ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I've helped on different builds before but I'm trying to minimize my build as I'm going to be moving a lot in the next few months and I go to a lotta lan parties as is. My biggest question at the moment is am I maximizing my monies worth in terms of mobo/graphics card and is the ram decent enough (or would you recommend others). I've had good luck buying parts thus far and generally I'm getting good quality but my friend who checks me isn't in the states and I can't get ahold of him. Any help is greatly appreciated =)
Please, do yourself a favor... don't get a Rosewill PSU. It says 850 watts, but I would bet my left nut that it only hits 850 watts output in a lab that's kept just above freezing temps. Spend the 100 bucks on a quality PSU from Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, OCZ etc. Sure they might not say 850 watts (for 100 bucks) but it's clean, true power.
Damn you guys have been busy, sorry had to do some work. So stay away from Rosewill. I like those cases I'll probably jump to the NZXT vulcan, ASUS Maximus III, and the Cavier Black while taking out the SSD. Think the GPU is good enough or would you make any recommendations on that?
