Okay, so currently I am using a Corsair RM850 PSU, with an i5 4670k @ 3.4 (stock) and an R9 290. Tomorrow I am selling my i5 4670k and motherboard to a friend, and buying a Pentium G3528 and an MSI Z97 Gaming 5 motherboard (no money out of pocket). I am also selling the R9 290 to a friend for $300, which is where I'm getting the extra money from. (and I really don't mind down grading this card because I do NOT like it, and probably won't buy AMD again) The reason being is I am not content with the way my first build turned out, and I need some money for this month's car and insurance payment, so I thought why not downgrade since I don't even play that many graphicically intense games, and I don't like my build. Anyway, back on topic, I will be purchasing a GTX 750 Ti to hold me out until tax returns next year. I have a spare Corsair CX600M. Should I use my RM850 with:
Pentium G3528 (overclocked as far as I can get it) --- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO --- GTX 750 Ti (also overclocking as far as I can) --- MSI Z97 Gaming 5 --- 1x8GB Kingston HyperX RAM @ 1600Mhz --- Corsair Carbide Series Spec-03 Mid-Tower (will have all fan slots filled) --- And I will later be putting a GTX 960/970 in, and an i5-4690k or Broadwell if it's out, and overclocking them all the way as well.
Or should I use my CX600M and just sell the RM850 and maybe get $100 out of it to shave some money out of my build? My other option is store away the RM850 till the i5 and GTX 960/970 come in, but even then I'd feel like it's overkill.
