I am on the fence on building myself or from iBUYPOWER. Let me know pros and cons on both sides (other than price) I know building myself is cheaper but is Professional Wiring, 3 year warranty and other services worth it.

Thank You

My current PC build has very much the same amount of power draw as yours does, however I have 3 hard drives, and 7 case fans. I only need a 650W power supply to run my GTX 670 Overclocked EVGA FTW, and I then have it even further clocked to 110% power draw. I do not believe you will ever use 850W on that machine. I also have my CPU clocked an extra .8 Ghz. The power supply I went with was a Corsair TX650M. It's modular, but what I really liked about it was it's single rail, and the amps provided are more than what's specified exclusively on the GTX 670.

Note: I had to buy a new PSU for my GTX 670 because my 850W PSU did not provide sufficient amps per rail.

I think the Corsair TX are the best PSUs for the buck...

The build looks good to me. Not sure on that PSU though, never heard anything about XFX. Professional wiring is good, but its really hard to mess up wiring nowadays with cases the way theyre laid out and all. i doubt you would save all that much anyway, i bet its a wash. they buy in bulk to get lower prices on the components. price it up on pcpartpicker.... i bet its within $100.

Unless you really want to build it yourself, just let them do it....
