I want a computer i wont have to put much effort into once its built, that's why i decided to go with a larger SSD, even on this current 1tb slow harddrive I'm only using like 260 gigs overall, and I'm trying to make it easy to build, because its my first build and I'm overly anxiec about it.

Questions: Will i need any extra cords to put the current build together, and is a 1 yr warranty on the sdd worth $24?

  1. Best answer
    That's a fine build.

    I wouldn't get that RAM if you ever plan to OC. It will most likely interfere with an aftermarket cooler because of the large heatsinks.

    Your PSU is way overkill for what you have there. Are you reusing a GPU?

    You shouldn't need any extra cables or anything. That mobo comes with two SATA cables.

    As for the SSD, Crucial is one of the best. I wouldn't get any extra warranties, they are only offered so the company can make more money.
  2. I threw in this ram instead:
    G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

    Yeah im reusing my EVGA Superclocked 550ti, ill upgrade that in the future when i need to.

    Finally got my paypal funds in, but now newegg is telling me
    "The seller of this item requires you to provide a Confirmed Address for delivery. To confirm your address, please add a credit card below."

    While Paypal is telling me:
    "This transaction amount is greater than your available PayPal balance. To complete purchase, please add a credit or debit card."

    I just bought a item from a different website with success, and i have enough money for my full order which now comes out at $887, does newegg require alot of time to update its paypal or somthing? -freaking out more than i should be about this
  3. That Ram is better.

    I don't know much about Newegg and Paypal, sorry.
