post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 


So? Did i make a good choice ? I'm a gamer and i already have a GTX 470. I decided to change my case and i will sell my current pc (in signature) with the GTX 260 in it. I bought that one minute ago on newegg.ca (im canadian).

So the inifinit wait begin haha..

Do you plan to go SLI in the near future? Cause that's a huge power supply.

Even with SLI GTX 470's the TX750 should do it no problem.

I tested it on my friend computer with SLI GTX 470 with a i7 950 and the system was unstable... But maybe it was the combinaison of the graphic card or configuration or someting else but i prefer taking no chance..

Plus, on the nvidia forum there plenty of PSU probleme with 4**/5** series card... and these card need a lot of power..

Looks good other than the OCZ ram. I have frankly have way too many defective OCZ DDR3 kits in the past.

Mushkin or G.Skill would be a better option.

G.Skill is cheaper too, if you call and cancel. I want with 2 X 4GB G skill 109 (I think)

Don't get the Cooler Master v8 it's under performing for the price. I suggest the Megahalem or Mugen 2
