Well I am done. After many hours of reading and searching I have completed the component list for my new computer. Hard drives case screens and preferials will be handled sepratly from this item list (thos for sake of your being able to evaluate my PSU I will say that there will be as many as 4 SATA HDDs, 2 IDE optical drives and 4 high power USB devices attached to this computer). I am submitting this for any critisims that you may have about my build.
I have hit a pontially terrible snag in the build completion process, the processor I want is no longer available from my retailer which could increase the price by as much as $50!!! Lets hope that by the time I am ready to make the purchase the processor is back in stock.
***PROPOSED FINAL BUILD SPECIFICATIONS***
Power Supply Unit:
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W EPS12V ATX V2.2
Hmm yes the mobo is low end, and I hadn't realized that it did not have raid, that throws a wrench in the works. The CPU I wanted in now in stock and there is very little stopping me make the purchase. What is the next cheapest MOBO that will have RAID? Do P35s support RAID? I will take a look now.
The other concern that has been expressed is the ability of my PSU to support all the components. I think it is just what I need PC Power & cooling has a HUGE reputation for making really good PSUs and I think this one should hold up, any thoughts on that?
Yes it is 163.20 for all that RAM. I did lots of bargain hunting on this build
I placed the order!!! THe CPUs were in stock!!! I feel soo euphoric now listening to linkin park "bleed it out" and LOVING every minute. I am off to work now (Video Game Tester" and when I get home I will cry cause my components are not here yet
THen watch me cry as the build is an EPIC FAIL.
