I'm kinda new to this border and am seeking advice about the well known question, which PSU to pick?
Currently I'm looking through tons of web stores etc to find the hardware after the principles of "best bang for the bucket" without going on compromise with performace (naerly) and so far I've decided to get following:
Intel i7 920 (Stock: 2.66GHZ gonna see if I can use my non existing OC'ing skills to get it up around the 3.2-3.4GHZ but with a little advice and some nice guids it will work out.)
Asus X58 P6T Deluxe
3 x 2GB DDR3-PC12800 1600MHZ Corsair Dominator
1 TB Samsung F1 Spinpoint
295 GTX (Not decided what producer and doesn't really matter unless there are advantages)
Well... Good question. I'd like watercooling for my CPU since I really like a silent computer (much as possible). I would appreciate any recomendation.
Might add an BlueRay drive later since they aren't that expensive anymore (at least the readers aren't).
I've been on the different PSU producer homepages where you can a PSU tjeck by filling out a scheme and it tells you how much your system might use. It ended up from 723 to 840w. Honestly I have no idea if i did everything wrong so I hope that someone on this hardware mekka could help me figuring out whats the best for this setup.
Ohh and if anyone has any other advice in cooling or some better alternatives on hardware your more then welcome to comment.
Not $300 really. I guess you can get cheaper aircoolers which performs on par with the watercooling systems. So I'll stick to that. Gonna invest in a CoolMaster Cosmos S case also for optimal airflow and low noise.
I've read enough threads about psu' to know that a majority of people overestimate their power requirements. It happens all the time here.
Here's a link to a recent THG article with useful info about video card power requirements:
