My first build - 2600k - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Sorry for double post but I need a quick answer. I am going to hold off on the GPU until the end of Sept. early Oct. because my girlfriend and I are getting a house smile.gif So I could use all the money I could get, but I still want to make this build.

Anyway, can I use my current PSU (Thermaltake 430W) for this system:

i7 2600k
ASRock p67 Extreme 4 (B3)
Radeon HD 4850
8GB DDR3 G Skill Sniper
4 Case Fans
1 HDD 7200 RPM
1 Sata ODD

Newegg calculates about 428W for that, is that pushing it too close? Or will I be okay unitl my upgrade?

If you are a gamer then get the gpu now and an SSD when you have the money. Also, I would highly recommend getting a modular psu because cable management is so much easier and you will be happier with it. Also, I would much rather have this HAF 932 for the same price as the NZXT Phantom.

Update::::

Decided to go with a different cooler and PSU: the H60 and Corsair TX750 v2 are in my possession now, ordered last week.

Video cards I'm going to go with a single 560 Ti for now, SLI later on.

I actually contacted Corsair and will be obtaining special pricing from their website thanks to my employer =].

Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz DDR3 4GB x 2 = $42

And Corsair 600T White = $101

Don't know what I'm going to do with my sig rig, would really like to get rid of it.

560 Ti is a great choice good pricepoint. Should have got the HX650 its modlar and at a good price.

Haha I had an XPS 410 too, with the e6400.
