i'd take the xfx xxx edition 850w, it's a much better quality psu, it's a 80 silver plus vs the thermaltake 80 plus bronze, thermaltake is know for a crappy brand of psus.

+10000 for both posters :lol: 
XFX is generally better than Thermaltake (there are SOME good thermaltake power supplies).

Why 3 8GB modules? It's going to run in single channel mode if you don't pair them.

Also if you want more than 16GB you'll need Windows 7 Professional/Ultimate/Enterprise or Windows 8 to utilize all of it.
