I`m new around here, and i would like some advice, or your opinions, if possible. I`m building a new system with the help of a friend. I`m putting together this components: Case will be provided from a friend, wich told me it`s a really great one, with three or four coolers already. Sorry, but don`t really know wich one. CPU- Intel Core i5-2500K Motherboard -ASRock Z68 Pro3 Gen3 RAM- 8Gb (2 x 4Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600Mhz) HDD- WD Caviar blue 250Gb Sata 7.200 Rpm 6Gb/s for OS (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit) WD Caviar Green 500Gb Sata 7.200 Rpm for other stuff, like photos, music, etc... Maybe later update to a SSD PSU- XFX Core Edition Pro 850W. ATX 2.3 80 Plus Bronze Graphic card- I already have a Asus 470 GTX 1280 DDR5 , maybe SLi later, if i can find a second card like this one. CPU Cooler- Not sure wich one, but around 30 Euros (Advice ?? please!!) Already have DVD burner and reader (Pioneer, and Asus) and the monitor also have. I will be making a lot of photoshop editing, and some gaming. Will this be alright? And about the PSU, will it be enought, even later with two graphic cards, and with a SSD Thank you all that wich to share your opinions. All advices are welcome.
