  1. Yes it will run; Al-though if you're just starting to build, i would go with Intel! But if you already have the parts then go ahead....
    The reason i say Intel is because they have more cache for the money and smaller capacitors.
  2. no bottleneck it would be fine but make sure you have a quality psu.

    i have cooler master gx 550 power supply is dat okay
  4. with no oc'ing, than this is fine but if you want to overclock must go for 600watts,
  5. You should be okay at 550w ...



    A C3 PhII 965 with a little cranking should not severely impact your gaming or power, and will not hold back the HD6950.

    If you want to shoot for 'crazy clocks' on both the CPU and GPU an 80-plus 650w would be a good plan
  6. that's what i told
