Hi.

I am going to build a pc for the first time, and im abit uncertain on some components and could use some input from experienced builders and people with good component knowledge.

The setup of my pc will be something like this:

NZXT phantom fulltower.
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3p
AMD FX-8350
Corsair H100I
Seasonic M12II EVO 850W
Gigabyte radeon R9 290x Windforce 3x
Corsair Vengeance PRO DDR3 1600Mhz 16GB (2x8GB)
Corsair Force Series LX SSD 256GB (also adding a 1TB 7200rpm disc)

Then it comes to my questions:

-Will 850W be enough?

-Is the seasonic M12 a decent psu?

-Anyone got experience with the R9 290x Windforce 3x? (its on sale so price is about the same as a sapphire tri-x 290 vapor-x)

-Is there anything you guys would recommend changing? (im on the edge of my budget tho)


PS. sorry if my english is abit bad, its my 2nd language :)

Nice, you recon a 750w would be enough aswell? (corsair CS750M is on sale atm and is about 60 dollars cheaper than the one ive picked)
