Hi, I'm new to building computers but have researched things and think the build I have is decent but want someone else opinio. Things I'm most unsure about is the motherboard and videocard being decent
The Extreme Power Plus PSUs tend to be overrated by a significant amount. The difference is internal. It's a difference in the quality of the parts. Some cheap PSUs use Chinese capacitors which rupture after a period of use.
I really recommend you wait for Ivy Bridge, it's only a couple of days before it comes out
So there will be a 3rd Gen i5 out soon? Do you know if it will be about same price?
