Ok guys I am getting ready to build my computer. here is a list of all my componets. All I have to buy that is left is the power supply. Any suggestioons on a good psu for this build. Here are the specs.


Asus Sabertooth 990FX Motherboard
Amd FX 8150 8 CORE CPU
Xfx 7850 core edition graphics card
Kingston HyperX 120 SSD
Western Digital 1T Black Caviar Hard Drive
Asus Xnor Essence STX Sound Card
Corsair Dominator GT 1866 memory 16GB
Xigamtek Dark Knight Black Hawk edition cpu cooler
Corsair 600T White Case
2 ASUS VH238 23 IN Monitors
Corsair SP2500 2.1 Speakers


Now I just received all my listed specs but I am a little confused about the power supply i want a good quality name brand 750 watt psu. I am going to let you guys pick out this power supply for me since I cant choose from so many nice ones. My price range is from $130 to $200 max. Oh I may be adding a second 7850 for crossfire this week when I buy the PSU so keep that in considerartion as for as wattage goes.

Thanks Will

i would like to know what parts you do not need and your budget range. if you like AMD more than intel, your build can use a little tweaking. at this price range, intel destroys fx.

theres not much point in getting such a audiophile class sound card. a asus dx 7.1 sound card is more than enough for 90% of users

Well I already purchased everything listed above. And I know not everyone like the Amd Fx series but I am going to give it a shot since I have always used Amd.

as far as the sound card goes I have purchased. I bought that particular one because I will be using my home surround sound onkyo receiver through it.

i didnt see the point of getting 1866mhz memory when regular 1600mhz is 2-4% lower performing and costs much less than dominator. so was the SSD.

im also not too sure if the memory fits under the cooler. you will have to check for that

a nice power supply would be a xfx xxx 750w. i am using it myself and it is very good.

That xfx xxx 750 is pretty nice looking and the price seems reasonable. Its an 80 plus silver also which is always good too.
