  1. i would go for better quality psu, XFX 550
    and better GPU

    Radeon 270 (which is as cheap as 750 ti)
  2. Well I guess what I want to know is what is the most money you're willing to spend?
  3. The radeon 270 is a lot more expensive :( and i want to stick to nvidia
  4. I like it i would spend a little more and get the ASUS M5A99X EVO R2 mobo if you plan to overclock if not i agree with other posters try to get a better power supply the one you have should work fine it just isent very good quality.
  5. I like the 750 ti good for a cheap little card it will run bf4 on ultra at near 30fps which is impressive for a cheaper budget card and the FTW version you have there is the best of the 750 ti's.
  6. Ok I'm looking at the xfx 550, its a good price but is good quality ? On amazon there's more great reviews for the CX 500, there's like 600 5 star reviews where as 6 people reviewed the xfx 550 as 4 star
  7. Seems all good to me. PSU will be fine, don't worry about it.
  8. So all I need guys is CX500 v XFX 550?

    look for 80 plus gold certified the seasonic g series 550 watt is a good choice.

    The XFX is better the CX is cheaper its your decision now.
  11. Considering his build, I doubt he would have the money to buy a gold certified PSU. Bronze will do for now, if need be, you can upgrade in the future.
  12. Seasonic g series is out of my budget :( CX500 or XFX 550w?
  13. I can afford the XFX 550, I think I'll look into it then, is everything else okay? :) thanks so far
  14. I would get the XFX it has more amps on the 12v rail than the CX and will probably last longer and give you cleaner power. But again it is your choice if you want to spend the extra cash go for it if not the CX will do fine.
  15. Is it single rail

    Yes everything else is great i actually have a similar build myself but i got the fx 6350 which i dont recommend for the price i got a deal on it. and i have the gigabyte windforce 750ti.
  17. Thanks so much I'm going for the XFX and I'll keep everything else on the build. Hopefully I'll build it ok

    Yes they both have a single 12v rail the xfx just has more power on it. And single 12v rail is what you want.
