Gaming System, input appreciated....

thanks to this awesome forum i have come up with a list of components that i feel will make a sweet gaming system on a medium budget. One thing i would like to point out, i plan to connect a 65" flat panel to this pc. Are there any different requirments that i may have overlooked. I do expect to run games (Black Ops, Killzone, TF2) in 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Coolermaster HAF-922
Antec True Power New 650
Asus P8P67 pro
Intel i5-2500k
2x4gb corsair cas 9
GTX 570- EVGA superclock
Spinpoint F3 1tb
DVD writer Asus 24x DRW-24B3L

(again i got this list off of this forum, sorry dont know who the author was, but thanks!)

Thanks in advance

  1. Loops pretty good. Do you plan to do any overclocking of GPU or CPU? Do you plan to add another 570 in the future? If so, I'd probably bump the PSU up to the 750 - 850 range, using a brand like Antec, PC Power and Cooling, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX.
  2. I have never done any overclocking but would like the option. And yes another 570 is an option, will the Asus P8P67 support SLI?

    Yes, the P8P67 PRO will support SLI with 8x/8x bandwidth for the PCI-E lanes. If you are looking to add another GTX 570 in the future, I'd check out a PSU like this one:

    Very efficient, is 10% off with promo code.
  4. Thanks mortonww. That is a big help.
  5. Actually, I just looked at the gtx 570 page on newegg and it says it requires a minimum of 38 amps on the 12 volt rail. The PSU I linked only provides a total of 62 amps on the 12 volt rails. I would imagine 2 570's would need at least 76 total amps on the 12 volt rail/rails. Hmmm, I'm wondering if that means you need something more like this:

    You should wait for more input before purchasing, I think.

    EDIT: The 12 Volt rail also supplies the CPU, which at 95 Watts, needs about 95/12 ~ 8 Amps. Until you overclock. So maybe the overclocked card itself only needs around 30 or a little less. Which would mean adding another would add another 30 amps, so a psu with 68 or so amps might be fine to give you overclocking headroom for cpu and gpu.
