Great build! Personally, I'd pick up a little more RAM but as far as compatibility and performance goes, it's all good stuff biggrin.gif

Looking good to me ! thumb.gif But I'd also suggest more ram. At least 8gb. especially with as cheap as it is.

Now, would I also need a cooling fan/ liquid cooling system? I didnt think it would be necessary, since I'm not running an i7 and 2 GeForce 650's.

emphasis on absolute garbage. Get an XFX 450W or something. Much better than what u have.

Ok. Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it.
post #10 of 20
I just remembered. Do you have a Sata hard drive in your old computer, because if u do, you might be able to take it out (same with the optical drive) and same some money. Money that could be spent getting a better graphics card, maybe a descent size ssd or u could always save the money for later. biggrin.gif
