  1. You do not need a 260$ mobo.. :)

    Also, you chose a 490$ GPU. Get a GTX 680 instead.

    Are you going to SLI? If not. Get this PSU.

    Everything else looks good.
  2. I'm thinking about SLI-ing the future, probably when the standards for games start shooting up again. Is the GTX 590 > GTX 680? I looked at the benchmarks done on TH and they look about even.
  3. No. 590 get hot, uses LOTS of power, and 680 SLI will destroy it. Get a 680, and SLI it down the road.
  4. yeah i would advise getting a different psu try corsair antec or seasonic
  5. ^^^What's wrong with the one I have? What wattage would I need for SLI-ing the 680 down the road?
  6. it's not the wattage its the reliability of the power supply that is the problem if your psu goes it could and very likely fry your whole build leaving you in a deep hole
  7. The one I linked will be plenty. Corsair and Seasonic are just more reliable PSU's.
  8. yes very true
  9. PCPC is a great PSU company, on the lines of seasonic, corsair, antec, and xfx.... and go with the 680...

    Gary is right about the mobo as well
  10. is 650W really enough if I plan on using SLI for the GTX 680?
  11. no, 650W is not enough for SLI 680's. Go with 850W or more
