hehe, yeah the ram. although i think 16GB is more than enough. and i can't recommend this PSU enough...

I think a 750W PSU will be better, just because it's more versatile. if you decide to SLI that 670 in the future, you'll have plenty of power. 650W would probably cover it, but you know, it's good to be safe.

hey, I switched to this power supply after I posted this thread http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... would it be fine?

the rosewill capstone series is a proven excellent PSU. I would take it over the budget Corsair you picked.

The CX750M is a good power supply but for long term 24/7 uses under heavy GPU and CPU load you may wish to consider a TX or HX 750 or a XFX750W


what makes you say this?

The CX capacitors are not as good as the HX and TX ones so less relaible
