Ok, so these are the parts I have chosen for building this. I am not sure if I need a new power supply or not for this particular build, right now I am using Rosewill Green Series RG530-2 530W
I am not sure quite how much power I this, but I would be using 2-3 internal HDDs and 1 optical drive.
Are there any comments for this particular build? Is it worth getting a 5850 over a 5830 or 5770? If I do not plan to overclock at all, is the stock cooler and fan good enough for the CPU?
This is my first time attempting to build something myself, so any help I can get would be greatly appreciated
I'm not familiar with AMD mobos so I can't comment on that but all the rest seems very solid, good job. And If you don't OC the stock cooler will provide ample power but it is quite noisy. And yes it is definetly worth getting a 5850. It's the best value for money out there( the 5770 aswell but with this budget the 5850 is better).
Alright cool. Noise is not too big of an issue . Between a couple of different PSU calculaters I saw, I THINK mine will be just strong enough, but we will see. Worst comes to worse, I have to order a new power supply as well.
yeah I would also keep your current one since you actually hardly ever fully use your system no game or task will use your cpu and gpu at full force. Multitasking of course will. Did you fil in the capacitator aging in the calculator alot of people forget that?
I did not add that option. I suppose I do not really understand the options that it gives me (but I understand the reason). My PSU is not old though. I do rum my cpu almost 24/7, but I also have only had this PSU since last summer (New egg says june 2009) when my old stock psu for this PC died on me.
