More about what guys this spec
  1. Seems solid. The psu might be a lil overkill though
  2. Yea looks good

    But as someguy said, PSU is a bit overkill.
    U could get away with the 750w easy even if u CF
  3. i know the 850W is kind of high but, What rang should i aim for?
  4. Well are you gonna overclock you PC ???
    And this PSU should be good...

  5. And a suggestion though...
    You can change the mobo to this...
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128384
    And graphics card to this...
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150359

    No difference in the budget but significant difference in performance...

    And also if you dont want to change the mobo, you would have to spend about $50 more as you would have saved $20 on the PSU...
  6. no, not going to overclock it just want it running fast enough to render video and game graphics. Also i thought about the

    GIGABYTE GA-MA790GP-UD4H AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

    but went with the other one because i could upgrade later-

    is the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006
    compatible with the AMD motherboard? Thats my only real concern thanks again for your help--
  7. I'd say go with the 902, better styling. And get it from Buy instead of newegg. The rest of the build looks good. In one of your post too you said your not going to o.c. it, just thought I'd put it out that there is no harm in doing a mild o.c. except getting more performance for free.

  8. Well, since it should be enough performance for you now you can always overclock the CPU latter if you want a little more performance. I would recommend getting something other than the stock cooler though if you would like to do a significant overclock. The PSU is a good choice and will allow you to do triple crossfire, though you'll need to use those molex adapters for the third card if you do that ^_^.

    Yes the 750TX is compatible...
    And with that mobo also you can upgrade...And the 790FX mobos are very good if you are willing to overclock...And as you are not going to overclock, no point getting the costlier board...The 790GX mobos will perform as good as the 790FX for stock settings...
    And would save money for buying a powerful card...
  10. The Antec 90X cases do not come with a system speaker.
