These are the specs for the Maingear Shift Computer I'm planning on getting. The final cost is just over 2500 dollars. So a question for all you high end computer junkies that either build computers or buy them prebuilt. Is this a decent deal considering my components and extras, etc? I think all the composents are listed here but let me know if you can't find one.
1200W is overkill. WAY overkill. a single 570 should need a 600-650W PSU. 750-800W in SLI. a 1200W PSU will be highly inefficient for this build. wasting a ton of electricity.
At this price, you should have a 60 - 120 GB SSD as a boot drive.
Okay thanks. I might take your advice on the RAM. However, the reason I upgraded that was because it looked like a good deal. On the power supply; I put it as high as possible on purpose because I will for sure upgrade this computer at some point and I wanted the ability to get what I wanted. I'm try to make it a little future proof (silly, I know).
