  1. Get the Asrock Extreme6 over the fatal1ty professional. You will get a better experience.
    Coolermaster evo doesn't cost 80 dollars.

    HIS Radeon HD 7950 review
    Our test system is based on a power hungry Core i7 965 / X58 system.
    Quote:
    Measured power consumption

    System in IDLE = 165W
    System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 300W
    Difference (GPU load) = 138W
    Add average IDLE wattage ~3W
    Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 138 Watts

    Radeon HD 7950 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.


    lets split the difference and look at a quality 550:

    XFX 550W PRO550W Core Edition $59.99
    After Mail In Rebate: $49.99
  3. The OCZ SSD should be looked at, TigerDirect sells the Vertex 3 120GB on sale every couple of weeks for about $80. It's what I have, and its a good drive.

    you can read the review to be assured, 3D guru is a reputable site. well, to be honest i think there are times that they overestimate the wattage of a needed PSU.
    the test system they use will draw more power than your ivy bridge unless you overclock past 4.2 and need to raise your Vcore; then they would be the ~same.

    if you feel better with a 600 watt then go for it. just keep in mind that PSUs lose efficiency when below a 20% load (~74%). so if you get a 800 watt 80 bronze PSU and idle under 160 watts, which a system does most of the time, your efficiency will be that of a non 80+ PSU.
