Read some reviews, did some research, and came up with these parts for my build. I have been out of the loop with computer hardware for a few years but I think this all works. If there is any incompatible parts or if anyone has reccomendations, feel free to let me know. I know I want the CPU and GPU I have chosen for sure. Thanks
If you want to crossfire then you have chosen the wrong motherboard and you can get better PSUs. Otherwise it's fine, altho it would be nice to be able to get a really good 500W PSU for cheaper than that Cooler Master, which either isn't going to happen or will be hard to find.
This one is what I think of as a much better PSU and it is the same price: Antec EarthWatts EA650 $90 This one actually has enough amps on it's 12V rails for it to be able to crossfire 5850s.
I don't plan on crossfire, and I really dont plan on spending any money to upgrade this until I need to do a new build.
The one part I was unsure of was the PSU. That one is 600W (and maxes out at 700W), is that overkill? I like how it's modular, and reviews say it is very quiet and good quality. Should I switch, or leave it as is?
Build looks good. PSU is fine for the build but personally I would prefer a higher quality unit. The 5850 Toxic has been creeping up in price, but you may as well buy it now because I don't think it's coming down anytime soon.
