Hmm, I think it looks fine, but it doesn't need that powerful of a power supply.

Everything looks good but I would suggest you take out the hard drive cables you will get like 3-5 with your motherboard, also take out the anti static wrist band. You won't be needing it, I've never used one along with a bunch of OCN members and have never had a problem. Also I'd suggest you'd stick with the Cooler Master R4 fans and just get 2 of those instead of 2 different fans just my opinion.

Instead of that GTX 460 get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127518
You will be able to cool it better and overclock farther.

Also you won't be needing a 950W PSU, I would suggest another one that is also modular such as this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139010
You won't need much to run SLI GTX 460s with this, it will run GTX 470s in SLI so you should be fine.

Well, for this system, the TX950W would be able to handle two GTX 480s, or three GTX 470s.


But for two GTX 460s, SeaSonic's X650 is all you'll ever need, plus it's a far superior power supply as well (it's the best 650W on the market). Plus, it's $139.99 + $1.99 shipping:

You'll have way more answers and views for your question if you have your own thread.


This is kyle7412's thread!

So post a new reply once every 12-24 hours in order to "bump" your thread.

Or, come up with titles that draw better (like, be specific, but remain brief).

But most of all: be patient. You're not the only one asking questions you know.

Just my opinion but why do people keep buildingtheir builds now? I'd wait for black Friday or q1 of next year for the 67xx and 68xx radeon hd from AMD and the Intel i7 Sandy bridge cpus. I built my build a month ago which is acceptable being obsolete in 4 months. Frankly I love it, but being so close to black Friday or the new CPUs and gpus Id just wait till they release really. This is again just my opinion.

the 1 gig is like 10 or 20 dollars more, i dont see why not.

Not the screen size but the resolution. You can get a 27" with 1024x720 and it would work great or a 22" with 1920x1080 and watch it die
