Haha, unfortunately for me, I don't have a job right now, so I will have to borrow money from my parents until I can return it. :x

im not a fan of ocz psu's and ram but it will work. you wont need the thermal paste if your just gonna use the stock heatsink as it comes with some on it already.

I would recommend Western Digital as they are faster but that ones not bad.

NO NO NO NO just stay away from it. They are over rated. Corsair, Seasonic, PC power and cooling, just to name a few.

I wonder if thats whats up with mine. I know I had some bad caps on it and when I replaced them (with exact same new) and powered on they exploded. Like BOOM! I think it is around here some where and I still have a few more caps for it ...... nah once was enough.

Why is it that I should stay away from the OCZ PSU, I have read alot of good reviews for them... Maybe I will switch to the CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V when I buy another 460 Fermi and then put the OCZ in my current tower... I will keep the WD in mind as I have read that WD is a way better route to take concerning HDDs... I am new to the building computer route..

There is no harm in having a RAID setup with different HDDs is there?

I was wondering if anyone had a link to setting up the 790FX bios for intial setup...

Has two 25A rails. Plain and simply not enough juice.
750TX
OCZ

When you look at the numbers on the OCZ they do not add up correctly.
Tkae the 12v rails, They say 25A but that is not possible if they can do 552W best they can do is 23A. That right there is enough for me. If you cant label it properly then I don't want it.
Likewise if you look at the 3.3 and +5 and check by the amps, 3.3 x 25 = 82 and 5 x 25 = 125 82 +125=207 not their stated 150W so it is wrong there too. Like I said the numbers don't add up and that scares me!

Also notice the corsair numbers for max if you add them up they are over(by ~23%) 750 for 924W that is because the numbers are MAX if only that is used. Now the OCZ when looking at their numbers = 718W notice how much less it is over?(~102%)

in other words OCZ is lying about how much power their supplies can put out.

When you think about it the PSU is one of the main things you don't want to skimp on, It powers everything and can fry everything! So is saving $30 worth it?
