Plus this is SATA III & faster. I don't think you need that case, but if you want it you can get it. I think the HAF 922 or Storm Scout would make a better case and save you money. But your decision. | Report abuse r0aringdrag0n July 8, 2011 4:31:59 AM ^ agree, especially the case...I wouldn't spend anything more than $100 on a case because I want better components in my computer and maybe add a hard drive for other things? | Report abuse Why_Me July 8, 2011 7:05:18 AM aznshinobi said:Drop that PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page22979.h... <----- that psu is manufactured by Sirtec | Report abuse Related ressources Final check before ordering - Forum Final Build Check Before Ordering Friday - Forum Final Check before ordering - Forum Final check before ordering - Forum New Computer Build - Final Check Before Ordering (Critique) - Forum Ask the community Publish aznshinobi July 8, 2011 3:09:52 PM Dunno if that's bad but according to HardOCP it's a decent PSU | Report abuse grody July 8, 2011 3:55:27 PM You can get away with a 750W with Xfired 6950s. Here's the non-modular version of your original PSU choice, if you wanna save $35. | Report abuse aznshinobi July 9, 2011 12:04:48 AM ^ But the PSU you suggested cost the same as the 850w I suggested, though they have the same efficiency. Yours has 100w less. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Final Check Before Ordering> Related ressources: ForumFinal check of system before ordering ForumFinal Check before Ordering ... nervous...
