Wow, so much absolute FAIL recommendations in one thread.

1) The Corsair TX lineup has been changed. It's no longer as good as it used to be, plus it's like a 2 year old design. It's not that great anymore.

2) Your planned build would work fine off a QUALITY 750w unit, and overclock. If you want to assure yourself that you've got the room, then get a quality 850w, like the HX850. I'm sure there are plenty other good 850w units, I'm just too lazy to look. Even with an 850w, you'll have room for a PhysX card too in the future if you wanted .

3) 1000w would easily run Tri SLI. 1200w would easily run Quad SLI. You would have absolutely NO REASON to get a 1500w unit in my opinion. The only time you'd need that much power would be for 4x GTX480's or 580's, and you were doing 100% load on EVERYTHING all the time.

I agree with Pioneer, you need 850-900w max for a pair of 580s.
And there's buckets of good ones around:
Corsair HX850
Antec TPQ850
Antec HCG900
Silverstone Strider+850
Corsair AX850
Seasonic X850

That little list should keep you going.

I currently have a 9800 GT card, which I could run in PhysX, but heres the problem:

The P8P67 Deluxe has three PCI Express x16, two PCI Express x1 slots, and two PCI slots

Now, since I need two x16 for GTX 580 SLI, and one x16 for the RevoDrive SSD, where would I put the 9800 GT card? xD

@Shub

The reason why I have chosen a 500GB internal hard drive is because I have a 500GB external hard drive aswell, which I will be using to backup the data from the internal hard drive because I have some important data I cannot lose.

Another reason is: I think bigger hard drive have a higher fail ratio, plus with 500GB I think I will be fine. If needed, I'll buy another one.

You misunderstood me If you want a 500 GB drive that's fine, I was referring to your choice of product line -- I'd recommend a WD Caviar Black or Samsung SpinPoint F3 drive. WD distinguishes its drives' performance by three main categories, Green (~5400RPM "eco-friendly" drives), Blue (mid-range performance) and Black (high performance).

Well, isn't mid-range performance okay?

I don't need speed, and I don't need the hard drive to be loud either. All I need is storage, and the blue seems to be fine since it just costs 49$. The caviar black is 10$ higher, and according to newegg the only difference is the cache (black:32mb, blue:16mb)

I always assume people need the speed, but if you don't, no problem. Note that the Caviar Black drives aren't noisy and they are in fact faster than Blue drives even though the only apparent difference is cache. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of your options there

Meh, I will just get the Caviar Black

Tho, which one should I chose?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...^22-136-795-TS

SATA 3.0 or SATA 6.0?

Btw, one of the reasons why I dont want to buy a 1TB hard drive aswell is because most reviews in newegg say 'it crashed in a week, month, good untill it lasted' and crap like that...

For the same price you can get the 6Gb/s variant. They tend to be more expensive, in which case they're not worth it since regular hard drives are nowhere near taking advantage of the bandwidth of SATA 3Gb/s anyway.
post #19 of 52
I have 2 1tb hard drives and both of them work fine. also you should probably get the 6.0 since your motherboard supports it and it is the same price

@dhopisthename

how long you been using your two 1tb hard drives?

right now, the way i see it is: the older, smaller drives tend to be more reliable...

at least I think like that because I've been using my very old hard drives for years and they still run fine

ie, right now one of them is:

I've been using it for like 4 years without any problem
