HANNspree By Hanns-G HF225DPB Black 21.5" Full HD WideScreen LCD Monitor w/Speakers
LOGISYS Computer PS550ABK 550Watts Power Supply With SATA and 20/24 Pin connectors.
HITACHI 500GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
I see a recipe for disaster here. The power supply is extremely unreliable, and chances are, it isn't even a real 550W PSU. If you really have to, save your money to get a better power supply since the PSU is the "heart" of your computer and if it fails (which it just might with the LOGISYS PSU) then it could potentially damage your computer such as HDD, motherboard, RAM, and CPU. I would go with a minimum of the power supply to be safe: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I should also elaborate more on why I said " chances are, it isn't even a real 550W PSU" in case you didn't know:
Power supply companies can brand their power supplies almost anything. The wattage (550W in this case) is what the company brands as the maximum output of the power supply. This output is in extreme circumstances which is almost never reached in a home scenario. Most of the unreliable PSUs are just rebranded 250-300-350W models. If you want to know which PSUs are reliable from their wattage output, look for 80+ certification. 80+ means that a power supply has been deemed able to output 80% of the said wattage at 20% and 100% load. If you want reliable power supply brands, then Seasonic and FSP are the best to go with. Corsair and Antec are generally good, however, some of their products are not
my last question is, with my CPU, ram and motherboard will the GPU preform at its maximum potential? will there be anything holding back any component of my computer? thanks roaring dragon im gonna end up going with your build, being it has better hardware at almost the same price
EDIT: will i be needing any type of cooling for this build? i do not plan on OC'ing this device
I'm not sure about the CPU, I don't believe there will be any bottlenecks in the system, however, I can't say for sure. I would personally go with an i3 2100 and an ASRock Extreme 3 z68 for upgrade paths in the future, however, the AMD build is good too. Also, don't forget to select the best answer.
