Good build around $750

I need a need computer for school because the laptop isn't cutting it. Going to purchase it in about two weeks. It will mostly be used for revit lumion and Photoshop some games movies and general browsing too. I dont want to go much over 750. I plan on overclocking when I get a better fan but probably won't crossfire ever.
Here's what I have right now let me know what you guys think

  3. Will 500w be enough if that's what the gpu requires and I plan to overclock?
  4. 500-550w is plenty for your system, including the cpu and gpu overclocked.
  5. and that corsair 500W is now on sale, thats why i put it instead any higher psu
    trusted psu even it is lower wattage will be enough :) crxp psu with even 1000W will be bad...

    btw 700 usd if you pick your i5 in microcenter. otherwise, in other store its normal price is 200
  6. I already have it priced for microcenter and I will definitely go with the corsair psu
  7. So other than that everything seems pretty good?
  8. yes exactly :) see the 3rd post
  9. That ram is current sold out and out of stock, get this : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wYk8
