  1. If you plan on adding another video card later, it would be better to get a higher watt power supply. Your current setup is about 380watts, and adding another video card brings it to 580 watts (according to PcPartpicker).

    I know you're on a budget so you could get those 2x4=8gb memory now, and maybe add another 8 gb later.

    If it were me, I would spend a little more and get a 128 or 256gb SSD, and add a 1TB HDD later. The solid state drives are so much faster than regular hard drives.

  2. oki..thanks a lot!!!
  3. You're welcome! Let me know if you have any more questions. A 128gb solid state drive is a good size to put Windows and some games/programs on if you intend to buy a hard drive later. Personally I decided to go with 256gb ssd and I might not need to buy a regular hard drive for a long time. Unless you download and store lots of videos, those take up lots of hard drive space, but I just watch videos through streaming internet (netflix, amazon prime). Check to see if your SSD comes with a 3.5 to 2.5 inch mounting bracket. If it doesn't you'll need one of those but they are only a few dollars/pounds. It's so you can mount the SSD in your case's 3.5 in hard drive bay.
  4. yeah one more question.....the case is it big enough for the system??and for the future where i'll probably CROSS.....
  5. Yes the case is big enough, I read an amazon review of it where the guy was using 2 graphics cards, so doing Crossfire down the road should not be a problem.

    The 256gb version also has double the write speed of the 128.
  8. if you could answer me one last question....do i need anyhing else because i'm going to build it my self..i mean like wires or anything at all...really need an answer
  9. All the parts will come with the wires/cables you need. You could if you want get some Artic Silver 5 thermal paste, it is supposed to be a little better than the paste that will come with the cpu cooler, but thats totally optional. Make sure you get Windows 7 home premium 64 bit and not the 32 bit.
    That's about all I can think of, should be good!
  10. thanks a lot....
