More about : 900 common sparse gaming ready buy WR2 June 26, 2010 6:30:23 AM Hello resetovs1; Your OEM Phenom II X3 720BE CPU is missing a CPU cooler. COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus is a good option if you plan to overclock. WR2 June 26, 2010 6:34:16 AM I had to double check your PSU. Some Cooler Master PSUs aren't that great. But the Silent Pro M 600W seems to be the 'real deal' as this Hardware Secrets review shows.

Get the answer resetovs1 June 26, 2010 6:57:46 AM thanks! i see it's a bit cheaper on overstock and provantage... do you think 600w is enough? someone was telling me to go at least 650w to be safe WR2 June 26, 2010 7:08:05 AM Yes I think it's plenty. In fact it's more than enough for 2x 5770 in CF, easily. Lots of capacity to add stuff in the case, extra HDDs, a SSD, Blu-Ray drive, etc. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
