600W Modular Power Supply - $79

Seagate Barracuda 1TB ST1000DM003 - $95

That is all the parts i need, i have an old Optical Drive i can use to install the O/S and whatnot, i also already have Windows 7.

Thanks for all your opinions!

Looks nice, I do not like OCZ for power supply's, I would go with an antec or corsair or even better seasonic. And if you are not going to be storing a lot of files I would really recommend getting an SSD, they really are fast and you will never go back to a HDD and you can get a 120GB Sata 3 for around 90 bucks. Other than that the build looks good.

Seems like a solid build. Personally, I'd opt in for a more efficient PSU, but it's no biggie.

Well can you please find a better Power Supply, on, for $79? and i dont have any more money so i can not get an ssd, might get one for christmas or something.

I don,t understand why poeple keep suggesting the 1600Hz ram everytime on low budget PC. 1333hz bottleneck any games currently.

Sure your just saving 6$ but they are low profile and you won't get any speed increasement for the 6$ so why wasting it ?

As for PSU go with seasonic, antec or corsair.

You don't want a SSD on a 1000$ budget for a gaming PC.

What about the Antec HCG-520M , i wanted a modular power supply so im thinking this is better?

Antec offers several power supplies which tend to be hit or miss. The models made by CWT i would avoid but the Delta/Seasonic models are very good.
