    Also the difference between a K and non-K is like $15. Just get the 7600K, you don't have to overclock but you'll have the option if you decide to do so.

    Could be a lot of things but most likely candidates are the motherboard and the PSU. Followed by RAM, HDD, onboard video etc.
    You have to test or take it somewhere they can test the system.

    WD and Hitachi are generally reliable but with HDDs it's pretty much luck of the draw. You can get a 2TB for $60/70 from newegg. Unfortunately most of these have only 1 year warranty. Something like...

    For gaming the Intel build will be faster, as 260X will be much faster than the integrated graphics of A10-7850K. Also I calculated your mobo+cpu combo to be $182 for that build, not $172. A cheaper...

    For the board I'd go for an FM2+ socket (e.g. https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/A78MA) . I know it may not be that important but it will make future CPU upgrades easier.
    You can still put the FM2...

    You can run this machine easily with a 850W. As yojo2 says you can actually run with a good 600-650W PSU. But I'd go with a 850W.
    And going for a 1000W isn't a bad idea if you believe you may add a...

    No, that depends on the efficiency of the unit. There are devices that will show how much it draws from the wall. Or if you want

    You have a system with no CPU ? Nice! I'll assume you're using a 65W Core. At your typical workload your desktop will be using ~120W.
    Could be higher if you're OCing your CPU. During gaming you'll...

    First, we're talking about a GTX590 and a CPU running at 4.8 GHz not the above system.

    But we're not. He already has a SLI system. GTX590 is a SLI card. Plus he has a CPU OCed to 4.8GHz. A GTX590 system with an OCed CPU generally pulls between 480-520W from the wall under load. Even...

    I'd go for a 600/650W. Especially considering you can go for another SLI in future. 430W is too low for this system.

    You can change this. Type "about:config" in the address bar. Type "trim" in the filter box. You'll see "browser.urlbar.trimURLs", make the value "false" (double clicking works).
