Second if this is a gaming build drop the i7-2600k to an i5-2500k and invest the difference in getting a better GPU like the 6970. Then the PSU is OK - a better choice would be the Corsair TX750 V2. Outlander_04 a c 136 B Homebuilt system February 7, 2012 3:23:25 AM The power supply is more than enough . It would be fine with 500watt If you are gaming , and especially if you have a 1080p high resolution screen, then buy a 2500k and a more powerful graphics card with the money you save Related resources Community opinion on pre built gaming PC - Forum Selling My Ubber Computer (in my opinion ) built for overclocking - Forum Opinions on my First Built - Forum Opinions to components for my first self- built PC - Forum My first self- built PC: Opinions to specs - Forum Can't find your answer ?
