Smile Build: Snow Storm

Hey Guys,
I am starting a new build during July this year, and I wanted to hear what you had to say about my hardware choices. This is my first PC build and I am very excited about it. I am already fairly knowledgeable (in my opinion) about computer hardware. I want this build to go as smooth as possible. If you guys have any opinions on the build, I would love to hear them. I am most likely going to buy most of the stuff from TigerDirect, or Amazon (NewEgg is also a possibility). Also, I would like to hear your opinions on the name. Thanks!!!

drop the psu to a corsair ax 850w. 1000w is overkill other than that it looks good mate

AX850 for the PSU will be a better choice.

Snow Storm

Sorry, I forgot to mention I plan on doing a 2 way SLI in the future. Do you still think it will do fine even in SLI?

Thanks

There is no 2 way SLi configuration that the AX850 wont handle.

I would still get the AX850. I would recommend NOT get a 1000w PSU that cost less than an 850w. Also Corsair is one if the if not the best rated PSU manufacturer.

Still go with the Corsair PSU, dude. They make some of the best PSUs out there and are renowned for their quality PSUs.
