Any Comments on This Build? (~$800 Budget)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is a first time build, but I'm not completely ignorant of things computer related. I just thought I might see if you guys have any comments on this build before I make the purchases. I'm looking to spend around $800 total, but a little over or under is fine too. I'm not looking to do a lot of gaming on this, but I'd like to be able to on occasion. I'm mainly just looking for a significant upgrade over what I'm currently running (which would be pretty much anything). Also, I don't really have anything right now, so I need to get everything including a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc.

the keyboard is perfect! haha
looks like a really nice build for that price. i would say spend a little more money on a better psu, like the corsair 450vx, i think its 75$ and well worth it for stability over the rosewill

because if you're gonna keep that 8600, no need over 450 watts imo

...What?
I'm not sure I want to double the price of my build just by buying this PSU. There's also no way I'll ever need 1kW. I will look into possibly getting a higher quality PSU though.

Thanks for pointing out the E2180. Newegg must have just started selling them very recently. I'll probably go ahead and spend a few more dollars and get that.

I would actually recommend the Xclio Goodpower for a PSU (search on newegg for goodpower, you'll find it). It's 500W, and it'd be plenty to run what you have listed. It's only $50, and I have two of them in two different computers running great. It's also been recommended to me by several people on these forums. The reviews are good too, except a couple people who have had DOAs. Definitely my recommendation.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I just made the purchase about an hour ago.
