Rosewill is kind of like Diablotek when it comes to PSUs. You never know when they will give up on you due to capacitor failure.

You're four years out of date. Rosewill learned their lesson and have started selling decent stuff.

The newest Rosewill units such as the Green series, HIVE series and Capstone series are all ridiculously good in quality and price.  The HIVE series in particular is based on the same internal hardware used by the OCZ ZS series, which has been seen by reviews to outperform (with the OCZ ZS 650W able to push up to ~780W before having to shut down protectively - yes, there are protective features).

This is my build so far.

PSU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139031
MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072

RAM:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147096 OOS currently, if it does not come in stock before march 6th, I will go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231416

Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236059
Case: USED Corsair 500r
HDD: ?? ( need something around 200-300gb
GPU: 7950, not sure which brand, I was thinking the ASUS DCII..

I will be skipping the SSD for now, til I find a better deal on one.



My intentions for this computer will be used to play BF3, Dota 2, school work, and just browsing.

I will not xfire, but I will in the future OC, but nothing extreme.

EDIT: I'll be buying the 2500k from ncix, but I will keep everything else. I trust both OCZ and Corsair products, but I rather go with Corsair. As go for monitor I will also keep it the same, the lower the overall cost the better.

I just need help on GPU and I'm still looking for a solid HDD ~250 - 300gb.

Not sure if I should get the 7950 or 6970.

If you can, get the SAPPHIRE one. It has a very good OC. HDD is pretty easy; just get a WD Caviar Blue.
