Purpose: Coursework, some gaming (hopefully at least @ high settings), movie editing (not a lot).
First of all, my budget is ~$800-$900 (U.S. location) and
I will be buying all of my parts from Newegg (Maybe Petra's for fans).
Here it is:
•CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
•GPU: XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB
•RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600
•Mobo: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD
•Case: Antec 300 Illusion
•PSU: Antec EarthWatts 650W
•Heatsink: KINGWIN XT-1264 120mm
•Case Fan: Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F (1)
•HDD: WD Caviar Black 640GB Optical: ASUS DRW-24B1ST
•OS: Buy Later @ Discount
-Will this fit my needs? (The Video card doesn't have rave reviews for some reason, anyone can explain?)
-Are the parts compatible (Can someone verify?)
-Will the heatsink be sufficient?
If you guys have any recommendations, I'd appreciate it. Thanks
the 5770 uses barely 400W, the 530W would still have plenty of headroom.
Thanks a lot, that puts my concerns to a halt. I appreciate it Timop
About the Vapor, I've seen benchmarks of it and it seems to perform a tad better than the original 5770, but who knows..
I will consider the Asus one and take a look. Tyvm again
