I'd recommend getting a 64 (or even 90) GB SSD for boot drive and it will fit a few games that you think would benefit, and use the extra money to buy a normal 7200 RPM HDD.

The only other option there is to get a larger SSD, I'd say at least 256 (or two 128s in RAID0).

If you're positive that you won't be upgrading to a 3 monitor set up then the 1.5 GB standard 580 is perfectly fine, only go 3GB if you're fairly sure of a monitor upgrade in the future.

Power supply is possibly a bit too much if you're positive of not going SLI, 750w might save you a few bucks.

Hey, thanks for the advices again.

As I stated this will definitely not be my primary computer as I already got a laptop (not windows and I'm studying overseas so it will be my primary computer) and a desktop (not windows, left here by my former housemate).
So based on only games (+ OS), will 128GB be sufficient (no music, movies and torrents)?

BTW, I don't care about booting speed, loading time or other stuff "non-ingame" so will 128GB SSD (2.5 times cost of the HDD) or 1TB HDD be better (is there any performance gain besides faster loading speed)?

AX750 and 850 is like ~$25 in difference, will I gain performance (by not over powering) for 750 over 850 (as maybe... just in case... I want to go 580 SLI)?

I think speed is the only advantage with an SSD. For the PSUs, you wont gain performance by giving yourself more wattage, but you will be able to expand more. For an SLI, 750-1500W PSUs are what are recommended (750W for 2, 1000W for 3 and 1200-1500W for 4) by most computer-sales-people I've spoken to, though I don't know about what OCN would say

The RX360 kit only cost more than the Noctua about $100 and seems I can oc much better with it and convince myself not to buy a non-ref 580 for future GPU wc upgrade. Although the 800D costs much more.
