Solved Need Build advice before I buy Tags: Build Components Last response: March 20, 2014 3:41 PM in Components Share chonger March 20, 2014 3:29:25 PM This is what I have for my build so far and want to see what people think. Any suggestions? And how does it look? I want to get a better PSU so suggestions for that would be great. Also will I be good with this motherboard and is the Asus Hero worth the extra money?

I would go for the Asus Hero It will still work. The psu isn't very good. The CX series isn't very good. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'll post one from Amazon soon. Newegg isn't showing me more than 5 psu's. A good brand is Seasonic, OCZ(Modstream series are very good), other corsairs. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005SCYFVA/ref=gno_car... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001EYV690 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004NMF9ES http://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-M12II-620-BRONZE-SS-620G... Reply to XxD34THxX Share Bad_Kitty13 March 20, 2014 3:35:21 PM this is a good reliable non modular psu http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650s... here is a good reliable full modular gold rating http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750b... dont need the extra 100w but it is cheaper than the 650w and around the same price as the 550w i wouldnt go with cx they are known to have problems the only corsair i suggest is hx, tx,axi if you want a corsair go with one of these http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-tx... http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cm... also you can go with 8gbs of ram unless you need it for work you do, other than that good build and nice case Reply to Bad_Kitty13 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
