Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P67X-UD3-B3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($107.86 @ Newegg)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($41.95 @ B&H)
Hard Drive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($60.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2GB Video Card ($507.55 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Antec 650W ATX12V Power Supply ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $1038.32 Shipped and after MIR $1008.32
You have a SLi supported board which can overclock that 25ook to ~4.5Ghz and a 8GB 1600Mhz a solid case (you can exchange it with NZXT GAMMA if looks does not matter to you ) 500GB HDD 7200RPM rolleyes.gif
and if have a MC around then replace the
Motherboard : ASRock Extreme 3 Gen 3
PSU : with a 750 watts PSU
and you are good thumb.gif

But that 650 psu wont do sli if he upgades down the road, see about a used psu, at least 850 or higher, the 680 is power hungry. You could get some cheapr ram, or just go 4gb and upgrade to better or hight ram later.

The 680 only needs 195w (so say 200w to keep math easy). Two in SLI are 400w. That leaves 250w for the rest of the system....that's plenty.

Even when he starts to oc and adds fans?

If he does oc that is?

IMO, I dislike saping out PSU's, you right, but cutting it close, rather not have that PSU on or around a full load, that can stress it out and produce alot of heat.

Plus something are OK to buy used off here or Cl, and save a lil cash.

a quality 850w PSU could easily run Tri-SLI 680's, even after the system is OC'd.

looks like he'd be better off with an 850

He is clearly on a very limited budget and suggesting an 850W for a single 680 is outright mad.

Lol. 200 * 3 = 600w + 150w(heavily oc'd CPU) = 750w. That leaves 100W for accessories and OC'ing the GPU's. (bare in mind without changing the GPU voltage, the TDP won't change)

EDIT: Also, the PSU God speaks:

here PSU calculator results (Click to show)
375
2 SSD's 4 RAMs 7 LED Case fans i5 overclocked to 4.5 with 1.4v (i have never seen any overclock their i5 with such voltages for 4.5Ghz but to be on a safer side biggrin.gif) 1 HDD , 1 ODD, and all this when all components are at 100% load which is never possible while gaming biggrin.gif
