  1. can't save you money just make it more expensive. buy a better power supply.

    What would you recomend for a PSU
  3. Best answer
    you definetly need a more powerful psu. how about http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182132 (on sale) or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200. These are more then your current, but you really dont want to skimp on psu, especially with power hungry hardware. Also these both leave plenty of room for overclocking
  4. Is the rest of the build fine or is there any waste of money where I could get equivelent performance
  5. the rest of the build is excellent. Im sure youll be pleased with your purchase (i love the performance i get from mine, and its pretty much the same specs) No money is going to waste, and all of the prices are very good.
  6. IS putting games on an SSD worth it really? I could get a smaller SSD as I might just want to put the OS on it if it doesnt matter as much for games. I dont think that having the games load up faster is needed. Opinion please :)
  7. i dont know too much about ssd's but if you get one, id get a 128 gig and just install os for super fast loading times/boot. sure games can benefit but it would be really unnoticeable. if you want to save money you can get something like this

    Im going to be getting one and installing os on it. Its super fast (made for servers) however it is overkill for a desktop lol but its cheap and name brand

    That drive you listed is a SAS. Does your MB have a SAS connector? Most consumer boards don't.
  9. yes mine does, and it completely slipped my mind that a lot of mobos dont..
  10. http://www.serversupply.com/products/part_search/pid_lookup.asp?pid=90524&gclid=COWZ_tPWn7cCFQ3l7AodlSwATQ

    this could be another option. its discounted, sata interface, and 7200 rpm. Although its not as fast, you would definetly benefit from having a hard drive dedicated to os. Now if you want to spend the money on an ssd http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820171740
