    The power supply will not support that graphics card as it requires a 500w power supply Specs on newegg.
    The rest looks ok just verify that the cpu comes with a acceptable cooling unit.

    That would work. But if you ever want to run dual video cards you should stick with ati video cards as the motherboard you have chosen doesn't support "sli" which is for nvidia but does support "crossfire" which is for ati.

    Some games work better with Crossfire than SLI, other games may work better with SLI over Xfire.

    I suggest looking at your games you want to play first.... Then decide your build.

    I'm using an Asus AC97 PRo Mboard, Antec 1000 watt PSU, Dual Nvidea Gevorce GTX 760'sSLI's on a Liquid cooled I7 4790 processor, 32 gigs ram, qty 4 250 gig Samsung Evo's Raid 10 qty 2 samsung Evo's 500 gig Raid1. In an Antec 900 Case and a Blue Ray Burner.

    It runs basically anything I want it to.

    A good reference site is

    http://techbuyersguru.com/DIYPCs.php

    They have multiple budget recommendations that they update frequently. I took parts from their $1000 to $2000 guides and built what I wanted on my budget, reusing the PSU and DVD burner from my old rig so I could spend more on other components. Worth checking out at least.
    What broke, uh, needs upgrading now?

    If I were you I would spend a decent amount of money and get a good system that will run games in a few years not one that will hardley run current games. It will be cheaper in the long run too!

    Check out overclock.net forums. Not saying the guys here don't give good suggestions, but over there... that's their thing.

    One other thing you may want to consider for a super fast rig is adding a solid state drive. They have come down alot in price and are well worth it. If the size is too small, just use it for your OS and install everything else on a larger magnetic drive. I just put one in an old laptop I gave to my wife, and from a powered-off state, it is booted and running in 20 seconds!

    I agree. I have slowly built mine up. I have a quad core... 8 gigs of DDR3 ram... etc. etc. But nothing has made such a HUGE difference as my SSD. My buddy threw an SSD into a cheap older laptop for an experiment and now that thing works like it's got a turbo AND nitrous on it.

    From a cold boot, I can be online in 8 seconds. Unbelievable but true. I timed it.

    Gaming PC

    Well so i finally ended up with a much powerful pc. I totally forgot about the thread i have. I firstly got my pc in September 2015 with the following specs:

    -NZXT H440 case
    -MSI 970 Gaming MoBo
    -AMD 8350 8 core CPU
    -Corsair H100i liquid cooler
    -Gigabyte 960 4GB
    -Samsung 850evo 250gb SSD
    -Sharkoon 700w 80Bronce PSU
    -Hyper X 8gb DDR3 RAM (4x2)

    SET-UP BEFORE





    After some time i ended up selling the MoBo,CPU,RAM and Video card to upgrade since it wasnt enought for me with what i had. So i ended up buying:

    -Intel 6700k CPU
    -Asus Z170-A MoBo
    -Hyper X 8GB DDR4 RAM (bought an extra 8gb stick after a month to get 16gb total)
    -EVGA 980 Ti Video card

    SET-UP AFTER (also moved house same time)

    Gaming PC

    UPDATE: New extion for the 8pin gpu connector, silverstone white extension to match the rest. Samsung 500gb 850evo SSD. Throwed in the stock fans for the radiator since the ones from the case i put on wasnt good enoght to push air through the rad, abit noiser but more cool the cpu. Gonna get sooner or later some new fans. Thinking of the corsair sp120 quiet edition but any ither recomendation will be appreciated. They do need to be white and not noisy or with PWN so i can control the speed
