Just ordered my parts for new PC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been waiting over a year to build a new PC.
Tonight i finally threw everything in my cart and hit the "order" button.

Before I list the new parts, I'll list what I'm using out of my current rig.
AMD Phenom II X4 955
Logitech G15
Microsoft Sidewinder
Samsung F3 1TB

and here's what I ordered.
CASE- Corsair Special Edition White 600T

MOTHERBOARD- Asus Crosshair IV Formula

GRAPHICS CARD(S)- 2 x XFX HD 6850 (for Crossfire)

SSD- OCZ Solid 3 Sata III 120GB

STORAGE DRIVE- Samsung Spinpoint f4 2TB

RAM- 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600

POWER SUPPLY- Cougar 850W continuous modular PSU

MONITOR- Gateway 24" led lcd HD with 2ms response

BAY FAN ADAPTER- Lian Li 3x5.25" 120mm fan module

I also ordered some other random stuff as well. Single sleeving, optical drive, some Xigmatek 120mm fans.

Let me know what you guys think! Any suggestions and/or constructive criticism is welcome.

The list looks solid there. However, if you made this thread before you ordered, i think people would suggest you another PSU. There are better PSUs in that same price range +/- few $ tho like the Corsair AX850 for $162.99 AR ($13 more than the PSU above) but is very good and reliable as well. By no mean the PSU you ordered is a bad one, but it's just not as good and Corsair's warranty service is top-notch.

I kinda jumped the nade on that one. I mean I really liked the colors of it. Really goes with the red/ black/ white theme I'm looking for. Plus when I ordered it, it had a $25 promo code AND a $20 MIR.

ok there are issues with the ati 6 series cards and very bad driver support alot of people are having hell with the crossfire with them and also are having alot of issues with them going out also over a die issue with the boards and yes that power supply looks ok but if going for gaming i always stick to the 1k rule 1000watts meens got extra and will likely never push to limits of the psu or get in the range of it giving out bad power clean crisp power will allow for alot longer life of your internals i went skimpy on my psu once and ended up toasting my ram graphics and mobo over it so beware
