Facepalm. Fixed again. I swear it's right this time.

Change that PSU to an antec, corsair, cooler master, or rosewill (stick to their single rail models)

Really, OCZ is a good brand and all, but the whole 'Xtreme' were not good power supplies. The 500w rating is not where it's rails max necessarily, but where the voltage ripple passes outside of allowed ATX spec. Anywhere past 400w being drawn from that rhing will be highly unstable and shorten the life of your components.

@Foothead

I appreciate the concern, but my card is indeed already a 4850 :P.

Anyways, for the PSU I was thinking either:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371016

The first if corsair makes good on their rebates, the second if not. Any thoughts on these?

*facepalm*. For some reason, I thought you had a 4650.

both of those PSUs look good. I would personally go with the antec. You really do not need 650w for that system.

One more idea, what are some thoughts on this mobo compared to the one previously discussed. I heard that the lack of mosfet cooling on the other one might be a problem for overclocking?

ASUS M4A79XTD

I also just found this mobo that might be worth consideration as well

MSI 870A-G54

EDIT: Additionally, maybe looking at getting ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro instead
