Hello guys,

Hope that I get your good opinion about the PC I want to build. Here goes:

MB: AS Rock H77M
Cpu : i7 3770
Cpu fan:
Video: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850
Ram: 8 gb
PS: 520w
Case haven't decided yet.

One of my worries is that the PS won't be enough for this config.
Any suggestions/comments are greatly appreciated!

You are correct, that PSU is not a good choice.

Also, is it ok for what? What's its use?

Check out the sticky 'how to ask for newbuild and upgrade advice' and post back.

Sorry about that...first time posting here...ashamed to say that I can't find "how to ask for newbuild and upgrade advice".. I want this rig for working and occasional gaming.
