Xfx 7970 build FIRST TIME
Apr 10, 2012, 7:50 PM
Here is my Newegg.com
plus i2550k, since it was bundled with a warranty, cant be added to the wishlist
I got an over the top psu with hopes of one day getting another xfx 7970 in crossfire
this is my first build, are there any glaring problems with what I chose?
im skipping the HDD for now, I think I can get by on a 128 for now
600T case had good reviews and seems legit
I have no real budget for this build, just want to play bf3 and other games and getting sick of ps3/xboxs BS

You will see no performance gain with the i5-2550k. Once OCed, both the 2550k and the 2500k will be the same in performance.

What is your PSU brand, model number, and wattage?

CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91

The 750W might be under the recommended for 2x 7970. Maybe consider the HX850.
