    this build is meant for medium-high settings...so dont expect anything big..
    p.s this is a good build...but i would suggest you to go for 7850 atleast..if you can..
  3. Its difficult to make meaningful comment about some of your list . Corsauir make lots of different memory sticks and some are suitable and some are not .

    A 600 watt psu looks like overkill for that build . Even the CX 430 would run that well
  4. Ok thank you that's all i needed it for (med-High). If i have the money at the time i will buy the 7850.
    I chose the 600 watt psu to have some head room, do you think that is to much headroom?

    yeah..calculate your requirement from here.. http://support.asus.com/powersupply.aspx
    and buy a decent PSU that fits in your budget.. :)
  6. I like some headroom in the PSU, never know what you'll add or upgrade to in the future - if you do go lower check the PSU close,many list at whatever Wattage - show Peak wattage and you'll want continuous - i.e. might get a suggested 430 and find it's actually only 325 or less and can't even run your rig
  7. If this is for gaming, I would change the 6300 to a 750K and use the savings to get a 7790.
