Is this build okay? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
It always annoys me when people build their comp. They want all the fancy bits but duck out on the PSU - heart of the system pushing volts ( blood ) mad.gif

A PSU can put you back to rebuilding again when it fries other components

So think again on your PSU thumb.gif

A Corsair CX isn't that bad tho. I don't think it'll fry his system or so. If he can go for a higher quality system tho he certainly should.

Go for AMD if that your price, dont let them fanboys get to your head.
AMD FX-8350 - £149.99


To the people saying to get a 7950 instead of the 660 OC, there two different price. A 7850 2GB in the UK cost around £150.
Pick whichever graphics card you want, both companies have good prices for each card, I will say though the 7950 is probably bang for the buck but its way out of your budget.


Seagate 2TB Barracuda 3.5" SATA-III Hard Disk - £64.95 ( amazon deal )

Thanks for the input about the motherboard, I decided to go with a GA-Z77X-D3H, a little more expensive than the old board, but I do want SLI eventually.

As for the power supply, I will look into an alternative before I buy. Thanks!

Wow... 2TB? Will get that hard drive instead then! Found the same deal on ebuyer.

So my basket is at £910 at the moment, which is fine, and I'm looking at a better PSU. Any suggestions for something that can SLI in the future?

You can easily SLI in the PSU.

I have the newer 600W CX PSU and it is running like a charm, also unlike some other cheap units the cable look quite good as well.

Go Seasonic and be done with it - takes all the worry's out later 750 will be ample plus I love their 7 yr warranty, yep 7 yr warranty, that's how confident they are of their product thumb.gif
