SG06, i5 2400, GTX 560 — will it blend? Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: July 28, 2011 11:06 PM in Systems Share beatrepeat June 22, 2011 12:11:32 PM Hey guys! My MacBook runs TF2 like *** so I’ve decided to build a small gaming rig. I’ve been out of the whole hardware business for five years, so please excuse my lameness. What do I want Games for me, RAW photo processing for my wife in a smallest form factor possible. Budget $1000, more or less. Russian prices are a bit higher than US + tax. Parts I’ve decided on the following: Silverstone Sugo SG06B 300 W case Gigabyte GA-H67N-USB3-B3 motherboard Intel Core i5 2400 CPU cooled by Scythe Shuriken Rev.B Gainward 1024 MB GF GTX 560 GS GPU 2×4 GB Kingston DDR3 RAM (it’s cheap, why not?) Seagate Momentus XT 2.5" HDD (or Seagate Momentus 7200.4 from my MacBook) No optical drive, 3.5" cage removed Windows 7 64-bit I’ve read all the threads, I’ve seen German guys selling more powerful rigs with this PSU, but I’m still worried. I’ve got questions before I fork out the cash: — Will the 300 W PSU be enough for my build? I can’t find 450 W versions of SG05/06 in Russia. — Will the GTX 560 fit in my case? I don’t want to dremel stuff. — Will it run TF2 in 2560×1440? Thanks in advance!

Do you have this available in there? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... For that resolution you need a more powerful 2G VRAM video card (AMD). beatrepeat June 22, 2011 1:00:29 PM Nah, this case is too big for me. As for the motherboard, dual-slot cards certainly fit.

No gaming on that case, good only for HTPC. kypd July 23, 2011 7:35:47 AM Hi, I build a Gaming PC with the GA-H67N-USB3-B3 in a Sugo SG05. 300W PSU is enough for my i5 2500k + 2x4 Gb 1333 DDR3, and a Radeon HD6850 (Saphire) Without optical drive, just an old Samsung 500Gb 7200rpm 3.5" I used OCCT Power Supply Test to load the CPU and GPU, the PSU shows no failure, but intel stock cooler is not enough in this small case (Temp above 73°C) No trouble while gaming with the HD6850 but it's a low power card when compared to same class nvidia cards ! The Sugo SG05/06 can take long dual-slot cards if needed (HD6870 definitly fit, GTX460 too) up to 9" (23cm) If you go for a 560 ti (23cm) take one with the PCI-e power connector located on the side of the card instead of the rear... beatrepeat July 28, 2011 11:06:20 PM I’ve built it, Furmarked and OCCT’d the crap out of it. It works. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources I3 2100 + GTX 460/560 (not ti) vs i5 2400 + GTX 550ti Forum Did I Made A Mistake by installing 32 bit Win7 to i5 2400 + GTX 560?
