QUESTIONS: Is 500w PSU enough? I only plan on using 1 GPU. Hows the MOBO with this setup? Is it adequate enough?

  1. looks good, although you could get 4GB of ram and a 4890 for the same price as those Reaper's and a GTX 260.

  3. ^ you still have to pay for it though, and if something goes wrong after you send in the rebate then you can't return them.
  4. Point taken, I am just going for more bang/buck. I live in CA so I have to pay tax also. I just want to make sure that PSU is good for this setup. Also to make sure GPU will work with this MOBO.
  5. the PSU combo isn't there anymore, just checked.

    edit: whoops, was looking at the am3 version of that mobo.
  6. Yeah, I just saw, thank goodness it was in my cart.

    I went and purchased my build. Thank you for your input. Everyone here at Tom's are very helpful. I think I got a good build with everyone's help, and a little under budget. Woohoo!
