I’m planning on ordering my parts Tuesday for what will be my first build and just wanted to make sure everything will work together and if this is a good power/value proposition. I don’t plan to overclock right away, but I will probably experiment down the line. I do plan on dropping in another Radeon 5770 after a while and I’ve been told this PSU will be fine for that.
My biggest question is about this old case I salvaged from a gaming PC I had built for me about 5 years ago and I wanted to make sure it was an ATX size. Also, will those two fans be enough for this kind of machine or should I try to mod in another (maybe where the floppy drives are)?
Here's some pictures of my case. It measures 16 x 18 x 7.75 inches. Will the GPU (later two) fit in it all right?
And here are the parts I’m purchasing:
ASRock 880G EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
If this sounds good to you guys, I’ll be ordering later tonight (Tuesday) and build it over the weekend if it all arrives on times. I’m still open to suggestions and I REALLY appreciate all the recommendations, tips, and suggestions from your community.
the PSU is the single msot important part of the build, and the alst area you should try and save cash. roseqill make horrible low quality PSUs. get a corsair vx550 or a similar model from seasonic, antec or PC P&C.
^ Get the Corsair 650TX...though a 600W PSU can do the job, but that Corsair 650, would be better and also might last you even for your next build...
As for the cards fitting, the HD 5770s are not very long like the HD 58xx series cards...It is about 8-8.5" long...So just measure the distance from the back panel to the HDD cage...Seeing the image and the case dimensions, I dont think you would have any issues...
It is 12 inches of space between the back panel and HDD cage, so I'm fine their. Just wondering, the On/Off switch on the case that needs to plug into the motherboard: That's a universal connection right? It hasn't been changed recently, has it?
^ If your case is an ATX, then you will not have any issues with the power button...
After the change from non-ATX to ATX, it has not been changed...
You build is good to go...Good Luck...
Maybe this combo ??
Mobo + Mushkin DDR3 1333MHz CAS 8(So its timings are as good as that GSKillz, but quality IMO better)So after rebates you get this RAM for same price as that GSKillz... http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
