Build Stress

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I came here a few days ago and I got some great advice on my build and decided on the following:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/KWW

However, since I can't seem to ever stop researching I've found quite a few people unhappy with their 570s. This made me think I should just gun for a 580 as they don't seem to be burning out on people. HOWEVER, the only way I can see fitting a 580 into my budget is by removing the SSD from my build. Additionally, I figure if I get a 580 I need to get a 1200w PSU incase I ever want to SLI them. So now I've come up with

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NqW

But that build doesn't really make me comfortable either. Basically, I am just having anxiety over this whole thing. I've never built my own computer nor dropped this amount of cash on one. I want the thing to be stable, future proof, and just kind of f*cking cool. So I come to you overclock community to help me.

stick with the 570? drop the SSD? stable system?

You don't need a 1200watt PSU for a single or two GTX580s. A quality 850 watt will suffice.

The vast majority of people who buy 570's have no problems. The reason that it seems like a lot of people have problems is because usually the people who post about 570's are the ones who have an issue with them (i.e., people don't post saying that their 570 is working great).

What are you going to be using this rig for? If it's going to be multi-purpose, then I would probably stick with the SSD and 570. If you're going to be strictly gaming, you could either stick with what you have or drop the SSD for the 580. SSD really doesn't do much for gaming, but then again either a 570 or 580 will run 95% of games out today at max settings completely fine.

Also, like above poster mentioned, a quality 850W PSU will run GTX580 SLI just fine. Check out Corsair's TX/AX/HX series or Antec's Signature/High Current Gamer (HCG) series.
