Hello, not so long ago I posted an AMD rig. I have now tweaked it and changed it a bit.
I will be using it for 1920x1080 gaming (like gta4 and crysis) and general use.
My budget is £600.
I do not plan to sli/xfire.
I will almost certainly OC the cpu and the GPU.
Approx purchase date=in the next 2-3 weeks. (mobo and cpu till last in case bulldozer is amazing and affordable)
The following rig will cost me £608 ( dont worry I will live) and I will buy the parts from novatech (close by, no need to pay for shipping and risk getting my kit damaged and lost)
Will this rig work?
And is there a different setup I could have which will get me more performance at a similar price?
And what else do I need? Is a surge protector thing necessary, and do cases come with built in optical drives or do I have to buy that?
Thanks, I will check out that link now.
I wont always be gaming, I need it for schoolwork and stuff. I also like to multi-task a lot so 6 cores will be very helpful.
EDIT: The result was 579W. But I had to go for nvidia 570 as 560 wasnt there.
I think I will go 650W for ocing headroom and future upgrades.
Nvidia says that the Minimum System Power Requirement for the 560 is 500W and 570 is 550W.
So if I took 50 away from 579 my psu should be 529W.
Will the remaining 21W (if I went with the 550W psu) be enough for an OC headroom?
