My new PC build help?

I am going to SLI my Nvidia 550 Ti with the EVGA that I'm also getting. I also going to use the OS I have on the hard drive I have now which is windows 7. Thanks guys

  1. And please don't be an intel fanboy... I can't afford an intel processor, so I'm not getting one.
  2. Its a verry good build.Good luck.
  3. Personally I'd get a cheaper case and stretch to a sandy bridge cpu. $150 should get you a decent 1155 sli mobo and if you get a $60 case its an extra $45 towards a better cpu.

    You'll have far better upgrade options and better gaming performance.

    About the harddrive with the OS, it would be best to do a complete re-installation of the OS. As there will be a lot of rubbish left over from the last installation (drivers, registry settings, etc).

  5. Oh and change your 16gb RAM kit for an 8gb model to save some money, as you will never need more than 8gb of RAM.
