Just looking for some quick opinions on these parts before i make the purchase.
A couple things:
1. Looking to keep the budget around 1100 or less.
2. Probably going to be using windows 8
3. I could probably use a cheaper PSU but I like corsairs modular ones.


Heres the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/tdXp

Having never built a comp before i have a few questions.

Is there a similar GPU option around the same price or less? I prefer geforce cards and im looking for something that isnt going to leave me wanting to upgrade in a year.
Will this case offer enough room and good airflow for what ive selected?
Are there any comparable parts from different manufacturers that you prefer?
Any other glaring issues?

Thanks for your time and help!

There's no price difference between the hx650 and hx750, so get the HX750, if you want some day to do a SLI setup it's worth :

or if you want cheaper but also good psu : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/pc-power--cooling-power-su...

And no, you have a selected a good card, the evga 670 FTW has the 680 gtx pcb, it overclocks well, i wouldn't change it, the case is also good for it's price, it has good airflow and space.
No issues in your build.

Also take this board in consideration : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's better than the asus.
