Hey guys,

/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112308&cm_re=lian_li_v1 020-_-11-112-308-_-Product



Please all suggestions and critique would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure how that psu stacks up atm, and whether a 600t would be a better option than the v1020. Case and psu suggestions are welcome, modular psu's only please


Will my silent pro 600W current psu hold up the next build until i can get a new psu?

Also, plan on hitting up the Crucial C400 when it drops
Thank you!

It looks great, the only alternative I could suggest is picking up a 6950 1GB in stead of the 560Ti. I hope this week someone might post a review which compares the 560Ti SLI vs 6950 1GB Xfire.

Here is a write up on a 6950 if you want to read through it. Later pages show benchmarking and what not. If you do get a 6950 dont get this specific one. It will run cooler but it IS (NOT A REFERENCE MODEL) So you can not flash the card and get it to a HD 6970 status.

Looks ok to me.

Your PSU should be enough.

Edit: But maybe not enough to do 560 sli.

Yeah, I don't think I could keep this PSU when switching to SLI for sure lol.

The only reason I'm not going with ATI is because I do a lot of development in Linux and Linux has compatibility issues last time with ATI last time I checked.

So my thought process is, get NVIDIA now and later when I upgrade I can downgrade my NVIDIA card to my future linux boxes. Hehe.

The ATI cards look freaking sick for the money though.

Looks great. I would though, go for an Xspc Rasa water cooling kit instead of the h70.
