  1. Looks good. Maybe add an SSD as the OS drive, and get a 750 watt PSU in case you plan on doing crossfire later.
  2. Ok. so 750watts instead of the 650, and SSD in the mix.
  3. this suits you better for your usage

    if you want me to, i can make it about 100 dollars cheaper by using a smaller cooler, a slightly downgraded motherboard, and a cheaper case. they both still perform the same
  4. you only need 8gb of ram not 16gb
