    First ever gaming desktop, slightly over budget but it's the best I think I could put together. What do you think, any changes or suggestions? Is 650w enough?

    Also remember that if a psu says 850, that's its peak power and not its normal operating power. Always leave head room when it comes to psu's.

    I found an EVGA 850w on sale at newegg for the same price. I would ditch windows 10, and use windows 7 of course. Also you could spend just a bit more, and get a 960 evo instead of the 850.

    FWIW I just used the PSU calculator for my Desktop setup and it said 730W. When I'm stress testing the machine at 5.1 I measure 455 W.

    I would go for an EVGA 850W PSU, I have had decent luck with mine.

    Solid build. Not sure if this would be in your budget, but given that you have a 1080, I might try looking for a G-sync monitor. I'm using the monitor linked below:

    Also, as an aside, prices for parts (RAM and GPU's especially) is insane right now for average consumers like us T_T
