I'd go with this PS - Corsair 850W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139011

Build looks good IMO.

Hello.

First of all, Why don't you try i5 2500k? its better then 1100t. And you can get very good 1155 Socket with $300. I mean, if you are going to spend $230 in a CPU, I'll recomend to get i5 2500k. I'm not Intel Fan boy ( you can check my rig) But I think its the best bang for the bucket right now. I have seen many reviews. BTW, that green case looks sick!

Good luck!

I looked at that one. The XFX is made by Seasonic, I figured it would be the better of the two.

@age_ruler1 - The 1100t is only $15 bucks more, and they are both 3.3GHz but the AMD is a hexacore.

@ Tyker2424 - Cores do not mean anything. My x6 sucks vs i5 2500k which is Quadcore. Why? 1155 Socket CPU have NEWER and BETTER architecture. So they work faster even at same speed and with two less cores.

Basically you are getting a better, faster, MORE overclockabel CPU for $15 bucks less.

If you need proves, Please go search some benchmarks. This are facts. And as I said, I'm not either AMD nor Intel Fanboy.

This RAM is some $15-20 less, and will do the same 6-8-6 timings

1100T not worth it over 1090T

Also be sure to get Am3+ expandable board because the new 32nm FX Series is out in 1-2 months. That board WILL be AM3+ compatible via BIOS update, though you will lose a few power saving features. For a fully AM3+ compatible board (with AM3+ socket), you might want to have a look at this ASRock one

Good call on that benchmark, I've saw a few benchmarks but none with the socket 1155 in it.

What about the new EVGA P67 FTW with a i5-2500K or maybe a i7 if budget allows? Is socket 1155 dual channel mem again and not triple channel?

Indeed, a Core i5-2500K in either an H68 or an P67 platform is far better.

The XFX PSU is good btw. But you won't need anymore than 650W. That's plenty.
There are XFX Black Edition PSU's at 650W and 750W as well.
