I am almost done collecting the money for my new gaming rig. This is the setup, well what i have in mind. I dont know what power supply to go with.

CPU : AMD FX-8350 (Will Be Overclocking)

MOTHERBOARD : ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX (Is This A Good Choice? OC With Software?)

RAM : CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (I Want To OC But Dont Know How)

POWER SUPPLY : ?????????????????????????????????????/

HD : Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

VIDEO CARD : EVGA 04G-P4-3768-KR GeForce GTX 760 FTW 4GB 256-bit GDDR5
***Two Way SLI***
(Should I OC?) Dont know....

CASE : NZXT Phantom 530 Black ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

COOLING : CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 & Maybe Another Fan Or Two.

MONITOR : ASUS VG248QE Black 24"

I would really appreciate all responses.

Is this a good setup? Would i be able to run Assassins Creed Black-flag maximum settings 60+ FPS?

Oh and i wish to overclock the CPU and RAM, not sure about the GPUs.

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

I would go with a good brand like Corsair, Seasonic or XFX and 850W or above, maybe is too much but it's future proof.

A good SLI certified PSU that is at LEAST 700w and 80+ bronze will be fine. Go for a modular PSU, they rock.

As for your queries on overclocking, the 8350 will overclock well, so long as temps are good. Should be able to get 4.5 with little trouble.

In my experience, overclocking GPUs is rather easy. It's actually my area of expertise. There is no reason not to overclock your 760s. I'd try an extra 100Mhz on the clock, and 100-200 on the memory to start. But you really must overclock both cards the same. Might need to increase voltage a bit, testing will help you find out. Your overclock is good if temp are good, and if you don't notice any weird artifacts or crashing.

As for the RAM, you might be able to pull 1866, or lower timings. It's all done in the BIOS. You might need to increase the DRAM voltage a bit to pull it off.

As for the Mobo, it's grand for overclocking. I'd try to increase the NB clock and probably voltage with it to increase stability and speed.
