What are you going to use this system for?If it is for gaming computer get a 5850 or a gtx 470 instead. I would recommend for the PSU a corsair 750w because it will be able to power a CF of 5850 in the future if you need more power to play games.

so fast...

Basically this pc is for using different CAD systems with engineering simulation. I would like to use it without any upgrade in coming future.

How do you think which Win OS is better to use in this PC?
Currently I am in WinXP,pack2 and I like it. I do not like anything very new and unstable.

For a CAD workstation there is no need to splash on a pricey 700 series 8/8 CFboard - i'd hit the 870 series or 880G if u like to have IGP as a back up in case the discrete goes AWOL :p  I would say the XFX 650/Corsair 650TX/ Antec EA650 PSU would do fine ^^

So 650 W PSU is enough right?

How do you think is any requirement for OS for this system?

700w 80+ certified cooler master..

sure, just bought 650W

You did'nt mention your requirements fully, as to what you'll be using the PC for. If it's just for gaming, really a quad should be plenty.

Actually, to be honest most games don't even require 4 cores. So a high end dual core is plenty for gaming, really.

But if you've made your mind up on having a few extra cores from AMD, :)  I'll suggest you go with this AMD Athlon II X4 640 & save yourself some money or invest it in a high end GPU like the Radeon HD 5870.

Also you need'nt even have bought a 650 watt PSU if you are not planning to Xfire any time soon :)

calguyhunk,

Basically this pc targeted to use for CAD works and simulation. Fire GL v8600 was one of certified for CAD, there were only Fire GL series from ATi and Quadro fx from Nvidia.

Ye I already bought 650W after last post., anyway thanx.
I guess it is better If I use Windows Vista Ultimate, Business and Enterprise editions only (SP1 or higher) or Windows Vista x64.

no wait, I have few more questions. I bought Corsair 650TX and does it fit with any pc case?

Yes as long as the case could house standard ATX form factor PSUs

Hi

Can you guide me on which cable is used for my VGA ATI FireGL V8600 1GB. It comes with 2 same cables. I have also cable in PSU which is also can be used. That included cable has one 4 pin male cable (I guess to PSU) and one 6 pin female cable where only three has of holes are has connection other three are empty.

Can someone tell me how to use these cables?

I connected PCIe cable from PSU to my VGA but it has still 8 pin male place. I do not know should I use it ?
