FINAL i5 build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just about to purchase everything but would definitely like some last minute input.

CPU: Core i5 750
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3
RAM: G.Skill 4GB DDR3 1333
Graphix: XFX 5770 (Juniper XT)
PSU: Antec Earthwatts 650w

Already have a 1TB WD Black hard drive, Blu-ray drive, and Antec 300 case. Main uses for this computer will be mostly web browsing, multimedia, and some gaming (particularly SC2). No overclocking will be done.

I was going to say that I'd rather choose the Antec TPN 650, for $75 after MIR, but the corsair TX650 is $70 after MIR and coupon code 650wsave. I'd probably still pick up the TPN, if I weren't the type that likes to pay less now and not depend too much on MIR.

Honestly, that system would run perfectly fine on a 400w PSU - even overclocked to the max. You can get the Corsair 400cx for $30 after rebate.

Other than the cache size, how much better is an i5 750 than an i3 530? The i3 is dual core, but hyperthreading - and $100.00 cheaper.

True Quad core is definitely better than Hyperthreaded dual core.

Well, I figured that much. How MUCH better is it, though?

Can someone else confirm that a 400w psu would be sufficient for this build? Energy efficiency (plus quietness) is very important to me so I'd like to avoid a 650w psu if possible. Again, I don't plan any overclocking on this build.
