The PSU is quite a bit overkill, but its a great deal. 130$ (total savings when it shows in my cart) off and i just cant help it. Is it good? Got good reviews

Trying not to make it cost any more than what i have, which is $1043 :D

Swap out the green drive for a WD Caviar Black drive.

Also, take a look at Corsair HX850 (or HX750) Modular PSU.

Swap out that crappy CM PSU with this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$120 Lepa B850-MA 850W ATX12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular (rebadged enermax unit, $40 MIR)

or:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$120 XFX Core Edition PRO850W (not modular tho)

CM PSU's are a grab bag of caps, while occasionally you'll get something decent, usually it's a POS.


Seems to me that the CM one seems to work great though? So does mine that i currently have. Plus, this one is 800w, Gold certified, and modular. ? And ive never heard of Leda, and doesnt seem to get good reviews. Neither does the XFX one. Might get a corsair one, but want to keep price down as much as possible.

Start with one more powerful video card, then when it shows its age, drop another one in there. I don't ever think it's a good idea to start a new build with cf/sli limiting your upgrade path.

Agree with @Ubralis

Exchange these Green Caviar for Black Caviar, or any other 1TB+ 7200rpm HD

Sorry about that. Should have put it in the already have thingy, I already own two Radeon 6850's.

And ill replace hard drive. Does anyone seem to have issues with the CM PSU? Other than that one guy?
