Since he will be playing some demanding games, and I'd like it to last him a little while, his build is shaping up like this:
EDIT: forgot to mention the 6600 is pci express x16
My question is, how much power do I need to run that set up? After that what brands should I use? I'm also trying to save him some cash. So is there a case with psu out there that you guys would recomend? Thanks.
