Is there some reason you chose cl 11 ram?
I see cl 9 ram in the same price area.
The perf difference may amount to squat but.....it's your bucks.

That gpu is a 200w unit.
Given any thought to the psu?

Thanks for the quick answer.

I have a Seasonic ECO 500W psu, is that enough?

I'm going with no.

At 200 Watts the +12V rail would need at least 200/12 Amperes. But you know to have 50% reserve so 200/6 = 33 Amperes and this PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151024 if that's it has a paltry 17 Ampere rail.

It might be fine to get the machine up but I fear it is not good enough for the gear selected.

I'll second the "no"

With that gpu and gaming.....round numbers gets me to a 600w quality single rail unit.

Bigger won't hurt.
Your going to be pulling some serious power over long periods of time.
You don't want that psu to get hot/over worked and go wonky.

Is the Seasonic ECO 600W psu will be enough?

(NT) Does it have 30+ Amperes on the +12 Rail?

Shop for a quality "single" rail psu.

I don't know what country your in but that Eco thing seems to be a 200/240v input.

I don't really know what you mean by "single" rail psu, can u explain it?
I'm buying a case that the shop says it comes with a Seasonic ECO 600W psu.
Is that good?

Sorry
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 18, 2013 2:19 AM PDT

But at this point I fear for your PC. It met the needs and then you ask this.

Sadly this means to me you may be in over your head. Is there some buddy that works with you on this?

Confusion
by bob b / June 18, 2013 2:27 AM PDT
In reply to: I don't really know

The links I'm seeing show that psu to be a dual rail unit with 18 amps per rail.

Your link seems to show a single rail unit with 46 amps.

Perhaps ask the shop what it is your buying.
I'm wondering if this unit is made different for different countries.
