Separate that better to make it readable, its a pretty useless blob of text right now with all the newegg numbers and return policies merging into the next item on the list.


Only thing i spot, GX 750 PSU, dont get a Cooler Master GX series power supply, they have failed multiple reviews. Get a good 750W unit from Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, or Antec.

Want to build as is. Mostly good comments. I am not sure about the hard drive and the 6 gb tansfer rate. Also I don't know much about ssd but they look rather expensive so I did not consider it. Finally, it looks like the optical will play and burn dvd and cds and play blu ray

Thanx

I really advise against the GX 750, it may be in a nice combo but it has FAILED multiple review, i dont mean it didnt get the recommendation, i mean it straight up failed because the ripple went out of ATX spec at moderately high load. High ripple can damage your components and kill your system sooner than it should die. Get a good PSU or get cheap crap for the rest of the components. It really doesnt matter how good of a combo they are putting it in, and what rebate it has on it, you should stay clear of it.

from the hardware secrets review:

"If you are looking for a mainstream 750 W power supply our recommendation is still Seventeam ST-750P-AF, which is USD 20 cheaper than Cooler Master GX 750 W and provides better performance (namely higher efficiency and lower noise levels). Of course GX 750 W offers as advantages having four power cables for video cards and more SATA power connectors, but it is only safe to run this new Cooler Master unit up to 450 W."

  • Intrigued by your answer. Do you recommend another video card to make a SLI? Crossfire seems more attractive. In the past the SLI needed 2 identical cards. Is that different now? With 2 cards the price of the system equals the amd. Are you more partial to the i5 than the phenom?

    It is not sold on newegg. Is there one there you would recommend? I can use another dealer but I have always been happy with neweggs ram. Am I overspending and are there cheaper components that would work as well?

    Actually the video card recommendation is simply from another build post and is rather inexpensive after MIR; you never really explained what was the purpose of this build so we are making assumptions. As for the CPU, Intel has the crown by a fair margin and it overclocks like crazy, the only reason I see to go AMD is to save $$$ and the 6 core isn't really a money saver.
