Little overboard on the PSU. I would recommend a modular unit instead too.

Other than that it looks good.

Futureproofing, may SLI in the future. Did not like the price point of modular and opted for semi. with good cable management would it make that much of a difference?

Eh, for that much money I'd get a better cooler than an EVO 212 (maybe the H60 2013 version). I'd also probably opt for a 7970 instead of the 770. I don't know much about the PSU, but if it has a good manufacturer then I think it's a good buy even if overkill (since the other store prices lead me to believe it's a good price).

Unless you plan to SLI or do massive overclocking you won't need a 850w power supply (Also that brand is very questionable) in fact that system as is won't draw more then 500w TOTAL.

In fact even with a 650w PSU you could still SLI and do a mild OC comfortably. Also that rams heat spreaders sit rather high and may create a clearance issue with your Hyper 212 cooler.

CPU is fine, motherboard is fine. No problems with the case (It's the same one I have)

That build is very nice, but I have 2 minor tweaking thoughts.

-That PSU is seriously overkill. Even if you SLI another 770 in there, it only estimates 654W usage. It doesn't hurt anything, but I'd get a 750W 80 Plus Bronze PSU instead.

-If you have (or will have soon) a 1440p monitor, a 120 Hz monitor, or multiple monitors, I think it's worth the extra $50 to get the 4GB version of the same card you have. Pushing more pixels takes more VRAM.

This. You gave it almost 2x what it needs. I'd grab a 500 or a 550 modular unit.

Guys, 850W is indeed overkill but if it's quality unit, $90 for a modular PSU is not far from what he was looking at anyway.

So, quad core non-HT CPUs are still considered to be good choices for new gaming PC builds? Good to know.

Not really unless you have serious cable OCD. Looks like a good build then.
