First Time Build - Is it OK? Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: November 10, 2012 5:52 PM in Systems Share tomprior6 November 10, 2012 3:09:52 PM Hi, This is my first gaming build and would just like to make sure its all compatible. Many Thanks CPU: AMD FX 8350 CPU Cooler: Corsair h80i Motherboard: Asus sabertooth 990fx RAM: Corsair 16gb 1600mhz HDD: Wesstern digital caviar black + Seagate Barracuda 500gb PSU: Coolermaster 650w gx GPU: XFX radeon 7870 Case: Coolermaster HAF XM More about : time build Poltregeist November 10, 2012 4:41:18 PM Pretty good. Why do you have 2 HDDs? Why not drop that Barracuda and get a nice SSD? +1 on that 8350, but what is your price range? I could help you refine that if I knew more info.

Stick with reliable brands such as Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair.

I will be needing the two HDD's and the price range was around £1000 I was looking at an XFX power supply anyway so i think i will go with that one(Core edition bronze 650w) Poltregeist November 10, 2012 5:36:42 PM tomprior6 said:Thanks for the feedback.
