  1. i forgot my psu..:)

    CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Retail - $159.99

    Total $1,746.42 opppppsss
  2. a nice AmdTel build

    but i'd suggest


    COOLER MASTER HAF 922 almost as big as the haf 932 and without the Amd branding
    seagate 1tb
    i7 930,gigabyte ud5 combo
    XFX 5870
    hyper 212+
    G.SKILL PI Series 6GB

    Subtotal: $1,600
    maybe add OCZ OCZTFRZTC Freeze Extreme Thermal Conductivity Compound or Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

    the ocz is a lil better but costs a lil more but good either way you go
  3. thanks.. i will change my cpu to 17 930. that would much faster than the other one.
  4. its actually the replacement for the i7 920 so its much newer
  5. im thinking of crossfire it with another 5870 in future. is my power supply can handle this?
  6. yeah that can easily handle 2 5870's you can even drop to 750watts for 2 5870's and still have room to spare
