Thanks More about : 890fx build rdy buy Lmeow May 1, 2010 8:20:51 PM Looks good, but epic overkill on power supply. A Corsair HX650W is more than enough, but if you don't feel comfortable with 650W, then the HX750W. m 0 l HighHandz May 1, 2010 8:38:41 PM Will 750 be enough when I add two 5850's at a later date? P.s. I use newegg's wattage calc. m 0 l Related resources Getting rdy to build a new syst - Forum 890fx boards for new build - Forum 1k$ PC Build - rdy to hit submit order! - Forum New 890FX Board - Asus or Gigabyte? - Forum Should I buy and build now or wait for new standards? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

You can also drop down to a X3 for gaming use and save some money. WAY too much money on the heat sink. Get a Hyper 212+. If you want silence, spend about a $100-120 more and go water cooling (which is a better investment imo if silence is golden to you). m 0 l HighHandz May 1, 2010 9:28:54 PM Ok so 750W PSU, a little bit more money for faster ram, good pick. I went to frosty tech and they rated the Noctua NH-D14 as the best one (but ya, a lot of money) I don`t want to mess around with water cooling atm. m 0 l Shadow703793 May 1, 2010 11:05:22 PM ^ It's #2 on the list. But imo, it's over priced. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedNeed help! Upgrade PC, Buy/build new gaming PC, or buy PS4? Forum SolvedOwn build laptop or buy new?
