How does my new setup look?

Hey guys!

Well im finally getting around to upgrading my system! :D

Here is what i plan on adding. http://www.tigerdirect.com/cgi-bin/shoppingcart.asp (hope this works if it doesn't tell me!)

I already have a hardrive, cpu-fan, mouse, etc

I also have a 600 watt power supply and was wondering if it would be good enough to handle that setup...also i do overclock.

Anything i should change or could do better?

Thanks!

  1. We can't see what you have in your shopping cart, please list out the items or take a screenshot. It just says "you don't have any items in your shopping cart" and also, what is the company of the 600W PSU and what is the cpu-fan?

    Sorry wasn't sure if that would work......Alright

    The power supply is a ocz stealth stream and this is the fan http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4434989&CatId=493

    Also is that motherboard ok for overclocking?
  3. Watch out, some AM3+ motherboards really doesn't natively support the FX CPUs. Some AM3+ motherboards need another AM3 CPU to update the BIOS to support the new chipset. This will work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131767

    Thanks!

    one more question im considering changing the gpu and mobo for crossfired hd 6850s. should i keep one 6950 or go with 2 6850s. Also what kind of power supply whould i need for crossfire 6850s.
  7. Depends, if you are willing to spend money on this computer in the future, then definitely go with the 6950 so you can CF another 6950 in the future. If you are unwilling to spend money on this build, then go with the CF'ed 6850 because it gives better performance than 1 6950.

    Dont think ill being putting any more money on this build in the future so ill prob go with the 6850s then....will my 600 watt be enough to handle both...if not will a 750 handle them?

    I believe 600W is the recommended PSU power amount for CF, check if your PSU is on the certified PSU list by AMD:
