Get a 3570k and a 7950 instead of a 3770k and a 7870. You get a better bang for your buck. Find a quality 550w-650w PSU instead as it will be more than enough for this setup. And either get a bigger SSD (250GB+) or a secondary mechanical HDD.
lol build

You're welcome.  You're very lucky or blessed to have him around.  Now that you're on Overclock.net, you can build it yourself and you'll love your computer even more than you would if he built it.

Well maybe.  I have a 60 GB as my C: and a 64 GB as my D:, and I have about 4.5 GB free on both and it's been like that for a long time.  :)

650W Rosewill CAPSTONE Modular Cable Version Series for $89.99 shipped, $74.99 after $15.00 rebate card

It has way more than enough power:

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_radeon_hd_7850_and_7870_review,7.html

With one 7870 under full load in their system, their PSU pulled 274W.  The 7870 alone pulled 127W, so I'll add 127W to 274W in order to figure out a crossfire power draw.  That would make the PSU pulling 401W from the wall outlet.  Their CPU was idling, so if I had 150W for a 3770K overclocked to 5 GHz and under full load (I can prove it), then that makes the PSU pulling 551W from the wall outlet.  So if the PSU is 85% efficient while pulling 551W from the wall outlet, then the system is pulling 468W from the PSU.  However, the gaming load would be closer to 375-425W - maybe 450W at times (maybe).

So with the extreme situation where the 7870s and the overclocked 3770K at 5 GHz are under full load simultaneously, the system could pull up to about 470W.  A more realistic power draw would max at at 425W to maybe 450W.  This means a quality-made 550W power supply is more than enough because the PSU would be able to continuously deliver 550W if it's ever needed.  This isn't cutting it close, it's more like the sweet spot.  wink.gif

However, a 550W PSU that has 4 x PCI-E cables costs more than a 650W with 4 x PCI-E cables.  I mean for example, here's the cheapest 550W unit I can find that has 4 x PCI-E cables:

550W KINGWIN Absolute Platinum Series for $124.98 after shipping, but it's not even modular.

Here's a similar modular unit:

550W KINGWIN Lazer Platinum for $154.98 after shipping

So yeah, the Rosewill 650-M is a "no-brainer".  wink.gif
Thanks unfortunately I been building for a few months now and the psu was one of the first things that and the cpu I know can't be returned sorry for not clarifying that.

Aw.  Well, at least you didn't get a low-quality unit.  Still, the small load on this PSU will result in a lower-than-advertised efficiency.

COOLER MASTER CM Storm series Trooper
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Hybrid 850W
SAPPHIRE RADEON HD 7870 XT w/boost 2gb(actually runs the tahiti architecture)
CORSAIR CMXAF1 memory fans
MSI Z77 MPOWER LGA 1155(havent bought yet)
OCZ Vertex 4 128gb(havent bought yet)
G.SKILL Sniper Series 16gb 2x8gb 1866 memory(havent bought yet)
COOLER MASTER Seidon 120M(havent bought yet)

The only reason im buying that memory is cause I wanna OC to atleast 2000 figures 1866 memory would be safer to do that with than 1600 or am I a complete idiot lol. If you guys know of some really good memory plaese tell me my budget for memory hovers around 100$ and want 16gb(2x8gb so I can have 2 open dimm slots).
I also have the following from my dell computer that I dont need to buy:
1 WD caviar black 1TB

27 inch led monitor
some microsoft keyboard
