Hi I'm new to building computers and I'm about to receive some parts from my friend to build a new computer.
Here's the parts:
GPU- HD 5850
CPU- AMD 965
Intel 80gb SSD
G.Skill 4GB Ram
I'm thinking about buying these parts:
Case- CM 690ii advanced
PSU- need help with this, is a 650w psu gonna be ok?
Motherboard- Biostar 990fx ($110)
What else would I need to complete this build? (besides monitor,mouse,keyboard)
I would get a bigger SSD. An 80 gig SSD really is nothing and will get filled up so fast. If your doing just a boot drive i would do at least a 128 gig SSD. If your going to be using the SSD for more than just a boot drive I would go even bigger or use a standard HDD with an SSD boot drive. The SSD will hold all vital OS information and the standard HDD will hold all other info.
As for the PSU the 650 watt should be fine as long as you get a good quality PSU. I would look at Seasonic or Corsair and get a PSU that is at least 80+ bronze certified, although if you can I would go with 80+ gold certified. If your using this computer for gaming look at mechanical gaming keyboards and a gaming mouse.
