GTX580 build - about to order!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hola,

I am about to order these parts for DIY assembling at home:

PSU: Corsair TX 950W
MOBO: ASRock P67 Extreme4 (quad sli support)
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB
CASE: Thermaltake V9 Black Edition
RAM: G.Skill 4GB KIT RipJaws DDR3-1600
GPU: Gainward GTX 580 1536MB GDDR5
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 4x3.30 GHz 1155 Boxed
This is a build for possible SLi in the future btw..

This is going to be my first time assembly, so is there something that I've missed or are there things that are not going to work together?

P.S. are the essential wires and cables usually provided to assemble these together?

If you're definitely planning on SLI 580's you could keep the TX950 in that build, providing its a good enough deal. Otherwise get an AX850/HX850/XFX850/Seasonic X Series 850W.

If you're going with one card then a TruePower New 550W would do the job fine.

I am not planing to do any extreme overclocking at first, therefore, aftermarket cooler can wait, I guess.. Boxed cpu has stock cooler, right?

Good point about RAM, price is almost the same So 1600 it is then..

And I do have an optical drive of my own

Go with the G.skill 1600 kit instead. You don't need a 950W PS for that. Consider a 750W like the TX 750 or the Antec TPN 750 (massively underrated wattage, and IMO much better than the Corsair -- 744W on the 12V rails alone).

As I've mentioned I might go with another 580 in a couple of months, therefore would the 750W be enough to feed 2x580s?

The Antec (which is actually a Seasonic built unit) would easily, TDP on the GTX 580 at stock clocks is 244W. As stated, it has almost 750W available just on the 12v rails alone. However, if you overclock the 580's a lot you should probably stick with a 950W power supply. I don't know why you'd want to massively overclock two 580's though. They can handle pretty much anything at stock clocks.
