First of all I am new to building computers and this will be my first attempt at building my personal gaming computer so i appreciate any criticism and suggestions anyone has and if someone could answer my questions
Corsair CMPSU-800G Gaming Series GS800 800W - Power Supply $139.99 Will this be enough to power this rig?
Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 Vengeance 16GB PC12800 1600MHzDDR3-RAM $119.97 is it worth it to get 8GB Dominator instead?
Cooler Master RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Advanced ATX - Mid-Tower Case $95.99 thinking about changing this to a full tower
EVGA 015-P3-1582-AR GeForce GTX 580 1536MB GDDR5 SuperClocked Video Card $479.97 Should I spend the extra $120 to get the 3GB DDR5?
ASUS P8P67 LE B3 Intel P67 - Motherboard $139.97 unsure of this motherboard many mixed reviews, suggestions?
PSU: Good, but it'll depend on budget. There are better options.
RAM: Overpriced, and you sure as hell don't need 16GB for gaming.
Case: Excellent, one of my favorite cases.
GPU: Not the best bang for buck, but it depends on your screen res.
Mobo: Definite better options. Depends on budget.
CPU: KEEP IT! Excellent choice.
DVD Writer: Overpriced. Sony Optiarc would be a better option.
HDD: Overpriced. Samsung Spinpoint F3 wins here.
Get back to me with the form and I'll add much more detail. As you can see, there's a few changes to make for the best performance/deals.
Well it depends. The 750w would be PLENTY to run a single GTX 580, but in my mind i'd like to have the option to upgrade, where basically you need a kilowatt PSU. Yes they can run on 850w PSU's, but it's not nearly as efficient or good for the PSU.
