Final check - is this system OK?

I'm aiming for a budget gaming computer - I'll upgrade it later if I need to. I'd just like to know if the power supply is good enough, everything will fit in the case, and if everything is compatible. Thank you very much, in advance!

  1. It'll probably work, but there's a few suggestions I'd make.

    Get a better mobo. The one you have is discontinued - do you already have it? If not get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157315&name=Intel-Motherboards

    A 28nm GPU eg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150617 Yes, it's more expensive - but it's a lot more powerful and uses less power. The 450W PSU is too small for the 560

    I purchased the motherboard already, before it was discontinued. I only have the hard drive and the motherboard at this point.
    Are you sure my PSU won't hold up? The GPU you mentioned had low reviews - that worries me. If I need to, I can cough up a bit more for a better PSU. How much output do I need?
  3. Ya I'd definitely spend the extra $10 and get the 7850 over a 560.

    Yes, but I still need a PSU with higher output.
  5. Don't trust newegg reviews, they're pretty uninformed. The one person who gave it a 1egg got a DOA. But yes, a 2GB version would be better. PSU wise, I wouldn't run a 560 on anything less than 550W eg http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=PS-BP550UP&c=CJ Even that would be tight.

    Ok, I'll look on Newegg for 550W+ PSUs for a bit.

  7. Looks good. You can always get better, but you have a budget. If a part fails, RMA it, no biggy.
  8. NO!!! There are a lot of crap PSUs out there. Don't buy any that aren't 80PLUS certified as that means they can at least put out their rated power. Antec, Corsair, Enermax, OCZ, PCP&C, some Rosewill, Seasonic, and XFX are the best brands.

    I'm going a bit over-budget, but ok, I'll make it work. :P How about this one? Corsair

    Consider this one for your psu. I have a 750w earthwatts for one of my builds, and it works just great. This one is 650w, but it is all you need for what you're building.
