I will be buying a 7870 around Christmas and possibly overclocking the CPU after I buy a better heatsink. I would like to know if everything is compatible. Also, leave your opinions on this custom build. Thanks.
All generally good. I would, however, much prefer a PSU like Antec HCG-620M, or PC Power&Cooling Silencer Mklll 600w. Something like Rosewill Hive550w would be adequate. All those are modular. XFX 550w would be adequate, and cheaper, though not modular.
