New Intel Build, Need Advice - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Dude, we are building the same system. Well, somewhat. Was curious about your PSU.

I mean I know you made your buys, and no use looking back now, but why 600W? It looks like a lot.

When I entered your system into this online wattage calc it came to about 300W.

a few minutes later:
OKAY OKAY, just went and did your system with a few additions, for future-proffing etc. So, with vid card and cpu overclocked, another 8800gts added, plus some USBs plugged in, an extra HD and a few other things thrown in come out to about recommended 600W. Hmm, this is changing my mind about my board. Was thinking 450W.

I found this customer review: "Solid rails, 600W, and near silent operation make this a killer PSU. Has been running my Xeon E3110 g 4ghz OC and overclocked 8800GT flawlessly." ..the 3110 is the same chip and almost the same vid card. Good to know!

re: your ram..
Why that ram? (I know eff all about memory) It suits this sytem? Or it's just some good priced 4G that you grabbed.


BTW: are you planning on OCing?

Well I didn't know anything about power supplies either so I kind of just went with what someone on here told me. And my RAM is HERE, I was going to go with some PC2-8000, but this RAM was too cheap to pass up.
