PSU and PC-Build, Help me out brothers! (n_n)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, a friend of mine asked me to build a PC and I did a quick list. But I am wondered if that power supply can handle this system? [CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W 80 PLUS]

This is a quickly arranged list and most likely components will be edited. Can you help me to improve this list, please? Thanks a lot ! o(^_^)o

- AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition AM3 3.2GHz
- MSI 870-C45 AMD 770/SB710 AM3 DDR3 1600MHz (O.C.)
- [x4] KINGSTON 2GB Hyperx Genesis DDR3 1600MHz CL9
- SAMSUNG 1TB 32MB SATA2 7200 RPM HDD
- SAPPHIRE HD6950 GDDR5 1GB 256Bit AMD Radeon DX11
- THERMALTAKE VM100M1W2Z V6 BLACX EDITION
- * * * CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W 80 PLUS * * *

Kid asks me to build him a gaming PC about 1000$ (low) budget
I can't order shipping from outside.

Guys, thanks a lot for reading !!! I don't get profit for building that PC.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005 i would get this corsair 650

and you wont need 8gb for gaming, 4gb is enough,,

BTW, if his budget is 1000$, you can build SB..

400W is pushing it a little. A decent 500W PSU is ample for that rig, or a 550W/600W for some overclocking headroom.

OCZ Fatal1ty 550W is a decent unit.

The CX400 is fine for one 6950.

Hello and thanks for your replies, I am trying to update list with Intel i5 2500k but that costs really much more. Because I live outside of States/Europe

Is there a huge difference between i5 2500k and Phenom II x4 955 ? If so I will try to drop 6950 and go for a more suitable one.

For under $1000 you can build the following system which would get better gaming results;

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-072-_-Product
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...A-Z68X-UD3P-B3
RAM: G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-277-_-Product
GPU: MSI Twin FrozrII GTX480 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-526-_-Product
PSU: Corsair CX500 V2 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139027
HDD: Samsung F3 1TB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ung%20F3%201tb
Case: Coolermaster HAF922 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119197

Comes in at about $960

So if you are open to more suggestions, than I would highly recommend an Intel Sandy Bridge system. They are the kings for gaming atm.

EDIT: If you want to lower the price a bit, change the GPU back to the HD6950

The CX400 is more than enough for an HD6950.
