Please keep in mind this is my very first build, so alot of thinking and second guessing is to be expected. i had a budget of around 800-900$, and i wanted the build to be a well preforming gaming pc. goal in mind - run upcoming games such as mw3 and bf3 on max graphic settings while smooth and with fast speeds.
These are all modular PSU and are solid buys for under $80. they are plenty to power that GPU. if you are considering SLI in the future, I would chose a Corsair, antec, Seasonis or silverstone 750w PSU.
i was also going to get the amd phenom x6 1100t black edition but i heard the intel i5 2500k was better for gaming while the x6 was best suited for editing and the similar.
but on a scale from 1-10, how well did i do for a first build, and for someone whos only a moderate in computer technology?
haha yeah the case is cool. i like the black n green, reminds me of a monster can. (im a fiend for monster lol) i was also going to take a monster can, cut out the logo and name and run it through a sticker making machine and put some custom decals on the case.
Sorry, I meant one the ones I recommended. I'm not a thermaltake PSU fan, Iv'v had 2 die under a load they should have handled easily. I always go with the Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, Silverstone. the XFX Core series is good also, the OEM is Seasonic.
you still did good on the build even with the Thermaltake PSU. I'm not saying that PSU will fail, I just always go with a major PSU player.
