  3. The reviews for the Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 650W say that it is missing a second PCI-E connector unless you call the manufacturer. I agree with the others, get a different PSU.
  4. Get at least 80+bronze and go with corsair, seasonic, maybe xfx
  5. Rosewill HIVE is just as good. Get the HIVE 550W.
  6. yeah downgrade the hive to a 550w. then you're stuck on the same boat im at, except im using a 7850 rather than a 560 ti
  7. Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core $169.99
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing $29.90
    ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 $147.86
    G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $46.99
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM $72.99
    EVGA GeForce GTX 570 1.25GB $279.99
    Antec One Hundred ATX Mid Tower $50.99
    Antec 550W ATX12V $54.99

    All prices are off of NCIX and Newegg and it comes down to 853 dollars I think
