New to the forum. Wanted to get some feedback on my current setup. I wanted to get a powerful CPU that could handle virtualization and double as a home-based workstation for my day-to-day activities. After looking at some online manufacturers I decided to build a system.
Please provide any and all feedback
PC Case ($79.99) - COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black Computer Case
Power Supply ($109.99) - COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M700 RS-700-AMBA-D3 700W Power Supply
MotherBoard ($119.99) - ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 ATX AMD Motherboard
CPU ($118.99) - AMD Athlon II X4 645 3.1GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
RAID Controller ($149.99) - HighPoint RocketRAID 2680 PCI-Express x4 Eight-Port SATA and SAS RAID Controller Card
Hard Drives ($69.99) - Western Digital Caviar Blue 640GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Video ($159.99) - ATI FireGL V3600 100-505507 Workstation Video Card
The system comes in around $800, closer to $1000 with memory upgrade.
The PSU is way overkill, get a better CPU instead. That Seasonic is fine and you have room to spare. That video card needs only 50W. a Phenom II X4/X6 125W, HDD, blah blah blah, even a 400W PSU is fine.
