Solved Need input on parts for first build Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: July 15, 2011 4:46 PM in Systems Share mwelch02 July 15, 2011 2:38:52 PM I'm looking to build my first gaming pc in the next week or so and i just wanted to run some of the parts i've found by you guys to see if they are compatible with each other. Case: Raidmax Helios ATX-819 WB PCU: I5 2500k PSU: Raidmax Hybrid 2 RX-630 SS 630W MOBO: ASUS P8P67 RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4gb 2x2 HD: Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM LITE-ON 24X DVD I'm clueless when it comes to motherboards and i've heard that raidmax isn't a very reliable psu but the items above all come in a DIY deal from newegg for $560. As for a GPU i was thinking about either a 6870 1GB or a 560 ti, which would you guys suggest. (no crossfire or sli) Also si there a difference between sapphire, xfx, etc.... Add the GPU and OS and i come in around $800 which is my budget. So just look over the parts and tell me if they're compatible or if something is seriously flawed.
