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

This config will be fine for most games and definitely for Mathematica.

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.

Thank you very much guys. I really appreciate your help.

One last thing; which power supply brand would you recommend me? Because yeah, maybe the one I chose is more than I need.

Corsair, Antec, XFX, SeaSonic.

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.
