Anything you would change if so I have linked the website I used so that is what I can use.

The M4 is a little better then the 520 but not really noticeably faster. I would just go for the cheaper one which is the M4. I would probably go with the Corsair TX 650w because its reliable and it has a 5 year warranty. All the rest looks fine.

???

The HX Corsairs are superior to the TX corsairs (a tad more efficiency, and modular vs ordinary cables, also the HX is perhaps a tiny bit newer design). The Seasonic S12II has the exact same warranty. The Antecs have a 3-year warranty. And as for reliable, the Antecs I mentioned, the Seasonics, and the Corsairs are all going to be just as reliable. They're all made by the same company - Seasonic. Don't recommend a power supply just because of its brand and because it's been around for awhile.

The Corsairs are fine power supplies, but they're a waste of money, because they sell even though Corsair jacks the prices up.

P.S. the Intel SSD is generally rated to be a bit faster than the m4. According to anandtech anyway (though as you said, no one will actually notice a difference in a real world scenario).

I live in Australia and want to shop locally so I can't do any of the stores you listed as they all have shipping problems/restrictions. But would you have any ideas for upgrading components as I have more money to spend maybe a 570 or 670 when It comes out? Or 6870? biggrin.gif

[EDIT]
Here are the two shops Price lists that I'm using
1.http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf
2.http://www.pcdiy.com.au/ad/Pricelist.pdf

Could you please make changes based on theese stores it would be greatly appreciated as I am using those stores biggrin.gif

A 570 doesn't perform much better than a 7850, certainly not enough for the increase in price. The 7870 is where I'd go in that price range. Though who knows, when the 670 comes out that might change.

To be honest, on a standard monitor you're only going to see an improvement with the 7870 over the 7850 in highly demanding games. A bit of an improvement in FPS or quality in BF3, for instance, but most everything else is going to run the same - smooth & pretty - on both GPUs. In either case, I'd lean towards one of the Sapphire cards in the second store over the powercoolers in the first store... Sapphire has notably quiet and effective heatsinks on their 7XXX series cards.
