More about what guys think
  1. PSU is not a good one

    MoBo / CPU are "dead end" technology

    GFX card is overpriced for what it does...and is also not DX11 capable....will start to matter come XMas season when lotsa new games come out.

    To see how much power you need....use this:


    To pick what PSU you want, use this:


    With a 4 GHz OC, I'd be looking for a 650 watter with a 9.5 - 10.0 jonnyguru.com performance rating .... 850 watter if ya might ever go w/ a 2nd GFX card
  2. ok so since i already bought the mobo and its a nvidia chip set and sli ready does this mean i have to buy only nvidia graphics or can i put crossfire on this board
  3. I'm gonna have to disagree with Timop. As you can see here:


    the 780i chipset on your MoBo does NOT support Crossfire.

    New boards containing the X58 / P55 chipsets will support both Crossfire and SLI but your board does not have an Intel chipset. Oldr socket 775 boards such as those w/ the nVidia 780i chipset only supports SLI.
