Tags: New Build Systems Last response: December 19, 2012 6:51 AM in Systems Share olano December 16, 2012 5:06:26 PM Is it a good build for using Mathematica? CPU: AMD FX-8350 Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Memory: KINGSTON DDR3 PC1866 (2x4GB) Storage: SEAGATE HDD 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA3 6GBPS Video Card: ASUS HD7770-1GD5 Case: TACENS NOA VENT. 14CM AURA PRO Power Supply: CORSAIR GAMING SERIES GS700W 80 PLUS BRONZE ATX Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224B Also I chose the Video Card because from time to time I will use the PC to play. I just want to know if it will work good or if there will be any compatibility problem or if I might need a power supply with more watts or I have to much watts. Thank you all in advance More about : built work good mathematica COLGeek December 16, 2012 5:25:26 PM This config will be fine for most games and definitely for Mathematica. iam2thecrowe December 16, 2012 5:37:30 PM you can just get a calculator for mathematics. The 700w power supply is more than you need for that build, a 500w unit would be ample. Unless you plan on overclocking the 8 core cpu, in which case you will want 700w. I would probably spend a bit extra on the video card and get a hd7850.

COLGeek December 18, 2012 1:19:10 AM I recommend Seasonic and Corsair PSUs, depending on your budget. For this config, you should get 500w as a minimum. You want some room for growth, so that is why I am good with your original 700w. Keep this is mind, if your system only draws 300w (for example), it will do so whether using a 500w or 700w PSU. A PSU only draws what is needed. olano December 19, 2012 6:51:08 AM Thank you very much guys. You helped me so much. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
