  1. All of it looks good :D

    Have fun with the build
  2. lol thanks : )
  3. Well are you getting a pre- assembled pc or going to assemble yorself...
    If you are getting parts from newegg.com, there are better options...
  4. No it's not pre-assembled :)
  5. Well we could suggest alternate/better options if you are willing to check it out...
    Is it fine referrences are given from newegg??
  6. Yes tell me : )
  7. You can get 6GB DDR3 1600 for around the same price...

    The dominators are no doubt the best but it is required only if you are planning for an extreme overclock...

    As for the HDD, get this one...
    Bigger and better...

    And as for you graphics card and monitor, the GTX 295 is a overkill ...
    the monitor has a resolution 1080p, for which even a single GTX 275 would be suffice...
    But if you want the best, then I would suggest you get 2 GTX 275in SLI, which totals to around $500 and it will be more powerful than the GTX 295...
    and later you can add one more in triple-sli...

  8. And the PSU is one of the most powerful I have seen but its equally costly too...
    Maybe you can get the corsair 850TX, save some money there...but its not modular though...
  9. ok but the problem is that I already have a gtx 295 xD
    What monitor should be good for this card?
  10. Perfect!
    Thank u :)


    Ah..for the UPS? I think I'll need one ^^
  11. Well about UPS, it would be fine but I think you cannot game for long on UPS during power cuts :P
  12. But if you want a more powerful one, then check this out...

  13. Aye obviously xD I will need only 1 min to shutdown normally the pc ahah xD
  14. Yeah no less than 19x12 res, and even at that res the GTX 295 is going to be able to max out everything.

    The PSU is at an awkward place. For one GTX 295, its overkill for your system, but if you wanted to SLI later, its not enough. I would go with a lesser PSU like this one for one GTX 295 (and since it seems like you want modular):
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256035
    or a non modular:

    If you want to SLI later:

    Uhm but this one has

    Waveform Type
    Stepped approximation to a sinewave

    So ( I think ) it will break the enermax 1050W :(
  16. Well...frankly I dont know much details about the UPS...So that is left to you... :)

    :D Had given the HDD and a corsair 850TX suggestion...
    But I have never come across a PSU like the Enermax...
    It has 6 12V rail, which gives out 30A each, totalling 180A :o
  18. Uhm I think I'll take a 1050 Enermax... for a future SLI xD
  19. Yeah that Enermax is a beast. It is a very highly rated PSU. It can't deliver 180A at the same time, up to 87 if you look at a picture of the label, but that is plenty. If it could deliver 180A then it would be a 2200w PSU :lol: (12v*180A=2160W).
