Gaming PC - My 1st Build - Page 2

post #11 of 33
First change that PSU

I know if Chozart were here right now he would recommend this bad boy as well.
So ill just recommend first it in memory of him

CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139001

Damn good ram

Damn good Mobo

Of course youll need a hard drive. But those are a no brainer. Any 7200rpm drive with 16mb cache will suffice.

And as for the video card it looks like the x1950XT is the best DX9 card out there.

Happy Building

You also might want to consider an e6600 for only 35 bucks more.
Do the math and see if fits the budget.

not a bad build at all, i would however recommend this psu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341010
and for $1000 you could squeeze in a dx10 card if ya wanted but wouldn't suggest the 8600 series for gaming . but i would go for the x1950

If you're building this rig at this time, I suggest you bump it up to a DX10 card. Just to save a headache in the future. Or when, you want to play with better performance. Either way try and get a DX10 card.

if your looking to build a C2D rig
maybe you should look at some aftermarket cooling, they run a little hot.
im not saying go to extremes and buy watercooling,
just something a little better than stock.

OCZ PSU's are nice, and give of blue light, if thats your thing.
the new corsair PSU's are good too, modular and partially silent.

also, consider a DX10 card, can pick one up for £199.99 U.K pounds.

I would be interested in a Dx10 card, but I'm not yet ready to make the switch to Vista. Down the line though, I plan on upgrading.

He's right. Even if it has to be a 320MB one.. just for now at least.

I'd go with the X1950XT on DX9.

How much are you willing to spend on a PSU?
A strong PSU now would be a future-proof if you're going to upgrade.

I have this, OCZ 600w GamexStream .This is my first build and that PSU handled everything I gave at it.

Fishie have ran his 8800GTS on this PSU. SeaSonic 430w
Silverstone 500w. This have pretty good ratings. SilverStone is a great PSU brand.

If you're not going SLI, get the DS3 board and put the $100 you're going to save into a good PSU.
