  1. I didn't know you could spend $140 on a 1tb HDD.

    If you want to keep the price the same, buy a different HDD and put more money into a better PSU.

    For example:

    Mind you, when I say 'better', I mean more watts. Your budget seems to be pretty big, and the weakest part is probably your PSU.
  2. Well, its helpful if you have a descriptor for the link so we don't have to follow 20 links to see what you're after.

    I think you'll like the monitor, I love mine. It isn't much over my old 22inch in height, but it seems mostly bigger in width. But it is certainly brighter than the Acer, and more clarity as well.
    Looks like a nice build for a serious gamer. For me personally I wouldn't spend quite so much on the peripherals.
    The SSD is a winner.

    Why would the OP need 1000Watts? 850 is more than enough for his build....
  4. thats kind of what i thought too i just wasnt 100% sure...would it still be enough if i planned on dropping another GPU later on? also one of the reasons i went with that psu was it combo'd with the memory.
  5. Yes, I'm pretty certain 850W is enough for sli GTX 580, but if you want to be certain, here's a PSU calculator that will let you know what you need:

  6. BTW, better does not mean more watts, it is means a higher quality power supply. For the latest in power supplies, I recommend you check out johnny Guru:
