Is this build compatible?

More about build compatible
  1. what is your budget? i can probably build better
  2. About 550-ish
  3. id get a 6870 from XFX at newegg.com its 154.99 after MIR

    id get a xfx 550w PSU instead. has more quality

    id get gskill ripjaws x instead. they are usually cheaper and lower profile
  4. What is the difference between G-Skill Ripjaws and Vengeance?
  5. gskil is another brand. you basically pay for the same thing but its cheaper
  6. Ah, okay but would the current PSU work for this build or do i need more power?
  7. nah go with mine. its more reliable and built by seasonic which makes the best power supplies in the industry
  8. I cannot afford it though i am afraid :/
    Would it still work?
  9. how about a seasonic M12II 520w. just as good as xfx model

    it would work but i wouldnt trust it that much
  10. What do you mean you would not trust it?
  11. Don't get that power supply. Coolermaster does not make the best power supplies.
    I have the Corsair 430w V2 and it's alright.

    The Coolermaster psu isnt 80+ certified
  12. Thank you soo much, almost bought it v.v
  13. was about to get on that but guerrero beat me -___-
