    To put it bluntly..that Kingwin is junk. You can buy it and use it for a paper weight, door stop...a gift to someone you really hate, etc...
  6. i guess i wont take the risk then. is the ram fine?

    what about this psu?

    That's a good psu...it's on par with that Antec I linked you to. Also that RAM is fine...although if you want to save another $10 and get the same performance as that G.Skill...check this out down below..it's on sale atm.

  8. yeah the psu should be changed to the antec 750w why_me posted

    the silverline is also really cheap right now


    If you don't need the extra space go for the 320gb drive personally I don't any music, movies, pictures, etc. so my 500gb drive is filled with only 80gb of games OS and programs.

    Later buy a vertex 3 pro (or other sf-2000 based SSD) and put games+OS+heavily used programs on it

    Looks good :D
  9. If you plan to add another gtx 570 in the coming year and you will be running this with more hard drives in the future (6 320gb in a RAID 1+0 would be interesting) I would suggest getting an 850w psu this cougar is not widely known but is a good psu and is real cheap if you use promo and MIR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817553006&Tpk=cougar%20sx850

    the 750w should be able to handle dual 570s if you only have 2 hard drives and 1 ssd and run the computer 6hrs. a day at heavy load (gaming)
  10. Well about an extra gtx570 is possible. And the only thing i download are games and movies and some programs. Right now im using like almost 80g and thats it. So i really dont think i need 1tb

    I really dont see the idea of having more than one hdd. Can you please explain why people use multiple hd

    Some people are download freaks...moves, music, etc... and never delete anything off their pc. I use a single 1tb hd myself and I doubt if I have more than 120 gigs used up. I'l probably never use even half of that drive up during my life time but it was so cheap I couldn't pass it up.
  12. Oh wow... I really dont download much. I think im fine between 120g and 320g. So my hdd is fine or is slow?

    I guess im going to buy the antec then.
  13. HDD should be fast 7200, single platter, go with the antec.
  14. i just bought the Mobo/Proccesor, cpu fan and the Case

    is everything in the list ok? so i can press buy =)


  15. Looks good :)
  16. Press Buy :D
  17. is the antec 750w enough for 2 gtx 570?
  18. it should be :D
  19. oh wow thats great.....Thanks for the help to both of you
