more power ?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Working on a new build,

Set up thus far

MB = Gigabyte UD5

Case = Cooler Master Storm Enforcer

CPU = AMD 8-core FX-8150 3.6G

CPU Cooling = Thermalright Silver Arrow

RAM = 16 GB Kingston Hyper X 1600 CL9 240 Pin

OS System = Windows 7 Professional 64 bit with Virtual Windows added

Power Supply = Cooler Master GX 750 Watts

Hard Drive = SSD Kingston Hyper X 120 GB SATA 3 (for OS only)

2 more hard drives of at least 500 GB for programs / games / storage .

CD/DVD = Asus

Video Card = Gigabyte HD 7970 Ram 3 GB (Has not been ordered yet)



Will the 750-watt power supply be sufficient for this build?

The 750-Watt power supply was purchased with the intent of using a different video card.

Now I am planning on installing the Gigabyte HD 7970

Thanks !!

Bobby

More than enough, the PSU choice is poor though...

Some very good choices there mixed with some very poor ones... 7970, Silver Arrow, interesting case choice as well... but why Bulldozer!?.. it's complete and utter trash.. if you haven't bought it already go with a SandyBridge/IvyBridge platform.. get a Marvell based SSD as well...

if I had to do over I would have gotten a different case as the kingwin rack and tray are to long and hit the MB power connector. My present set up has 2 rack and trays that way I have a instant back up if the first OS gets hit with a bug or virus

Then at a later time I can nuke and pave the infected HD

SandyBridge/IvyBridge ? not familiar with that name OK I see you are referring to Intel CPU

that is what I am referring to the case is a cooler master storm enforcer. the 4 exposed bays are all 5.25 which the kingwin rack with removable tray can fit with adapters but the rack is to long as the back of the rack hits the power cable that attaches to the MB.

I see, I'm confident you can find shorter racks that would fit without any issues... check Icy Dock.

Uhh. Why Bulldozer? Not good. Bad. I personally suggest the TX750 for the power unit.

I second the Corsair TX750, but will also say that the Silverstone Strider series power supplies are pretty awesome as well.

On a side note: saying Bulldozer is utter trash, is just blind ranting. It depends on its use- it is a very capable processor in things that scale across that many threads.

still, I believe the speed per each core is slower than that of SB. Just saying. I may be wrong. I'm not saying BD is trash, just that I would personally get SB or IB smile.gif
