Hi guys,
Hopefully going to be buying the components for my new pc as my old one is getting a bit dated for gaming(Phenom II X4 B50 + DDR2 ram).
I however will not be buying a new GFX card as i brought one recently (7850 2GB), If you have any experience with this particular parts, or recommend a different product please leave a comment:

Intel Core i5 3570K - $232 (Will be buying a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro rev.2 for $30 later on)

Asrock H77-PRO4-MVP - $94

Corsair 16GB (4X4GB) 1600Mhz CL9 (9-9-9-24) (I know this is a large amount of ram, but i realize how quickly the standard changes for RAM + quite cheap. - $99

Bitfenix Shinobi Mid-Tower Case - $69

Silverstone ST60F-P 600W 80+ - $108

Kingston 120GB SSD V+200 - $96

Western Digital 1TB Sata3 HDD 64M Caviar Blue - $72

The budget for this build is $800, and i want it to be a fast responsive machine.

Ahh... Good Build but your Mobo will not let you Overclock.
So, i5 3570k gets wasted.
Get a Asrock Z77 Extreme4

And for the SSD, I'd suggest you a OCZ Agility 4 because that Kingston doesn't provide the speed which is rated on the Product.

Interesting, I read that H77 could overclock the Ivy Bridges but not the previous generation ( but boards must specify if overvoltage is available). One of the reviews on the board i selected talked about the overclock ability on the bios.

Ill take your word on the Kingston ssd, how about this one:
SanDisk Extreme SSD 120G - $96

I'm not sure. But mostly people prefer a Z77 Mobo with a k processor.

And for the SSD. Samsung 830 or Intel 530 would be good.
They have some good Reviews. OCZ is also good.

My bad, The board is a Z77 chipset i just typed it wrong.
And there is a 128GB Samsung 830 SSD for 94 bucks at the moment, but its out of stock. I reckon i will go with the SanDisk one as the reviews are quite good on it and its got a nice 3 year warranty.

Do you reckon that the SilverStone PSU will be enough to power a i5 3750K + PowerColor 7850 PCS+ edition + 16GB of ram?

I would suggest you a Corsair CX600 for casualness.
But a Corsair GS600 is recommended from my side. It has Blue Lights and is rated very good, better than CX Series and is with TX.

What sort of rig is it powering?

I was looking at the Corsair Range for awhile, in particular that exact one, but the Silverstone caught my eye a bit it being modular and the 80+ bronze rating.

It will be good for selecting PSU


I saw that, i noticed the SilverStone more because it had both of those features whereas the Corsair counterpart doesn't.
Is 600W with a bronze rating going to be enough for this system though?

600w is more than enough. But better to be future proof too.
Even a Good Brand 500w is enough to run your System.

I would suggest you a CX600 or GS600 atleast.
Even a CX500 will do.
And Silverstone do look a good brand but Corsair is better or Must say "Best" in making PSUs.

Okay thanks for your time mate, one last question:
Is the airflow, noise and heat of your PSU quite good on idle/load? i ask this many questions because my last PSU purchase was quite a bad one (coal whine when turned off)
