My questions are;
Will an 800 Watt PSU be enough to power the rig (I will be installing the components into my NZXT Tempest with 6 Fans and 2 LEDs)?
Do any of these components clash?
Should I replace any of the components listed above (though I would prefer if they were from the same manufacturer (ASUS Motherboard, Intel CPU, EVGA GPU,...))?
I will be buying the parts in increments of 1-2 components a month, so recommended replacements shouldn't vary by more than 20-40€.
Noise levels don't bother me at all, my most important criteria are compatibility, quality and low temperature.
*Note that the prices may drop/rise before I actually buy them and even though some of the prices may not be the lowest in my country, I trust the store as I've done a lot of business with them before.
I would go with the spinpoint f3 HDD because they are 1tb a piece and cost around $60. Really no need for more than that. Never understood why people get 4tb worth of disk space...but whatever your system your choice.
here is a review on those cards in SLI...i link straight to the page where it talks about power consumption.
The ones that I see mostly recommended are the Corsair H60, H70, Cooler Master Hyper 212+, Noctua NH-D14, and some of the xigmatek ones.
I have been recommending the h60 here lately because it comes with the thermal paste pre applied so novice builders do not have to worry about applying the right amount. Mine worked out just fine after switching from the hyper 212+....much easier to install as well...especially for intel builds....amd can be just a little bit more complicated but still easier.
Well then, since I've received no warnings of incompatibility or poor choices, I'll be buying the components next month, starting with the motherboard and continuing with the CPU and RAM, which will allow me to assemble the new computer in 3 months if not sooner.
What do you think, are they worth it or do you have anything better/cheaper to recommend (though both must be corded, keyboard must be mechanical, have a tall Enter key and have room around the directional keys, and the mouse must be laser with configurable DPI and have several extra buttons)?
Not to much one sec...ill find it and edit this post...the switch however was on the bottom of the mouse if that matters...???
Here...nothing real fancy but it worked very good for me. No side buttons....my hands seem to tense when playing FPS games so having no buttons on the side kept me from doing something that I didn't want to do while playing.....like knifing instead of shooting
