Upgrading memory + psu + your thoughts if I made the right choice.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hiya!

So I've just sold my old PC that had i7 920, Gigabyte ex58 UD3R motherboard and a Corsair xms3 3x2gb 1.6ghz.

Upgraded to currently i5 4670k, gigabyte z87x ud3h.

My question is, what memory should I choose, 8 gigs are enough for me, what clock speed is compatible with my motherboard? I saw in some sites that only 1.3/1.6 clock speed is supported, but can it run 1833/2.1/2.4 clock speed?

What PSU Should I consider taking, I prefer to OC my cpu at around 4.0-4.2 Ghz with 212 evo. My graphics card is Zotac gtx 560 Ti running at 905 core clock speed, planning to OC the card later too.

My budget would be around 200 dollars max for the psu and ram.

2nd question, Did I made the right choice? I sold my old PC for 250 dollars cause I was afraid it's going to drop its price pretty soon and will have no value.

I got the motherboard and cpu for 480$.

If I posted this in the wrong section I apologize, put it in the right section then.

I checked that Kingston hyperX are very good too and mostly the best rams so far and those that I can get only from the available ones.

I checked and I can't get Seasonic sadly.

Following PSU's I can get:

Cooler Master
Fortron
Gigabyte
OCZ
Xilence


So I should go for Cooler master/fortron/ocz?

Oh and that PSU that is compatible with the Haswell cpu

And about my ram, can i get the 2400mhz 2x4 gb kingston hyperx? Will my mobo handle it? Cause as I said in some sites they wrote that my mobo can only handle 1.3/1.6ghz speed.

I'm just not sure so sorry if I ask such retarded questions.

Edit:

Going to get PSU OCZ ZT 650W.

They do not have the greatest track record for PSUs. As long as that PSU you want is made by Seasonic (OEM) then sure, but otherwise I would stay away.I know there is one series from OCZ that the OEM is Seasonic for, but can't remember the series.

get the Seasonic X650 if you are getting a 650w PSU.
