First Build - Critique & Advice needed. - Page 2

post #11 of 15
PSU: I was thinking of upgrading to AMD 6950. And with my rig the recommended PSU was 700W so i would probably go for a 750W but 700 should be fine.

CPU: it depends on what you want it for, if it is a purely gaming rig then Intel is the way to go.

I'd say go with the 965 or even 955, they all OC so well that unless you are going for the coveted 4GHz, you can save some money. They are pretty much the exact same chip.

That PSU will work fine for what you have, If you think that you "might" overclock and then do crossfire, I would look at the 750.

What's your total budget?

XFX 750W
AMD Phenom II x6 1055T
For that price, get the x6 vs the 970 - it has a better IMC and actually usually overclocks a bit better.
