Any and all input is accepted smile.gif
Thanks guys

2700K @ 4.7GHz, and a 6850 on a Antec Earthwatts 500w?

YES it'll be fine.

I don't plan to SLI or CF in the future, not really looking to put that much money into it. Just light gaming(MW2) and photo editing.

What about 5ghz? I'd like to atleast hit 5ghz to join that club. Not really for bragging rights but several people have said it would be cool to push 5. So I think I'll give it a shot IF I'd still have a little head room. If not I'll just stick with around 4.7ish

Repainted my Earthwatts 500w

Paint bubbled and flaked tho but It was my first time painting computer components and I don't try for perfection, just sanctification biggrin.gif

Left the back the stock green for now but painted the fan grill gold

700

removed the Antec sticker and painted it gold and the removable piece is painted black, yes i did mess up on the painting as you can see the unevenness and bubbles

450

I have an Antec HCG750
High Current Gamer series, 750 Watt. Great PSU, just wish it was modular - but you cant have everything when you're on a budget can you?
