Here's my build as it is right now
And here's a possible upgrade plan for it (I'll upgrade the GPU and RAM later, possibly in a couple years)
Anyways my plan is to add a more capable PSU around summer so I can keep up with more power hungry GPUs which will come out later and to add an aftermarket CPU cooler so I can do overclocking. Would 850W be overkill even for the next generation of AMD's high-end GPUs? I'm thinking by the time I need to upgrade my GPU AMD would have come out with an HD 8000 or 9000 series (I'm just putting the 7970 as a placeholder, I'll probably change it when AMD comes out with their 8000 series).
Yeah my Dad doesn't want me to do any of this until I actually need to upgrade the GPU because its working fine right now. Its just that I want to get the CPU cooler so I can do overclocking and so I can get the PSU and cable management out of the way, which you can see is haphazard in my build.
