  1. I've also got one more question, will 530 watt be enough to power everything ?
  2. hmm, no one any comment ?
  3. bump
  4. Let me give this a shot.

    1. If you don't need usb 3.0, you can save some money with this mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130290

    2. I've never heard of the PSU you selected. The companies that make good, reliable psus are: seasonic, corsair, antec, xfx, sometimes ocz, and sometimes thermaltake. A better psu (with more power to boot) would be http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207002&cm_re=xfx_650w-_-17-207-002-_-Product

    3. Here's a handle power calculator: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
    It doesn't have the gtx 460 yet, but if you overclock your cpu and add a gtx 465, you're getting close to 500w.
  5. 1. USB 3.0 will become the Standard and 2.0 will die out, so if i were you i would stick with the ASUS.

    2. Be Quiet is a first class PSU manufacturer which specializes itself in Silent PSU. The model you chose won't go above 33 dB at full load. I my opinion Be Quiet is better then Seasonic and Corsair.

    3. I think that 530 watt will be enough.
  6. Do you have a site in there, Newegg doesn't ship in Europe from what I know. I think the Brits ship to Netherlands:

    e-buyers does not ship outside the UK if I am not mistaking.
    I would recommend azerty.nl if you live in the Netherlands.
