I am building a new computer for my brother. I was hoping to share the specs and see if there can be any improvement that can be made. The budget is strictly under $500. This machine will be used for Homework, games but not so much and video chat and what not. [The product are hyper linked]
i'm going to have to wait on the 6770 cause the rebate expiration date is 6/30 which is today and i'm not buying the parts yet, so i'm going to have to wait if there are any promos going around and see if i can fit the 6770 in.
Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 W is, according to our methodology, a flawed product that must be avoided at all costs. It can’t deliver its labeled wattage at high temperatures, but this is not the worst of it: ripple and noise level are way above the maximum allowed when you pull 80% or more from the unit’s labeled capacity (i.e., 600 W and above), overloading your components (especially electrolytic capacitors from the motherboard and video cards), which can cause your PC to present an erratic behavior (crashes and random resets) and, under extreme conditions, damage components.
