My build is about $1600 (Including monitor, OS, etc.) and I just would like someone to look over it and see if there are any suggestions. (Also PCPartPicker says there might be a problem with the case and power supply compatibility so?)

Woah dude, you dont put a gtx 780 on a raidmax psu. Heck don't put anything on a raidmax psu, they are total junk. Edited your build with the cheapest good quality 850w psu I found.

Not sure why you need 850w unless you plan to SLI in the future. Otherwise for a single gtx 780 650w is plenty.

Hi. I don't see much wrong wit this build. You may want to save a little and use a Cooler Master 912 HAF or 922 Haf case. Use the savings for a good PSU as was pointed out earlier. A 750w Seasonic Modular would be good. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ss75...

This build is for some relatively heavy gaming and I might be adding SLI support in the future, but not very likely.

THat PSU I linked to, should be fine for most cards in sli should you go that way, although the card you have chosen should keep in the game for some time to come.

dropped out that unnecessary case and crappy power supply. threw in an xfx 650w(seasonic made), ram is pretty much all the same the gskillz is just costs less, a classified 780 that will overclock like crazy, and a high quality crucial 120gb ssd, and a very reliable 5 year warranty WD red series 2tb hd. you don't have to get that $60 blurray writer if you don't want.

More expensive, but has a massive SSD, great case, great CPU cooler and a reliable PSU.
