New Rig. Thoughts ?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So this is my very first build and by no means going to be the last. Here is what I sourced out in terms of components and below is the list. My main goal is to have a computer that can run CAD software (Solidworks, Autodesk) and simulation (Matlab) without a problem. I would consider myself a light gamer so gaming is not the main purpose. Anyways, let me know what you think and I am willing to to stay within +/- $100 (All prices are in canadian dollars).

- Cooler Master HAF 932.................$149.99

- Intel core i5 2500K......................$229.99

I have no idea about the psu. I just selected one which I was sure would have enough juice and I think I will need it if I decide to go with gtx 480 sli in the future when the prices drop.

The PSU is a huge massive overkill, and is not efficient either. All you need is 500w.
Go for something like Antec earthwatts EA-550 or any corsair 500w.

Otherwise nice rig.

So you think even if I clock the i5 2500K a 600-650W psu would be sufficient?

Almost sure that 650W would be pretty much enough, if u dont do massive overvolt on your sandy bridge

Even 650W is overkill. A quality 650W unit would be enough for your system, plus a second GTX 460, AND substantial overclocks on the CPU and GPUs.

It has been recommended that I should get the geforce 560 over the geforce 460. There isn't much price difference. Anyone else seconds this ?

560 Ti is a benefit also, a 600w psu would be enough for gtx 460 sli... With OCed cpu.
