Any Suggestions On This Build? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey thanks for the suggestions. I dont think I will be doing any overclocking, even if I did it successfully I don't think I would know what to do with it. So given that, here is what I think I understand.
I need to choose a better PSU, but I'm not sure the wattage I need, but I think 550ish will work from what everyone has said, most likely the SeaSonic TwoCables suggested.
Now considering the motherboard, if I am understanding this correctly I should probably steer away from the MSU and go with a Gigabyte or ASUS.
Since I am getting a graphics card should I try a mobo with out integrated graphics or does it not really matter?
Next concern is the graphics card. Will the GTX460 work or provide good results or should I look at the GTX560 cards?

That is all the questions I have for now

GTX 460 1GB is a great card... they overclock to 5870 levels so I hear. The GTX 560 is a pretty big step up though.
Steer away from MSI (exception would be the 890FXA-GD65 but that's it) for 125W processors, for most reliable/safe operation
A mobo without integrated graphics may be cheaper in your case.

The 520W SeaSonic M12II will be awesome. :

If not, then can you afford the GTX 470? The GTX 470 is about 20-25% better than the GTX 460.

Just curious, how far would this be stepping down from the from the GTX 460?

from the 460 1GB it's definitely a noticeable step down, the 5770 is closer to the GTS 450.

On another thought does anyone trust these re-certified deals?

I'd trust it. Comes with a 90-day manufacturer warranty and has good reviews - I say you have nothing to lose
