First time, how's this setup? Tags: New Build Systems Last response: September 15, 2009 12:27 AM in Systems Share msf5042 September 8, 2009 1:12:52 PM Hey guys, this is my first time building a computer, what do you think of this setup and is there anything I have overlooked? processor: i7 965 graphics card: Radeon HD 4870 hard drive: 1TB WD power supply: corsair 750w case: Antec Nine Hundred Two optical drive: Sony Optiarc motherboard: EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1 memory: OCZ 12gb DDR3 More about : time setup evongugg September 8, 2009 1:49:09 PM It's a good setup. If you haven't bought the parts yet, you might want to consider i5-870, which came out today. msf5042 September 8, 2009 1:58:28 PM Thanks. Do you think I am definitely good with that power supply? Do I need any other coolers or fans or anything? I'm an amateur here.

Already purchased everything but the PSU saint19 September 8, 2009 3:34:37 PM The i7 965 is really good for overcloking, i mean that if you want to do overclok the CPU maybe the PSU isn't enough. AMDThunder September 8, 2009 4:06:48 PM Unless there's something about the i7 965 power requirements that I'm not aware of, the Corsair 750 should be plenty. msf5042 September 15, 2009 12:20:03 AM i set this thing up and the bios isnt coming up on my HD LG monitor. it really seems like everything is put together right. did i miss something? psycho sykes September 15, 2009 12:27:17 AM http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-read-postin...
