More about build advice
  1. A 600W 80+ Bronze PSU would be more than enough.
    Other than that, build looks great. I use that MB/CPU combo and it is flawless. I have the 7870 with 600W 80 Bronze. Never a hiccup.
  2. for a single 7850 you need 550-600watts so you can save money there
    when it comes to the hard drive pick wd black series as they are faster
    you dont need to buy an extra thermal paste, it will be included with the cooler

    edit: also you forgot to add a case. look into antec 300 for example
  3. You have a great mid-level gaming build with a motherboard and power supply ready for crossfire.

    We all have advice... How much money do you have to spend?
  4. Hi all
    Thank you , i already have the case , monitor ,keyboard and mouse .
    So i m going to change the power supply for less watts ,save some money on thermal paste
    Again thanks for your help
    i've around $1200 can for this computer

    If you don't plan crossfire 2 7850s at some point (I'm assuming because you're downgrading your power supply), you could also save money by getting a motherboard that's not built for it or SLI:
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128547&Tpk=Gigabyte%20GA-Z77-DS3H&IsVirtualParent=1

    It will save you another $30.

    I'd still keep your original build if you plan to add another 7850 at some point.
  6. let me make one for you..

    for that budget i can give you a 7970 and an SSD

    This build is good for a single-GPU system. If you want to go with crossfire at some point (this gen or next gen) I'd get rid of the SSD, go back to your original motherboard and increase the PSU wattage.

    get the Seagate 7200RMP/64MB Cache, for just ~$5 difference you have twice the storage size and the same speed.

    he said he was planning to Crossfire soon so a 520W PSU will be a problem. I like your choice for the MOBO tho. I thought asrock has the cheapest z77 chipset around.

    I think the seagate 1TB deal is still better compared to getting a 500GB WD black, the speed on the black will be useless since he already has an SSD.
  13. Hi all
    This build is for a single-GPU system ,so i'd keep the 500gb WD black ?
    or change for the Seagate 7200RMP/64MB Cache ?
    because i think that i dont need the speed of an SSD , I really dont know about the SSD !
    and the power supply of 620 watts is enough ?
    All the parts i 'll order from newegg.ca because other shop i dont know how reliable they are

    Thanks for your time

    Single GPU or not, i say stick with the SSD, it will cut all of your loading time in 1/3 (applications installed in the SSD) so less waiting time.

    Gof for the Seagate 1Tb 7200RPM, its only ~$5 more than a 500Gb(twice the capacity for the same speed)

    for a single GPU 450-550W will do the trick. get the one w/c has atleast 80+ Bronze efficiency.

    If you're going for a single-GPU system, the build I put together would work great. A 520W power supply of the Seasonic quality is more than enough for a single-GPU system.

    @teemogeek...I just like the performance of the WD black drives and the fact that the warranty is 5 years on these things. Ever since Seagate bought Maxtor, I've worried about their quality. I keep thinking they can't help but try to incorporate Maxtor's cheaper parts or production process or just re-brand drives to maximize their profits. Maxtor drives were the only drives I've had that have quit on me before I upgraded them. They quit on me just outside the 1-year warranty. I'm talking within weeks. I had Maxtors on two separate PCs this happened to. This is what steers me away from Seagate; their association with the Maxtor production process and quality. Seagate only offers 2 years of warranty on their drives. Any company that's willing to back their HDD for 5 years is the one I'm going to consider.
