    Been planning a new rig for a couple weeks now. Wanted to get anyone's input.

    Budget is < $700. Luckily, I get to reuse my ssd, hard drive, and memory.
    Also, not planning on OCing anytime soon. Will upgrade from the stock cpu cooler if I decide to in the future.

    That psu would've been sufficient without overclocking, but I ended up putting a 600w in instead.

    You'll be surprised how efficient Haswell + 900 series GPUs are.
