New setup

Hi guys,

i'm getting a new setup and I want to know if everything will be fine.

MSI X58M X58 mATX LGA1366
Intel Core i7 920 D0
OCZ Platinum 6GB DDR3 3x2GB
2 XFX Radeon HD 4890 XT 1GB 875MHZ in crossfire
Corsair TX850W power supply
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB
Samsung SH-S223Q/BEBS 22x DVD+-RW
Antec nine hundred two case
Thermalright ultra 120 extreme 1366rt cooling
Microsoft windows vista home premium edition 64bit
for about $2100 with tax

So I just want to know if this setup will run correctly. I asked for this setup at like 5 retailers and 2 or 3 of them told me that my motherboard isn't good enough for what I want, that the power supply won't work fine because of the voltage that isn't correct or somethin like that and that the XFX model breaks more faster and that the customer support is better on the Asus model.

With what they are telling me to change the price goes up to $2500-$2800 with tax.

My friend who helped me with this setup told me that they are just trying to sell me more expensive stuff that I don't really need. What do you guys think about it ?

p.s. sorry for my bad English.

You should tell them that are idiots and they should stop lieing people. That power supply is a good PSU and is exactly what you need. Even with a lower PSU like 750 you should be fine. It's a good choice.
Probably you should think about the motherboard and get something better like Gigabyte or Asus.

So what do you think of the Asus P6T SE X58 instead of the MSI X58M, is that a better choice ?

P6T deluxe V2 would be the best. but the P6T is really nice too. Gigabyte are excellent too.

Your build is fine. Really fine. You could buy only one HD4890. enjoy it, and sell it back when the DX11 card come in store. My opinion.

have fun !

if ur really sure you 1t a matx board, that one is good
look for good reviews on the ram i go with kingston every time
alot of people dont hav nice things to say about seagate, try wd caviar black or the samsung

you might not need the 900 two, the 900 is cheaper and i dont see you needing the 900 2s extras

true is a big cooler sure the case is big enough ps corsair is ated the #1 psu maker

good luck

It's a game rig and I don't think matx is a good idea that's why I suggested a normal motherboard. You can't go wrong with Gigabyte or Asus.
Your OCZ ram is good so stick to that. I think Coolermaster Storm Scout it's also an alternative for your case. I'm not so sure if it will be able to sustain 2 grapfic cards. You should check it. Maybe you should look for something bigger.
Everything else is looking go so go for it.

What monitor res.??? Your GPU's look a bit overkill. Corsair HX series PSU's have better ratings that the TX series.

I'm planning on getting a 1920x1080, but for now my monitor can do 1680x1050 so I might stick to it a little and then buy a new one.

Then buy only one graphic card. It should be enough.

Drop $1,000 off you budget and try again.

At 1680x1050 your min fps will be off the charts.

Better yet - buy a 720BE and Asus 790fx AM3 and get your second HD4890 1Gb for 'free'.
