My $640 Build (need some advice)

Hey guys here is a pic of my build that I have been working on. First off I want to know if everything is compatible. Secondly, the reason I have a 750W PSU is because I want to upgrade in the future to dual 5770 and also more memory. Is the PSU sufficient enough for that? This all come to $640 after MIR and free gift card. Thanks for the help and check it out!



THANKS :bounce:

  4. 600W is enough for your crossfire. For gaming more than 4G of RAM doesn't help.

    Ya, i do more than gaming. I use Photoshop, FRAPS, Vegas, 3dsmax, and I do a bit off multi-tasking while programming in C/C++/Python/Java and other sorts of web development.

    Are you sure 600W is enough?? I want to be sure before I make a final decision on what PSU.

    Thanks

    Ya at peak load and not even all of the items I would necessarily have is 646W. (according to that)

    Thanks
  7. No, less than 400W with crossfire and 4 sticks of RAM.

    With the Phenom X4 955 BE? Not what your calculator said.
  9. You're doing something wrong in there. A HD5770 consumes 108W in load. Two of them, 216W. Add the 125W of the CPU and 50W for all the rest and you're under 400W. 550W-600W is fine.

    Ok thanks
  11. Can someone help me find a PSU on newegg or tiger that will be sufficient and cheap. I can combo up with cd/dvd burner or Hard Drive if you find a deal.

    Please help me find something at a decent price above 500W.

    Thanks
  12. It says "The PSU is ready for your SLI or CrossFire configuration with 2 PCIe connections."
