  1. Looks good to me but you need to change that PSU to a better and quality one.
    I would recommend this one:

    ANd change that hitachi hard drive to Western Digital.They are far better in making trust-able HD.
  2. look here there should be something to your liking
  3. Corsair is not avaible in the local store the only avaible psu brands are : GlacialTech , Gembird, Hantol nd A-power as for the HDD from the WD they only have 320gb
  4. ^ all the PSU makers you listed are generic, so are poor quality an dprobably won't hold up the 9550 and 4870.
  5. PSU 650W GlacialTech Intelligent Real Power i thin this is good enough it cost 100$ :P
  6. an that 100 buck overpriced power supply is gonna end up costing you 800 when you see smoke coming out your case
  7. Where are you located? If you're in the US, there's no reason to buy sub-par components from your local mom & pop shop when you can get much better components from Newegg. None of the PSU manufacturer's you mentioned are worth wasting your money on.
  8. im from macedonia no chance to buy from newegg
  9. guys i made some changes :

    1. Intel P45SG changed to asus P5Q3
    2. kingston is changed to Corsair 4GB (2x 2GB) DDR3 1600MHz, TWIN3X
    3. 650W Gembird PSU8X-Real Power,PFC,Silent,2*Fan is changed to coller master real power 620w
    4. Hitachi changed to western digital

    What do you think ?
  10. Can you buy from either of these two sites?

    They have a much better selection of power supplies and other parts.
  11. whats wrong with this parts ? give me examole , which part is wrong?
  12. I managed to locate a review of that GlacialPower PSU, it actually seems to be pretty good so you should be alright
    Its just that a bad PSU can explode and take everything else with it if you try to draw as much power as it lists especially if it is rated at peak not continuous, and by explode i think the video here shows it pretty well
    Go to 2:02ish
  13. but you didnt read my change list ? i changed PSU to Cooler Master RealPower 620w ... and read the other changes pls
  14. Ah my apologies, i missed that post, it occurred as i was typing mine. The coolermaster 620 should be fine.
  15. what about the other changes ?
  16. Everything else is fine.
