    It is more than enough. That PSU could feed a system with the 1080 and still have plenty of overhead for overclocking.

    Toss that 3GB 1060. I would instead buy the 6GB 1060 Windforce OC.

    Why such a high end board? The GFX card you chose is at odds with the 6850 and the board. Ohhhhhhh. Looks like some editing, CAD, rendering or something other than gaming has the pole position with this build. What's the main task(s) for this build?
  3. This is meant as a video editing build. Not really concerned about GPU at the moment. Helping a friend build his PC and he already bought the 1060, the day before they announced the Ti and dropped prices on a few GPUs. Thanks for the input people, very much appreciated!
  4. I told him about buying better stuff now so in a couple of years or so he can easily upgrade to what he needs.
  5. Well personally for a video editing build I'd be looking at the cheapest ryzen 1700, massive saving , just about everyone who has one is running it at 3800mhz easily.
