Opinions on My choices so far

So I've decided to build myself a new gaming rig. (I've been playing on a dell xps 502 laptop....) and I was just trying to get some opinions on what i've decided on so far.

Case Raidmax Altas ATX Mid Tower Case ATX-295WB

MB ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Ramm Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10)

HDD Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM - WD1002FAEX

PSU OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply

CPU AMD FX-6300 FX-Series Six-Core Processor Edition, Black AM3 FD6300WMHKBOX

GPU MSI R7850 Twin Frozr OC AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB GDDR5

Also I just have a generic asus dvd drive as well as 3 120mm fans and 1 corsair H60 liquid cooler for my cpu.

Any feedback would be apreciated :) I went with an amd build becasue i only have about $800 and I'm trying to get the best deal for my money.

  1. downgrade to 8gb ram.
    550w is fine for your build if you don't want to cfx.
  2. well i intend to crossfire another gpu in the future when i have more money but i just didnt have the money atm for both gpu's also thank you that saves me like $40 on the ramm
  3. downgrade to 8gb ram.

  4. Better GPU if you wait for it to come back in stock http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131484&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    16gb rams is overkill for gaming. 8gb is plenty enough.
  5. hey the best kill is over kill :) just kidding i'll def. swap out the ram to save half the cost. Figure go with the corsair vengence blue 8gb 1600 instead The reason I decided to go with the msi gpu was for the dual fans.

    Research 7870 Tahiti, and you'll get why this comment is awesome.
  7. the only thing that worries me about that gpu is the consistant reviews giving it an operating temp around 70c which seems quite high to me.
  8. 70C isn't a high operating temp. at all. That's actually pretty standard for a higher end card.
  9. If you are really worried about the temps, you can buy the sapphire 7870 XT at regular price for $245 after mail in rebates. There's two fans on it, but the powercooler one is on sale so its your choice. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202024&Tpk=sapphire%20xt
