A Corsair 750W is around 20$ more expensive than it's 650W cousin. If you go with the 750W you have the option of going SLI in the future.

My personal philosophy is not to cut corners with power... and for 20$ why would you?

Of course not. Heck, I was using my X-750 to run a Sempron and a 4830 for a while.

Okay so the PSU is set.
All I need is the GPU
And also, is the RAM I choose good? Is there a better/newer version or something?

I'm really stick on this part

There's a pretty limited selection of games that use Physx and most are outdated and irrelevant. It's a marketing thing more than anything.

Consider going down to 4GB. 8GB is overkill for gaming. Unless you need the extra e-peen extension of course tongue.gif

I'm going to need that 8GB for other things too. Like Java programs that uses a lot.

Alright so I changed to the RAM bean suggested

As for the most I want to spend, no more then $350.
