I've been reading the forums for a few days, and I figured I would post my build before I purchase the parts. Basically I don't need a gaming computer since I barely have time to play games, I'm a big multi tasker and I decided to go with the Q6600, my budget is $600 with shipping included (I know a bit tight)
OS I own a copy of Vista Ultimate
Monitor I have a 22"
DVD Burner I have a Lite-On I purchased a week ago.
Vid Card I have a BFG Nvidia GeForce 8500 GT 512DDR2
So what I really need is RAM, MOBO, CPU, CASE, PSU, HD so here's what I picked at newegg
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $49.95
Western Digital Caviar SE WD2500AAJS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive $47.99
PC Power & Cooling S75CF 750W EPS12V SLI NVIDIA SLI Certified $99.99
well if its the same price...and maybe he gets time later when he would game and decides to get a better video card?
If there is no chance that you would ever get a better video card to go into your system, then yeah it makes no sense to get that larger psu, but if you think maybe you would, then go for it, I think. That's my 2 cents.
