  1. Just a tip, I think you will get a lot more replies if you just list the names of the parts instead of using the links only. That way people don't have to click through every single link and open ~20 tabs.

    too lazy to click all the links one by one now. :(

    Yeah it is a bit lazy but to be fair, you are asking for help.

    You would need to upgrade to the 500W PSU for the second build because the CX-430 doesn't have enough connectors for the HD 6870.

    Option 2 is the better build but I imagine it's more expensive. Both are good for the money.

    No, no, I understand man. I was just using the joke from the guy who posted above and called himself lazy lol. Obviously I'm new but I'll use names from here on out.

    Sorry about that.

    Back to the system, thanks for the idea. Definitely will do that upgrade. The GPU said 550W minimum, not sure what to do now? Anyone got a good, and affordable, power supply to recommend?

    I've found this so far: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152035 and http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200 - To be put into either system
  6. It's fine, sorry I didn't mean to sound annoyed. Was just trying to help.

    500W would be more than fine for that setup, the Corsair CX-500 is good.

    I would like a 600W one, and the CX version of that is too expensive right now. So I'm looking for alternatives.
  8. The max power draw will be like 300W, they say 550W minimum in case people buy cheap PSU's. A friend of mine has the CX-500 with an i3 and an HD 6950 and that's completely fine.

    If you must get 600W+ though I'd get the CX-600 or the Antec CP-620 or something.
