Phenom II X4 955 + Radeon 6870 Combo Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm new here to overclock.net, so I thought I'd open up by asking you guys to tell me what you think of my build I'm currently working on. I won't get to start until early May, so I have time for suggestions and changes. I'm trying to keeping the price around the same, and keep as much of the power from the CPU and GPU that I can, and also as much HDD space.

Click me to see Newegg.com shopping cart.

It totals out around $760, which is a good price for my budget. What do you guys think? I've gotten comments on how the PSU is overkill, but the combo is pretty nice with the GPU considering the wattage. I intend to OC the CPU so it'll be nice to have that added security for $10 less than what I was originally going to pay for the 650W.

I'd buy a more trusted PSU brand ..
650W should do, regardless of OC'ing, I belive.

Looks fine otherwise.

I'd go with this:

PS - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005 Price should come out pretty close with the video card you chose and the Corsair has a 5 year warranty.
