Agreed on the PSU. You don't really need more than a 750W unless you are going to go crazy with the accessories(8+HDD, multi-pump water cooling system, lots of lights, etc). If you are able to drop the extra money, I would strongly recommend trying to get a PSU with a gold rating. If you are worried about the electrical bills, that feature will pay for it's self in short order =]
i hope to see how the build goes!
Will I really see a major difference if I'm going with a 7950 card? I'm sure I won't get a 7970, because that's out of my budget. I'm planning on working with photoshop, Cinema 4D and After Afects. Maybe a little gaming... You think the 7870 hawk isn't powerfull enough for that?
For the PSU I'll go for the HX 750w, that seems to be a better option.
But for the SSD, As I looked up the Samsung and the Crucial, numbers are telling me the OCZ Agility 3 has faster write- and reading speeds. Are those numbers just irrellevant? and are Samsung and Crucial just better brands?
