Video Editing PC Build, any glaring mistakes/improvements?

So, with some help I've got to this build. Before taking the plunge i'd like a double check to see if there are any glaring mistakes or potential improvements? My cap is £1000.. but I'd like to keep slightly below to for P&P and buying Windows7Pro for the full price (that £36 deal looks to good to be true).

To save on price I'd also like to strip out my Advent CBE1401 Centurion case, is this a wise idea? i.e will everything fit in it? It's labelled as a mid-tower.

Thanks

  1. Best answer
    You may want to find a Single rail PSU. The max rail amp on the one you have listed is 20A. The 280x will need more juice than that. Maybe a http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/ggQrxr

    And yes it will fit in a mid tower case.
  2. Hi, does this have any relevance to wattage? PCPartPicker estimates the whole build at 461Watts.
  3. hmm.. anyone? I'm really unsure as to what feature to choose a different PSU on? Are we talking 'pick a higher wattage'?
  4. If you click on the PSU itself, scroll down and you will see the rail rating 12v1@20A etc etc. You want a PSU that has rail rated at above 42A per rail. Usually that high you need a single rail 750w PSU. You can get high multi rail but the PSU will be like 1000w or higher. The one i linked is single rail at 60A

    The CX series from Corsair havent had the best track record. The higher end ones are ok(AX,HX,TX) The XFX non-modular version of the one i linked is the same price. The modular one I linked is only like 5$ more.
  7. I couldn't find anywhere stating the amps on your link? Google turned up nothing aswell
  8. This is the same PSU just the non modular version. Ratings are the same.
