Is this build fine ? *new to forum*

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have never really posted on a forum before so forgive me if this is in the wrong spot.

I am wondering what to order now. What would you change about the build below and why? feeling a little skeptical about the PSU but for that price I cannot pass it up seeing as I am already over my original build budget (happens every time! haha)! Also I mean skeptical as in future proofing seeing how its only 650w, but I really want to try out a modular PSU this time round. I will not go over 1000$ on the rest, I still have to buy diablo 3 and battlefield 3 but those are in a whole other non existent budget. Input on the keyboard and mouse would help ALOT. All input helps and thanks in advance, cheers! thumb.gif


after shipping and all that jazz the rest equals 910.34$ @ newegg, gotta love combos!

Rosewill RNX-N150PCx PCI 2.2 Wireless Adapter (no where near a router to plug)

Looks great to me. However, I would definitely go with an Asrock or Asus motherboard. There are several great options around the same price as the Biostar.

Also, G. Skill has a great deal on this RAM right now. it's 1866 instead of 1600 and the same price as the Corsair.

is that just personal preference or is there a specific reason? I have always used gigabyte, asus and asrock mobo's and never noticed a difference. I like the look and price with crossfire and the great reviews of the biostar although I have never used it but I will change it if need be!

my last ram set were the black CL 68624 1600mhz gskill and one stick died on me, happens with all brands but I just want to try something other than g.skill now. Also with the xms3 I will have no problem overclocking to that speed.

I only say that because I have only had great experiences with Asrock and Asus, and they are extremely popular brands around here as well. I don't see or hear about many people using Biostar. But whatever works for you!

Ahh alright. Yeah that can happen, I haven't had a problem with mine yet, but Corsair definitely makes great products.

As far as the PSU, although it is a little low on the wattage, it's a great power supply. It will be able to handle more at a higher efficiency than many higher wattage but cheaper brand power supplies. The "you get what you pay for" quote is very relevant when it comes to power supplies.

thanks that is settling to hear haha! Yeah those sticks look great but are 61.99$ + 6.99 shipping on the Canadian newegg otherwise I might of went for them. I was looking at the crucial 1866 that are said to go to CL 8 but they are 69.99 . I was just about to change my cart to the asrock board but its $154+, I will never see performance gain other than quality vs not-quality product so I guess I am going to gamble with the biostar, just like I usually never buy a reference gpu but I just randomly bought it! I am sure I will love my computer, I just have never spent less than 1600$ on my own personal rig!
