Looking for MOBO and PSU recommendations for budget gaming rig
I am putting together components to build a gaming rig. This is what I have so far, I need recommendations for a Motherboard and a PSU. I would like to keep the costs of both of these to 250 max, so a total cost of 750 with below parts.
For MOBO I would like AM3+ and crossfire capable as I may add another video card in the future.
If you plan to add a Crossfire setup, you should get a 900w+ Powersupply. High end cards can require up to 800w+ alone without including fans and other gadgets in your PC. Personally I'd opt for a 1000w to be safe and somewhat future proof yourself. Buying another PSU later on is a hassle, and something I've had personal experience with. Personally I like Rosewill/Thermaltake/Coolermaster/Antec. But at least get an 80 plus bronze or higher certified PSU. Good PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182188 Good luck!
