Final check off on i5 build please help Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: December 3, 2009 7:01 PM in Systems Share swirlyyy December 2, 2009 6:16:24 PM Hi, I am going to order the parts listed below by the end of tonight and I would really appreicate it if you guys will help see if my parts are compatible and good, and if there are any better/cheaper parts out there that would make my computer just as good please feel free to share. This is my first build, I am super noob at it and please feel free to make any suggestions. My budget was originally $700 but I got tired of waiting for better deals and want to just build my computer already. However if you guys know cheaper parts please let me know, I would really want to stay under my $700 dollar budget. The [v] means I already have it.

More about : final check build p55ibexpeak December 3, 2009 6:36:13 PM Guess I'm too late to post, but you got the right parts for the build. The PSU needs to be at least 500W with 2 6-pin PCI-E connectors. Your PSU exceeds these requirements. Though the PSU and HDD could have been cheaper.
