SG06, i5 2400, GTX 560 — will it blend?

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.

$1000, more or less. Russian prices are a bit higher than US + tax.

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!

  1. You can't put a dual slot video card on that mobo judging from the layout. I suggest going mATX. The PSU is too weak.

    Do you have this available in there?

    For that resolution you need a more powerful 2G VRAM video card (AMD).
  2. Nah, this case is too big for me. As for the motherboard, dual-slot cards certainly fit.
  3. Even if it fits the fan airflow will be blocked. No long video cards. Only 264W on the 12V rail. No gaming on that case, good only for HTPC.
  4. 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...
  5. I’ve built it, Furmarked and OCCT’d the crap out of it. It works.
