2x4gb 1866MHz. Im glad I can still go Windows 7 then

id probably roll the the 1866mhz or 1600mhz, no slower then that. and again as I mentioned win 7 and the amd build. remember to add fans as necessary to keep the build cool. that seasonic will easily power an amd 8 core build and a high end graphics card x2 even.

You dont need more then 550 watts

And what if he wants a second GPU down the line? I've been there myself- thinking I will only want 1 GPU then buying a PSU powerful enough to run just 1 GPU, then deciding later on that I want a second GPU and having to spend even more money on a new PSU.

Stick with the Seasonic if it's in your budget.

The Rosewill Capstone-M is still the best bang for buck at least most of the time it is

I just checked and the rosewill was similar price to the seasonic (I'm from Australia wink.gif). Just wondering now if 650W is enough if i ever do want to SLI and with that graphics card would it ever be necessary?

Yes it would be enough power draw would still be below 600 watts even with overclocks

On the flip side running a PSU close to the max is not the best idea for two reasons one is PSU efficiency above 80% load is lower and the second is lifetime of the unit would be a little shorter

And the power supply fan will be running at high to full speed creating more noise to the system.

Halve the RAM you don't need 16GB 8 is plenty to game also just get some 1866 or 1600 speed RAM the 2133 is pointless. 8GB (2 X4Gb) of corsair vengeance low profile would be plenty and save $$$

You could drop to a quality 650W PSU and still have plenty of spare room

If its just for gaming an i5 4670k would be plenty and save $

what he said. get corsair low profile ram 2x 4Gb that is enough and you wont have a problem going push pull on the coolermaster evo 212
