The core concept of your proposed rig look solid with no obvious flaws. Solid motherboard, mid-range video card, and SSD choices. I'm more of NVIDIA guy so I'd have picked a GTX 660 from ASUS, but there's nothing wrong with a 7850 either.

If I were to change one thing about it, it would be the PSU. You don't need a 650w unit for a 3570K and any single video card. The Seasonic G-Series 550w is a much higher-quality PSU than that Corsair HX while costing $4 less.

As for the cabling, I don't know anything at all about that...

Thanks for the prompt feedback, the video cards look the same but I have heard good things about the GeForce ranges so I may swap it since its only $10 difference

This machine would be on 24/7 so would that make a difference in choosing the Seasonic?

Pick some Gelid Silent 12 instead of the Fractal they're much better.

Drop down to a 500W PSU, change the heatsink for a Thermalright Macho and thé HDD for a WD10EZEX. With the spared money you should be able to get an HD 7950 or 7870 XT.

Actually, I have a correction to make. I assumed that the Corsair HX650 v2 was built by CWT like the higher-wattage (750+) models in the same line, but upon further investigation I discovered that the 650w model is built by Seasonic and uses the same basic platform as their own G-Series 550w. As such, there's no reason not to get the Corsair HX650 v2 as it will provide an extra 100w of "headroom" for future upgrades.
