That 750w is overkill for x-fire I would recommend the corsair 650w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that GPU is 10 times overkill for your monitor, up your monitor or get a 60 dollar GPU | Report abuse shortstuff_mt November 18, 2009 7:36:51 PM The build is looking pretty good. One thing, though. You don't want an old Samsung F1 hard drive. You should be looking for the new F3 model. Newegg is currently out of stock, but this site has them. SAMSUNG HD502HJ 500GB SATA 3.0 7200 RPM 16MB Buffer Hard Drive Retail $54.99 They actually use better packaging than Newegg for hard drives. | Report abuse broncsrock30 November 18, 2009 7:40:49 PM I know the graphics card is overkill for the monitor I have now but I will be upgrading it within the next 6 months, and the 650w power supply will be enough if I add another 5770 down the line? Also def adding that hard drive | Report abuse sonic-boom November 18, 2009 7:44:49 PM Yes that 650w Corsair will be enough to crossfire. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Budget gaming build> Related ressources: ForumGaming Build : Budget $2,300 ForumNew gaming pc build £700 ($1050) budget ForumIs this a good budget gaming build ??
