  1. Power supply, Video card, and hard drive could be better. Ram looks kinda sketch, what voltage is it?

    PSU: Get a name-brand model, preferably seasonic, XFX, or Corsair.
    Hard drive: 7200.12 has a very bad record for stability, get a samsung f3.
    Vid card: Save 20$ and get more performance with a 470.
    Ram: If it runs at 1.5 volts, it's good. If not, look at a G.skill kit that does.
  2. cant change ram or psu, was looking at the 470 but i heard it runs quite hot and is power hungry
  3. Well, it does run hot, but if your case is decent that won't be an issue. Power might be depending on where you live. It's a good deal faster, and cheaper.
  4. Why can't you change ram? And why can't you change your PSU? No offense man but those are bad choices
  5. i know they are bad but i live in south africa i dont have much choice
  6. im needing a pc that will last me a while so i was thinking of good a good quality mobo and cpu and later get a cpu cooler, my pc has to last me about 5 years, will the gtx 470 have a shorter lifespan than the 5850 as it runs quite a bit hotter
