How's my first build? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Yes, there have been a lot of reviews and benchmarks recently that have basically concluded that upgrading past an upper mid-tier CPU will net you no difference in games. It's all really about e-peen.

you said that PSU would be overkill, so should i just go with the HX version of that and not the professional?

also what is the difference between UDR3, UD5 and UD7?

do i need a 120GB SSD? how big would be efficient enough?

When I say overkill, I'm talking about rated wattage. That is an excellent 750W PSU and would recommend it, except that your build does not need 750W. If you want to SLI 570s, it would be worth considering, but if you're only planning on one card for this build's lifetime you should be looking at a solid ~550W PSU.

Like this one:

Or if you want headroom for anything unexpected down the road, I would suggest this one:

well the Corsair HX 750W is only 5 dollars more than the antec 650. so wouldnt it just make sence to get that one instead. 5 dollars for 100W more.

I didn't recommend a 650W Antec, did I? And again wattage != quality. The Hx750 is only silver certified and just not as high quality as either the Seasonic or the AX750.

well the one you said for headroom as the 650w seasonic. so the gold certified is better than silver with 100w more? i have no problem changing anything, i just want to have the best for what i need.

I don't have an answer to that. To be completely honest, I'm taking other people's information.

It's a good guide with excellent recommendations. If you check out the PSU sub-forum (way way waaaaaaay down there) you can ask a real PSU buff. Someone like Phaedrus will probably help you out.

It's not like more wattage is going to make your computer faster or anything. I would take the Seasonic 650 gold certified over a 750 silver certified in your case, definitely if you don't plan on going SLI.

well i found the new seasonic x760 gold for 145. so 5 bucks more for seasonic gold and 100 more watts. ill take that. now all i need to figure out is what SSD i want to get.
post #20 of 22
Solid build but honestly I don't know why you would get a HAF X, it too much for the price IMO. Also why did you get Corsair Dominator with the D-14 even though it's reported to have compatibility issues? How did you work around this? removed the top head spreader? raised the fan?
