Tips on build a somewhat gaming rig at max +/- 8000 NOK (~900 USD)

ValckThe only thing I find out of place is the PSU; 850W seems a bit over the top.

....
Probably nothing to be overly concerned about, but PSUs are usually most efficient when they are under about 50-75% of rated load, and fall off on either side of that.

PSUs these days don't fall off with the efficiency below 50% usage. This is the end of 90s and early 2000 where PSUs had that. Technology has changed. 850W might be a bit overkill indeed, but more headroom is always nice.

great video about PSUs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJ_VV3UjEBY
