ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:I mainly watch anime/movies and play playstation emulators. I want a computer that will let me play FO3, Oblivion, Dragon Age and newer games
I got a GeForce 9600 GT for cheap a while back but found out my power supply (in my current computer) was too low. So I figure I'll use that until I get sick of it and buy a newer one.
I'm trying to build a computer for the first time. I just want someone who has experience in this stuff to double check my setup and tell me if all the parts are compatible and anything else I should look out for. Here are my parts:
The PSU you suggested only has a 12V rail @18A. I already own the 9600GT and it recommends 12V @26A on the box, is there something I'm not understanding correctly about power supplies? The 12V @60A seemed like a good overkill to assure I could power whatever I put in it. Also what is the difference between the two mobos? The one you suggested is like $20 more for an IEEE port.
In response to daggs, I want a mobo and PSU that will allow me to upgrade to a better Video card later. I already bought the 9600 for my current computer but my PSU wasn't strong enough.
^ About the PSU that I have listed - OCZ Mod - It has 2 12V rails - each with 18A...So in total it has 36A...
But the PSU is a very good one too...
But I would suggest you this case + PSU combo...For that price, it is a solid deal... http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
