Which option is better? $1400 new build

So i am finalizing my parts and while looking at newegg.com i noticed they had a bundle of basically what i wanted but slightly different parts

Since the bundle is only 6 parts, the other parts will remain the same for both options.

Was thinking about adding a gtx 670 in the far away future and this computer is gonna be 95% used for gaming and i want to try my hands at overclocking

OPTION 1 - BUNDLE: (gets a discount)


OPTION 2 - my original plan:


SO BASICALLY Whats better option between the MBO, PSU, Memory, SSD?

More about which option better 1400 build
  1. Just because a PSU is Silver rated doesn't mean you need it. A TX750 V2 is more than enough IMO.
  2. Yes.
  3. is 750w enough if i get another gtx 670 in the future?
