  1. overpowered psu. 550-600w will be enough
    dont use amd branded ram for an intel cpu/mobo
  2. Best answer
    They are compatible, but I recommend msi video cords, xfx or corsair PSU's, and ivy bridge processors. However, you didn't ask for suggestions, so I won't go into detail.
  3. Should be, yep.
    Though with that sort of budget, I highly recommend getting an SSD as a boot drive - it's seriously mind boggling. As Tom's said recently, it's just about the biggest upgrade you could do to a modern computer.
  4. Thanks man, i will look into a SSD
  5. Well this PSU is less money than my original choice, so why not, and with the RAM what would you suggest.
  6. I'd also love to hear suggestions if you have any!
  7. Would this RAM be okay?

    Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz Desktop Memory (CMD8GX3M2A1600C8)
  8. I would recommend an MSI 7850 over the 6870.

    I also recommend in i5-3570k

    It will overclock better and ivy-bridge is far superior to sandy.

    Finally I suggest a corsair PSU over the thermaltake.

    If you get the PSU today, its an extra $10 off.

    Yea, its great RAM. It's really over-priced though. This is just as good.
