What do you think of this build?

I am building this gaming computer and wanted some feedback on it.

Case - Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl

Motherboard - GigabyteGA-990FXA-UD3

CPU - AMD 8350 Vishera 4.0 Ghz

CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

HDD - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

SSD - Samsun 840 EVO 120GB

PSU - EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 G 80 Plus Gold

RAM - G. Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2x4GB)

GPU - Using the same GPU for now- Radeon HD 6670- Want to upgrade to GTX 780TI <---Should be good for a long time.

OS - Windows 7 64-bit

I have everything ordered but still waiting for the SSD and the HDD to come in.  As I mentioned I am waiting for another month or two to get the GTX 780Ti as I just do not have the funding right now.  But please let me know what you think.

Most of it is good.

I would change:

Motherboard: Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0.  It has digital VRMs, and is of high quality.

PSU: The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 G 80 Plus Gold PSU is pretty crap with its +12V rails.  I would go with this if you planned on SLI/Crossfire: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750bbefx

Can you explain to me what VRMs.  Also I thought that EVGA made quality products?

VRMs stand for "Voltage Regulator Modules".  These are the electronics on the motherboard that manage the power going around the board.  If these get fried, your board no longer works.  Digital VRMs allow for more precise and easier overclocks.  These may also be referred to as the "power delivery system".  Also, as much as I like Gigabyte, that board has quite a history of problems.

EVGA makes quality products, yes.  However, their SuperNova line is quite flaky.  Most PSUs are actually rebrands of other companies' products.  Corsair, XFX, EVGA, and other brands all rebrand PSUs.  Technicall, EVGA didn't make this product.

 If you see the newegg page:


+12V1@20A, +12V2@20A, +12V3@20A, +12V4@20A

It has 4 weak +12V rails.  This is not what you want to look for.  You want to look for a strong single +12V rail.
