Anything you see or want to comment on Thanks! More about : build sadams04 a b B Homebuilt system April 14, 2011 5:23:50 PM 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? envymert April 14, 2011 5:32:18 PM 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.
