New to the forum, need feedback on a custom build

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody, I just joined the site because reading forum discussions had really helped me with my custom build. I was wondering if I could get some feedback on my 900 dollar gaming rig.
Btw, everything has already been purchased and is being shipped to my house, however, my motherboard and graphics card I got from a local store. I payed 900 dollars for everything since I mixed and matched the places I bought from, I'm just showing these on newegg because its convenient.


My case:

Power supply

My processor:

Disc drive:

Any feedback would be nice, however, my main question is Will the 650w power supply be enough to power this setup, (I am also going to overclock the GPU from its 900mhz stock to 1040mhz) Also, I was planning on OCing my 2500k to around 4.3-4.7 ghz.) I was thinking this would be enough for now, but I understand that if I want to go SLI that it might not be possible with that wattage.

Just to let everyone know, I'm only 15 and this is the first time I have built a computer, so if I made a stupid decision with a part, go easy on me tongue.gif

The build looks great and the power supply is more than enough to power the build. It might be pushing it a bit but I would say that the PSU might even be able to support SLI of those cards.

DO NOT get OCZ power supply. Corsair, some Antecs, and Seasonic should be what your looking for.

And yes, that laptop memory won't work lol.
