all up for both costs NZD$3645 I've basically kept the same setup just changed the obvious but i feel quite confident about it all. just need expert advice to ease the mind. any advice is as always much obliged and appreciated. Thank you.
Well the only problem I could see is that the AMD build is using an AM2 socket I think you would be better of with an AM3 socket build. Also have you checked ofr reviews on the psu?
Sorted ... Asus M4A79XTD EVO AM3 socket instead of the 785 wich i didnt pick up on, also found a review on the forums about the psu and that it's close to rubbish. So looking at others in mind. Thank you mate =)
If you tell me how much you have to spend on the power supply I could suggest some decent units, I'm guessing $150-$200 each.
Edit: In case you cant find anything or are stuck, anything from Corsair is fine & Coolermaster Silent Pro series is good, they both are a bit more expensive than the $200 mark but rule #1 Dont go cheap on the power supply. Also you shouldn't need more that 700W - 750W seeing as how you only need 600W to Xfire 5770.
