More about build look
  1. Looks good. Two thoughts..

    PSU - A 850w power supply is overkill unless you are planning on running dual GPUs down the road. A 650w is fine for a single GPU.

    MEM - 16GB of memory? Doing anything special that needs that much memory?
  2. I eventually plan on SLI'ing 580's but until a game comes out that demands the GPU power I will wait and ....yeah I was thinking 8 GB may do just fine. I only use it for Gaming and occasional video editting using SONY Vegas.
  3. 16gb of ram??

    Get a WD 500 or 1TB drive, don't get the older 640. It's based on 320gb platters.
  4. Ah so RAID format two 500gb blacks?
  5. You are pretty much set then... Reduce the memory to 8GB, replace the HD as GeekApproved stated (good catch!), and pull the trigger. Enjoy that build!!

    Nah... Stick with a single drive. Either a 1TB or 500GB WD Black, Samsung F3 1TB or Samsung F4 2TB.
  7. The Spinpoint F3 I was going to buy ....thanks!
