If you want to stay with the same brands and colour then for your ram it's worth spending a little extra on these:

Or you're willing to spend a little more:

I had a pair of the above Corsair RAM for a long time and can't fault it one bit. It never let me down.

For a PSU:

Both mean spending more but still within your budget. That's the best i could find on that site within your budget.

Swapped out the ram. While you were posting, I was browsing for a power supply and was wondering if it was worth it to go a little cheaper with this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx600

If there is one thing you should NOT cut costs on,  it's a PSU. Get the best and most reliable. If that doesn't work your whole pc rig won't. Take my word for it.

That would be fine for what you want.

Swapping what he had with a more power hungry GPU and a lower wattage PSU makes no sense. With the rest of his setup and the R9 380 he's going to be pushing it at 500W.

The GTX 950 is fine for what he wants and he will benefit more with the higher wattage PSU.

Forgot to add my setup to my post:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/tHyDrH

With the exception of 2 of the Hardrives and Keyboard & Mouse I have all of it and installed. Just need to do the cabling and install the OS and other Software etc...

Not sure about the mouse as i already have a Logitech Performance MX mouse which is brilliant. But can't help but think i'd be better of with a wired mouse for gaming.

A more powerful gpu (with more vram to), that setup wont even push near 600w, the cpu and gpu combined max 380 maybe under full load.

I ran a way more power hungry setup on my antec vp 550w psu, R9 390 and an Xeon e3 1231v3 with no issues at all.

if you really want go for a 600w, but for that rig 500w is fine honestly.

Guess I shall start this back up due TMF on PC coming (one day). Trying to save enough EXTRA money to get my previously stated rig. However, I may alter it due to some parts either not being sold anymore, or simply because I found a cheaper alternative that works just as well (if not better).
