Best possible gaming builds @ $500, $900, $1500 10/11 - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Yes it can.


And it will never hit that much in gaming.

And good quality PSUs can handle a bit more than their rated continuous power draw, and can certainly handle any peak spikes.

You've got $1500 to spend on a computer, and you put an ASRock motherboard in it?

I'd rather spend $1500 on a stripper.

a good psu should be-able to put out 125% of its rated max

EDIT: Theres nothing wrong with this generatino of AsRock mobo's, they have better price to features than anything else.

Quality 600W PSUs can handle 601W no problem. They don't magically blow up at 600.00000001W. You will also never hit the same power draw while gaming, the focus of this guide, as in benchmarks or folding or other programs like that, which is why I posted the Crysis one as well.

Not that its a bad brand, but when you have a $1500 budget, thats usually not the board you choose.

This. I just built a machine for my brother, and he's using a high-end 500w that's really rated for 550, maybe even more. And that's @ 100% load, which will never never happen during gaming.
Puny Power!

And again for the $1500 budget, the PSU is overkill. A 600W PSU can power those cards.
XK 400W PSU is a better value than the Rosewill Green 430W. cheaper and more efficient. not really 80 bronze but whatever... 5 eggs after 75 reviews is very good

the PSU in the $1500 build offers expandability for future cards like a 3rd HD 6970 or 6990 + 6950 tri-fire

updated $900 system.



one more thing, i didn't really care about brand nearly as much as newegg ratings, even if they aren't the best reviews. i wouldn't care if a PSU got a 10 on JG if it had a 3 egg rating after 50 some reviews.

I would much rather trust someone that know what theyre talking about and can actually measure the performance of PSUs, such as this and this, than Newegg reviews. Its not a bad PSU, theres certainly worse, but you can get better for the money.
