  1. Yea I have not heard of Coolmax so I would not trust them. Go for Antec, Asus and Corsair power supplies
    As for ram you will not see performance improvements with going over 8 gigs so don't upgrade that

    Hi - couldn't find a respected review on that particular Coolmax,
    but they are a lousy brand, have 7 or 8 models on the johnnylucky.org
    "Lemon List" (including a 700w model that exploded during testing)
    and none on the recommended list.

    You need only a quality PSU of 450-500w to run a system with the
    cards you mention. A quality PSU in that range will also have
    sufficient amps on the +12v rail(s)

    Quality brands: Seasonic, XFX, PC Power & Cooling, Antec,
    Rosewill Capstone series, most Corsair's, most OCZ, & a
    few others.
  3. What graphics card would be recommended for my build i personally think spending over 200 on one is way to much to invest? sli is a big option i love gaming so i plan on getting one as soon as piggy bank allows i just cant decide between nvidia or ati i like playing all types of games far crys to starcraft 2. ive herd some graphic cards work better with other game and so on so which should i go for i dont play a majority of either brand i just play games that are good.

    and on the other side of this what kind of power supply would i need?
  4. PS thank you guys for the quick responses earlier and thanks alvine for letting me know now not to upgrade my ram any further now i can spend a lil more on graphics card

    for < $200, the 7850 is your best bet. They're running approx $185 - $200.

    Here's a couple to consider: all 2gb versions
