Im not sure if I should buy this rig or not!

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Ok so, ive been in the computer market for the last week, and I've narrowed down my choices to these components. If anyone knows of a better build for lesser money, PLZZZZZZZZ feel free to chime in. Im on a budget and Im already extended over what I should be... so here it is!

Anatech Mid Tower computer case (just a generic cheepo) 14.99
Biostar TFORCE T520 59.99
eVGA GeForce 8800GTS 279.99 (20 MIR)
Hiper PSU @ 480W 49.99
AMD Athlon 3600 X2 @ 1.9 61.99
OCz 2x 1GB DDR2 800mhz pc6400 97.99 (25 MIR)
Excelstor 80GB SATA 3.0 34.99
Spectre 20.1in LCD Monitor 179.99 (20 MIR)
Lite-on DVD Burner 30.99

Subtotal: 812.91
with MIRs: 737.91

in all honesty i still need speakers, keyboard, and mouse... but my friends have spares so im not really counting it.

Now, is it worth the 750 or should I mod it a little? Thanks for the input!

Well I know i need a stronger CPU, this is my budget build. Why do you think I need a stronger PSU??
post #8 of 35
to run the 8800gts the recommended power on the rail for the WHOLE system is minimum 26A on +12v rail.

now Nvidia recommends you have atleast 400Watt psu for running a 8800gts. your Hiper psu will work fine, atleast i think so. i think siddyboy 21 is worried that the psu is going to be pushed towards its limits.

the minimum recommended is 400Watts, so you may need to go for something around 500 if your going to overclock. But it will work atleast for now.
