Compatible?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am in the process of buying a new computer consisting of the following parts:

Asus P8Z68-V PRO Intel Z68 S1155 Motherboard http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-p8z68-v-pro-intel-z68-s-1155-pci-e-20-%28x16%29-ddr3-2200%28oc%29-sata-6gb-s-raid-atx-hdmi

Intel CPU Core i5 2500K http://www.scan.co.uk/products/intel-core-i5-2500k-unlocked-1155-sdy-bridge-quadcore-33ghz-gpu-850mhz-95w-retail-plusfree-game

1 GB EVGA GTX460 SSC http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-evga-gtx-460-sscplusbackplate-3900mhz-gddr5-gpu-850mhz-shader-clock-1700mhz-336-coresplusmafia-i

OCZ 500W ModXStream Pro Power Supply [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001GLFD4U/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE"]OCZ 500W ModXStream Pro Power Supply - UK: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories[/ame]

G-Skill 4GBXM Ripjaws X [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004JLWQSK/ref=pd_luc_mri?ie=UTF8&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE"]G-Skill 4GBXM Ripjaws X for Intel Sandybridge Platforms DDR3 PC12800 1600MHz 4GB Kit: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories[/ame]

Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB WD5002AALX Hard drive http://www.scan.co.uk/products/500gb-western-digital-wd5002aalx-caviar-black-sata-6gb-s-7200rpm-32mb-cache-35-hdd

I was wondering whether the memory is compatible with the motherboard, and also if the PSU has enough wattage that it could run games such as Bad Company 2.

Thanks,

Mike

I've been using G.Skill ram for 5+ years in both intel and amd builds. Never ONCE had any problems thumb.gif

I would recommend getting a 600w+ power supply just to be on the safe side, just make sure that it's

1) Modular
2) Single 12v Rail with over 50A

cheers.gif Other than that great build for gaming!

Ignore this.

The power supply you picked out is more than good enough unless you plan to add another later. It's actually surprisingly good quality.

Then go for a 600W power supply. Just find a few in your price range and we'll tell you which we suggest. smile.gif

You're from the UK? I seem to have missed that.

sites I use:
www.aria.co.uk (generally good prices and pretty reasonable customer service)
www.overclockers.co.uk (postage is often expensive + customer service isn't always great, but they often have some great deals)
www.scan.co.uk (good prices and a great selection of goods)
www.novatech.co.uk (smaller site who isn't always up to date on current prices, but keeps a good stock and offers free shipping on purchases over £50)


There are a few more. Of course there are also:
http://www.shop.bt.com/category/storage/11003 (sometimes good prices)
http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/components-upgrades-324-c.html (You found this one already)
http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/computer-accessories/components-upgrades-159-c.html (much the same as Curries)

Of course, never forget www.amazon.co.uk

The first ones listed are the ones I generally use as they generally have the best deals. There are a few more I trust too, but I've never used dabs. They *should* be fine though.


Overall, either supply is good. They're practically identical in terms of performance, so just get whichever you think is the better deal. The ModXStream is modular (which will probably make it better to work with). Otherwise get the StealthXStream. Supposedly, it's a 700W supply downgraded to pass the Bronze 80+ test.
(According to a review site, anyway).


tl;dr: Get either.
