New PC build help Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: November 27, 2010 6:12 PM in Systems Share Trioxin November 27, 2010 11:37:17 AM Hello all So, after saving up some money I've decided to build me a new PC. So far I've decided on a few things. Intel i7 950 Gigabyte X58A-UD5 DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Noctua NH-D14 HDD WD 1Tb Caviar Black Here are the items I just can't make up my mind. Graphics card - Should I wait for AMD Radeon 6970, or maybe get something else. PSU - I've been thinking about Corsair 650W HX, will it be enough to run this machine? Case - Can't decided between Corsair Obsidian and Cosmos S RC-1100 (I'm leaning a bit more toward Obsidian) Monitor - HP ZR24W or Dell U2410 (PC will be mostly for gaming and movies, with a touch of Photoshop) So, what do you guys think, tips and advice are welcome.

GPU: I'd wait, and I'd also wait for intel SB. (which I actually am doing) Trioxin November 27, 2010 2:00:13 PM Can't buy on newegg, I'm pretty much stuck with the local shops (Croatia, Europe). Corsair is pretty much the best brand of PSU I can get, so I'll get my hands on 750W HX then. Guess I'll try and wait hehe. It's hard 'cos atm I'm working with Athlon 1800+, 768 RAM and GeForce 4Ti, so I'm really looking forward to my next machine.
