AMD AM3 DDR3 BUILD

I am looking in to building a new system based on the following;

Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P AMD AM3 790FX ATX £129.94

AMD PHENOM II X4 965 AM3 BLACK EDITION £155.19

ATi Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E £122.95

Antec PSU EarthWatts 650W 80+ EPS12v 2.91 £65.99

The Antec has three 12V rails compared to the Corsair TX650 which is £5 more and has one. Is the Corsair worth an extra £5?

I also wanted some recommendations for some decent DDR3 1600MHz RAM around £70-80.

Any comments or better prices welcome, thanks.

  1. The Corsair does tend to get better reviews than the EA, but both are solid. Also I would drop down to a 955, drop down to a GX if you're keeping that GPU - if you had two, the performance hit would be negligible, or possibly upgrade the GPU depending on your res.
