Yes well I really like the UD5H Davis's if has more SATA ports and is more future proof (; I also got it for $139.99 and I got the i5-3570k for $189.99 also is the power supply reall that bad because I read se great reviews and I've also used about 5 different PSU calculators and they say I need 508w to run my set up... Im trying to save the most I can...

And the ud3 is a better gigabyte board. The 6870 looks off. Get this http://newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681450...


For $1K you can do way better than that 560TI. I actually suggested a system like this in an earlier thread:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($134.99 @ Microcenter)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($43.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card ($379.98 @ NCIX US)
Case: Corsair 300R ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $1033.91

Change the psu to a corsair equivalent like Gamer Series for peace of mind but it'll work.
Still think you should change the card unless you already have it too.

The GS series will give you no peace of mind as that is a low quality Corsair PSU series. The ModXStream is a better PSU than the GS series anyway.

Nope I don't have the card. Here basically I'm getting the HDD do $97.99 so I don't really want to change that out and I was looking and the 650D it's $149.99 but that's all that I really don't want to change. I like the PSU is there something wrong with the brand? I've heard good stuff from OCZ

OCZ have a tendency to mislead on efficiency. That model says 80+, probably on idle. Not to mention that quality control is poor. Have had to send back a psu 3 TIMES to get a working one. They also have a poor rebate system.

It's a budget line sure but they work well. More Watt couldn't hurt.

Read the Load Tests page.
At 480W (80% load), 83.5% was the lowest efficiency rating it got, which is very good for a unit with just 80+ Certification.

I guess it's more solid then. Had a bad experience with a corexstream.

The conclusion page also says the unit's cabling is limited in length and number. Not to mention that the voltage regulation is a bit loose. I guess that's not bad if those don't bother you.
