Hello, So, the power supply is 550W it's a antec Modular Power Supply...I need this to be answered, well my Power supply be enough for a upgrade GTX 670 or even maybe a GTX 680? Last question, I'm planning on building the computer on my coffee table. The coffee table has partial wood and Metal...it has metal legs and a kind of metal basket on the bottom but has wood all around the corners and in the middle is more metal! Would this be conductive? I don't know where I'll be able to build my computer ;*(

~~~ If this helps... I live in Minnesota, could I just build it on the ground, there's actually a carpet there.
~~~ I'll be using a ESD wrist brand By the way. Will I still need a wooden table if I use the wrist band? Thank you

Why do you always start multiple thread about the same topic? It's best to keep using the same thread.

Anyway, to answer your question:

Wood is not conductive. Metal is. Carpet tends to build static electricity very easily.

I would not build on the carpet , just to be safe.

You could probably build on your table even if the pieces touch the metal as long as there is no power going to it.

The best solution to me would be to put down some cardboard or something similar on your table and build on that. That way you aren't taking any chances at all.

Yep! Even a quality 500W PSU would.

Thanks, I'm actually upgrading to a 620W SeaSonic Modular Power Supply, I have another question if anyone can ask it. Would it be worth the few extra bucks for a Lian LI PC-K58 It looks really cool and has more features -- I'd be upgrading from a Cooler Master Haf 912.

I want something big, I really want the Cooler Master Haf 912 actually -- Are the dimensions Big? 19.50" x 9.10" x 18.90"

Cases are all personal preference.

Some cases are made like garbage and have poor cable management, but as long as it's a quality case, it's all about what you like. Cases add nothing to performance.

The HAF 912 is a mid-tower case, so it's not HUGE, but big enough for everything, even multiple GPUs.
Normal PC users will never need a full-tower case.

Yeah I guess the CM Haf 12 will have to do until I upgrade the case later down the road, maybe a Corsair case :D
