Gah, accidentally deleted first post attempt, quick version. RAM is nice for timings, if u don't need it u can get 8GB for cheaper. Get a corsair/xfx/seasonic psu instead, should be the same price. Don't get a non reference graphics card from XFX, not usually a good idea as they use cheaper components. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-588-_-Product good card with a great cooler on it, you could also spend $25 more and get the twin frozer 3 card that will overclock better.

Most important question ever:

What do you want this build to be able to do/what are you going to be doing with it?

Second most important question:

What is your budget?

Custom WC loop ftw then. 650D is an awesome case, I really enjoyed working with it.

Enjoy!

I'd go with a Corsair AX850 PSU myself...
post #7 of 10
that psu is overkill...but im guessing you are going to crossfire in the future.

I'm trying to stay away from water cooling this time around but keep the corsair all-in-one cpu cooler. The PSU 850w I don't think is overkill. I might do crossfire in the near future.

Why are you going from a 800D to a 650d?

I used to run water cooling and the 800D was pure sex but 800D is too big if your not running water. Next build is no water and this 800D takes up my whole cabinet area. No room for air flow to escape except the rear.

I've also changed out the PSU to this one...

I like the cable design better. Will look better too. Thanks Majin SSJ Eric
