This machine that I am building is mainly for multimedia, audio/video editing. Some gaming as well i.e WoW and COD4. I am also planning to crossfire the graphics cards some time in the future. I am not sure if the PSU I listed will support dual 4870s... Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
Here is what I came up with after trolling the forums for a week...
Items I already have:
CPU: Q9450 2.66Ghz $329.99
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-X48-DS4 $224.99
Case: Lian Li PC - A17B $179.99
Case Fan: Xigmatek XLF-F1253 R (2x) $8.99
Memory: Corsair Dominator 2GB (2x1GB) 1066 $FREE
Thanks guys. I was debating on whether to get a 750 or 1000w PSU. this will save me about $130 by going with the 750w.
I went with the Corsair Dominator because I already have 2GB of it. It was from a Dell XPS 630i that had to downngrade to XP (4GB to 2GB)and I just happen to be at the right place and time to get them for free. The IT guy at work gave them to me to start off my build... so I am going to stick to those for now...
