~€950 build, thoughts?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Here's the list:


At first I took a cheaper motherboard & lower PSU, but I eventually decided to buy better models so I could add a 2nd GPU and have my rig more futureproof.

I'm assuming this PSU will be powerfull enough to run two gpu's in SLI?
If you have any other thoughts, comments or suggestions feel free to post.

No, the PSU isn't enough for SLI, or atleast not safely. Get a 700-850W one. I don't know what the HDD model is from looking at that picture, but I recommend the Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB, it's a great drive.

Should be fine with that. Just don't get an F1.

Also, the PSU is actually a 750W. The 600W you read is the category they put this PSU into.

In other words, i'm actually buying this PSU:

I'm assuming it is enough then?

What are you talking about? GTX 560 SLI should be able to run on a quality 600w, I think you can even get away with using 550.

edit: also check out www.power4pc.be they're slightly cheaper and have a good service.
and if you can't find a product on there website ,corsair vengeance for example, send them a e-mail asking for it and they will tell you how much it will costs etc (most of the time they do sell it, it's just not on their site)

The Antec TP-650 would be able to handle dual 560Ti's and your setup easily. You don't need a 750W unit.

Even this Corsair modular would do:
http://www.alternate.be/html/product...r+dan+600+Watt

Or standard for even less:
http://www.alternate.be/html/product...r+dan+600+Watt

XFX Semi-Modular unit:
http://www.alternate.be/html/product...r+dan+600+Watt

The Corsair and XFX PSUs linked actually have Seasonic internals in them.

I've always been told by people who built their own PCs, or build them professionally, always have atleast a 700W PSU for an SLI or Crossfire.

It's overkill for this build and this guy doesn't have a massive budget, he's better of with a cheaper, lower wattage psu.
And you shouldn't generalise xfire & sli like that, would you honestly get atleast a 700w psu for someone with 5770's in xfire?
