  1. Older underpowered graphics card
    extremely limited storage space
    the CPU cooler is a little out of place with this cpu and motherbpard
    850 watt PSU is excessive. 600 watts should be plenty after adding a proper mid-high end card
  2. i agree, i wasnt quite able to find the right budget graphic card for this system :(

    can you tell me more abt the problem with the CPU cooler :o

    i,ll be addin another 2TB internal hard drive , ssd is jst for os and essential software

    power supply coolermaster or crosair.

    thnx again :wahoo:
  3. i,d really appreciate it if u guys could help me out with the graphics card and cpu cooler for this board
  4. Well, you want Nvidia and although a pro card would be much faster and more reliable, you could get away with a gaming version. Stick with the 5 series though as many apps are not optimized for Kepler yet. If you can, pick up a 570 with a 560ti being the lowest I would go. More memory on the graphics card, the better.
  5. thanx guys :bounce:
