The OP is not in North America hence my response about PSU's.

Thanks for your help, I got a corsair cx550w

Guy in the shop said enough for what I had put in the case.

i give you my first born, I have a feeling this is the start of something...



PC well fast!! SSD is so quick. Only issue is an intermitent hum when the speakers are plugged in so I've unplugged for now.

Hmmmmm.......I may pass on the first born as it costs plenty to raise kids these days. tongue.gif biggrin.gif

 

So I take it that the guy in the shop helped finish the remaining issues/questions you had?

 

If so I hope he showed you what he did so you know for any future builds or upgrades.

 

Glad you got a 550 watt PSU as that GPU had a minimum 450 watt PSU requirement. 

 

Yeah it's fast I know with my i7 2700k is nice with the SSD together "makes beautiful music".

No I just asked him if 550w was enough he said yes. The rest was your work, I just kinda followed what you said and voila!

Hope that the PSU wattage will be enough if you ever decide to upgrade your hardware in the future.

 

Happy to hear that you figured it out as that's the best way to learn and you probably feel good that you did it!  We more experienced people started like you, so take this as an experience that you can put to use at a later date.  Please save your receipts in case of hardware failure for potential RMA-ing, hopefully you'll never need to.

 

Doing it slow (did you?) and having patience pays off most of the time.

 

Now I'll send you a more complicated setup for you to put together to do as a test, are you up to it? tongue.gif j/k biggrin.gif

 

Enjoy your new rig in great health!

as far as PSU goes, it's more about the quality of the PSU then the wattage. i did not see the CX550 in the OCN recommended PSU list so i can only assume it's not that great of a unit even tho corsair put their sticker on it. the wattage is not the issue. it's more about the quality of the PSU that is in question on your build.

No offense to anyone:

 

This is why I asked the OP to discuss the PSU purchase with me but he already purchased it without any consultation - his choice.

 

That CX550 PSU unit is Corsair's lower end line and no offense to the OP.  It's not a terrible PSU but better could've been had for a bump up in price of course.  You get what you pay for as they say.

 

I would have tried to steer him to the Seasonic "X" GOLD series - just so much better and a 7 year warranty.

No offence taken by me, it was very good of you to offer your advice Nick and it helped clarify my thoughts re Molex connectors and the MB connectors. I w!ould have waited for your final peice of info but I said was impatient!

I cant argue that a better PSU would be good long term nbut I think this unit will cope as I dont plan to further expand, I'm going to put this one in my office and build a bigger one!!!!

Will defo plan my next build more efficiently, read up on here and await feedback when you are kind enough to offer your time. I reckon an i7 next :-)) thumb.gif

So now you're going to sprout your wings and build a "badder" rig hmmmm....... tongue.gifbiggrin.gif

 

You need to learn one thing though.

 

You guess.
