Suggestions on new rig
Any regulars mine checking my build for improvements/suggestions. It's a gaming PC, and I wanted it to be very quiet (hence the case) and power efficient too. Keeping under 900 was a goal and so was including a ssd. Will be playing MMO's mostly but I tend to try most pc games. Thanks in advance.
I didn't see a cpu cooler you should get one for a k cpu. I would recommend getting a i5 3570k over the i5 2500k. Also if you're getting a asrock pro just get the pro3. You said you want to be power efficient the 7850 is a better card, more efficient and only costs a little more his 7850 $180 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161406

I like this build but the case seems like it could be subpar compared to 550 for sound dampering and temp. Am I wrong?
Also the psu i picked is well rated and Gold certified. Do I need to go 750w to power this system you built? Efficiency and sound are important.
Edit: hard drive isnt in build because I have one.
