Save $90 and get the Corsair HX850. And save more $$$ and drop the Dominator ram. Go G.Skill, less expensive but still great.

You could even live with something like a SIlverstone Strider Plus 850 or 750 and shave a little more cost off of that, yet still retain a very solid Power Supply.

And Crazyhorse is right , drop the Dominator RAM and opt for something like G.Skill or Mushkin and save some coin there too.

Otherwise it looks solid.

Cool. Thanks a lot. Yea the Dominators are pretty expensive. and i don't really need a 1000watt power supply is i'm only using one video card ;p But who knows, i'll probably crossfire it later.

So let us know your final decision. Just interested to know, as things can change, especially if something unexpectedly shows up on sale. Have fun with the build!

Smile New Builds

Just like ZZLee says, if you keep an eye on the BST, there are some pretty good deals. That could save you a fair bit more, which could allow you to get/keep some of the premium components in your build. For me, if I can buy something with a lifetime warranty for a competitive price, that's a consideration. Most components with this kind of warranty are pretty solid.

Smile Gaming Rig

There's an opportunity to purchase 12 gbs of ram on the BST for a good price right now. I think $320 with a cooler thrown in. Good luck.

Edit: just so you know. This is triple channel, so no good for this build, but it gives you an idea about great deals on BST.
Edit 2: I have 8 gigs of Patriot Viper Extreme 7-7-7-20 1333 for $200, if interested.
