New Build Need some help

Need some advice/recommendations about this build. Mostly about PSU Ram.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155
Memory: Patriot Viper III 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Or Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz(2x 4GB)
Storage: Sandisk 120 GB SSD
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card
Optical Drive: LG DVD
Case: THERMALTAKE V3 BLACK

Since i can get Patriot or kingston for about the same price i will probably buy kingston.

And PSU i can buy around here :

THERMALTAKE TR2 RX650M (650w)
TOPOWER TOP-650PM
SENTEY SOLID POWER SDP650-SS
NZXT SERIES HALE82 650W
Thermaltake TR2 W0388RU (600W)


Im planning on doing OC and cant figure out which one to get.

  1. added 2 more PSU options.:ange:
  2. Other than the Hale 82, every single one of those power supplies is absolute crap (do not purchase anything made by Sentey or Topower, you have been warned!). What is your budget and what store are you buying from? I could suggest far better PSUs and other parts if I knew that.

    mi budget for PSU is 80-100$ but i can probably only get those 5 i listed before.

    So what country do you live in and what store are you buying from? None of those brands except NZXT are top tier manufacturers. Sentey and Topower are in the bottom 15 - they should not even be remotely considered under any circumstances. If you don't know any stores check the link in my signature.
  5. Im from argentina, i checked your site but the only good brand seems Cooler master

    Cooler Master isn't even that good either. If you check the website Hardware Secrets they don't have good things to say about CM power supplies.

    This is a PSU that is from a reputable brand that would be good to buy: http://www.karitacomputacion.com/product_info.php?cPath=53&products_id=2024

    After some research it was very obvious.

    Really? Which models? Antec rebrands a lot of Seasonic PSUs on their higher end models.
  12. Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN 650W

    Read in a lot of places that this model after 8-12 months overheats and just burns out.
