post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to hold out for bulldozer before I bought my new gaming rig, but seeing as though I can't play any games I want to, a month is just to long to wait. So i'm going sandy bridge! Ordering the parts tommorow and would just like you lovely people to give the all clear
Ordering all parts from scan.co.uk
Parts:
Windows 7
1TB f3 HDD
MSI Gtx560ti Twin FrozerII/OC
4GB Corsair XMS3 classic
i5 2500k
P8p67 pro Rev3
750w Antec TruePower new
CM hyper 212+

£773 Inc shipping

Will be buying the case and new Monitor next month, it can sit on my motherboard box until then right?
Any opinions on anything better or better price to performance are welcome
Thanks

that looks good, you don't need that much power though. give me a sec and i will give you a couple recommendations

this still leaves headroom for upgrades and looks to be quite a good psu

also have you considered getting a small ssd for a boot drive and installing your most played games on?

finally, yes you can run it sitting on the box, just be careful not to knock it around too much, the mobo is fragile as well as most of the parts in it. also don't expect your temps to be great without a case, as there is no definate airflow.

i wish you the best of luck!

Parts look good.

SSD is nice for the OS and most used apps, but that may not be within your budget.

That Antec PSU performs good, but it's not really modular, IMO. There are too many cables hardwired. So, if you were looking for modularity, then you may want to look into another PSU. Plus, as mentioned, 750W is not needed.

but modularity also comes with a price. all the cables you don't use you can just stuff behind the mobo tray in your case when you get it. it comes down to price. if we had an idea about your budget we could help you more
post #6 of 11
Oh yeah, definitely. I just wanted to make sure he wasn't buying for the modularity, and then be disappointed when he got the PSU

the one he had chosen was $100 and had "hybrid" cable management meaning that it had all the regular cables:
1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
1 x 4-Pin ATX 12V
1 x 8-Pin EPS 12V
9 x Peripheral
9 x SATA
1 x Floppy
4 x PCI-E

whereas most of those are removable, other than the 20+4 and 4/8 pin connectors.

but for a $25-$30 savings on a budget build, i think the psu i recommended is much better for the cash

edit: with that saved money you could fit a small ssd (16gb) in your budget quite easily

Your recommendation is definitely better for the money and will power his system well.

I just disagree with Antec marketing the TruePower New PSUs as modular when all of the following cables are hardwired and cannot be removed.

ATX connector
Molex (3 plugs)
Floppy
SATA(3 plugs)
8 pin EPS12V
4 pin ATX12V
2x 6+2 pin PCIe

i agree. for that much more money, it should be completely modular. but oh well. people will think its better and still buy it.

good luck op!
