That looks pretty good for the OP, but I would change a few things.

Abit IP35-E for mobo
Ballistix for RAM
3850 for GFX
Haswell

If you can stretch your budget a little, some better RAM wouldn't hurt, but I'd get a better PSU/GFX over that.
I guess my eyes are broken !!!!

Ignorance is bliss they say !!
NATE911 um said it was better , I do read all the posts and .........
Take your own advice and re-read before you speak / or try and flame me.
I was agreeing with your original selection , sorry for steering
towards the better unit.

Also I have a "budget" rig , and from my experiances there is no such thing as a
budget PSU unless you want premium problems !!!

Where did you all come up with that 1?
Perhaps from their incredible performance? High current, single rails with minimal ripple, high efficiency, and near silent operation. Factor in the price and it's near impossible to beat them for anything in the sub 650W range.

Agreed any Seasonic (650W and above) branded Corsair is great , they
don't make their own PSU , the good ones are made by seasonic and
the more budget ones are made my a bevy of munfacturers , just like their
RAM , some have this IC some have that one , there is no consistancy in
their products becuase they are a BRAND not the manufacturer.
Enermax is thier own thing ,and have some of the highest rated high end
PSU ever not to mention highest rated low end PSU .

I dont like crapshoots ,especially on my POWER!!
I.E you buy Enermax thats what you get , you buy corsair it may be anything
only way to tell is to match the UL listing . Go read up on what Johnny Bravo
has found out about this if you need more info !!
PEACE!

D.J.S. sorry i didnt mean to be so snide. I see what you are getting at with the PSU. I understand where you are coming from, but the Corsair PSU from what i've read here are good bang for the buck and seem to be overall pretty reliable. The price point on the enermax is just a tad high for the budget. I do appreciate your input though, thx!

Yes it's rebranded, so you'd expect the manufacturers differ among different model and product lines, but is there any proof of varying manufacturers among a single model of Corsair PSU? I would imagine a single unit model would be under contract to a specific OEM. If that's the case, then you're either getting a Seasonic or a Channel Well Tech which have both performed impressively. I also did a search for Johhny Bravo, but came up with nothing. Have you got a link or something to his findings?

Yeah Johhny Bravo , hardwaresecrets .com
He is also one of the 1337 hardmod guys out there.1!

No offense taken octo !!

And to shed some light on your question about Corsair , Lets use DDR 400
for example , there are more than 10 differant versions of the same "named"
Corsair XMS C2 3200, yet only 2 use an IC that was worth anything BH-5,CH-5, these
are what they send for pre-release benchies , then after their reviewed they
switch IC 's to samsung , hynix , whoever , and the people get inferior product . Look it up , Im not just flapping my gums here. Unless you buy the utmost expensive Corsair
product there is no guarentee its gonna be good.That was my whole point. Its a brand
like Eddie Bower , ect.. they buy other peoples stuff and relabel it.
