Might as well get a solid PSU and a CLC from the get go and be set for. Later, a custom loop can be installed or something of that nature for cooling. Also, 7950's are a steal right now and they are great GPU's.

firstly 750 watts PSU for future SLi plans you go with a gold certified PSU n pay 90$ wats the use ???? i mean i know it runs efficiently but you wont be be able to even CF/SLi in future better go with a decent PSU which can atleast SLi the cards in future secondly that mother aint cheapo its a decent board for its prize thirdly D14 can clock that chip to its max taking in consideration the motherbard thanx for the frank review on my build

BTW going for a GTX 770 right now is better then going with a H1ooi right now OP will have to spend more to upgrade wink.gif

a little over the budget but i think its worth it

In a way I can agree with you and in a way I can't. 7950's are quite a steal right now, however they only really compare to a GTX760. I recently put up a post about the 2 cards and what the conclusion came to was if you are going OC the 7950, the 7950 is going to be your card, but if you don't the 760 will. GTX770's are supposed to be the new GTX680's so there is no loss in getting one.

As for the PSU, I have put plenty of the Nexus 750W PSU's in gaming and enthusiast rigs(I build custom PC's) They are great little PSU's. IMO it's not going to make much of a difference going with a Gold 550W PSU or a Bronze 750W. If he was going to be maxing out on the PSU it will be a good choice to get the gold, but a 750W will leave plenty of room for OC on both the GPU and CPU. Nexus PSU's are tough little things.

IMO either rig will more than be suit him, but they may need a little tweaking here and there.

As I'm sure we all know the percentages, just in case...

The GPU is AMD and i plan to overclock it so the CPU choice was between the 3570k and 8350 most Threads i read in AMD said for gaming to choose the 3570k not the 8350 but i was still open to getting the 8350 which is also an AMD CPU but noone suggested it in their builds so i take it they thought the same? initially i was going to go AMD FX 8350 and 7950 GPU but because of the AMD threads i read i decided to add the option of the 3570k in there not taking anyones side but most AMD threads i read stated intel (fanboys) always trashtalk AMD so i did not want to go to intel thread telling them that i planned to build a rig that included a AMD GPU and intel CPU figured they would just try to sway me into getting a GTX GPU which i did not want
