    Better efficiency normally means better build.

    Yes, but to get a better efficiency you have to put better quality part's into the PSU.

    Never skimp on a good PSU, it is one part that doesn't have to be replaced in time. I would also go with 16GB of ram. It is pretty cheap these days, and will take care of you for a while.

    Also, unless you are a mac user and only look at things surface-deep, I would look into a non-glossy monitor.

    I was looking into 16g but from my research 8g is enough. Ill probably add another 8 in time its not too big of a deal

    OHHHHHH HELL NO!!:D

    Some silver and gold rated PSUs are in reality worse than bronze rated one. A sticker on a PSU does not mean that a PSU is good. To know if a PSU is good you should read reviews. If you can't read reviews (like at a shop), take a known brand and verify the weight. A light PSU is an empty PSU :laugh:.

    BTW, the SeaSonic M12II 620 is a very good PSU.

    PS: I really like the SSD chosen.

    You mean reviews where they send the reviewer cherry picked caps and the consumer version is vastly different?

    Well, yes. If all reviewers PSUs are cherry picked caps, we can still see which PSU is better than others...

    IMO dual rail is not a problem since a dual rail PSU can be very good and the majority of PSU are dual rail so... There is also single rail PSU that sux so anyways...
