I am new to the forums but I need help too see if this list off components for this new high end gaming pc I am building will work and if 900w is necessary or enough for it.

Here is the list with links. (if something is out of stock I might change it)


LUPO Anti-Static Wrist Strap Grounding Wrist Strap/Band - Prevents Build up of Static Electricity

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit (Full) System Builder DVD 1 Pack

INTEL Intel Solid-State Drive 330 Series - Solid state drive - 240 GB - internal - 2.5" - SATA-600

LG Slim Blu-Ray Combo Drive - SATA CT40N

Asus AMD Ultimate Bundle (Includes Crosshair V Formula, AMD FX-8150 & 16GB Black Mamba DDR3 Memory)

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti OC 3GB GDDR5 DVI-I/DVI-D/HDMI/Displayport PCI-Express 3.0 SLI Ready Graphics Card GV-N66TOC-3GD

900W PSU 120mm Fan

Asus PCE-N15 11n 300Mbps PCI-E Wireless Network Card

Obsidian Series® 800D Full-Tower Case
Acer HS244HQ 24" Widescreen 2ms 3D LED Monitor

Any help would be great.

Thanks! :bounce:

With these changes it will be a much better build and it costs less
Way better cpu for gaming and better ssd. You don't need a 900w psu and that one didn't look to good. The xfx pro750 is a good psu and more than enough even if you add a second gtx 660 ti later. You also don't need a full tower for this build and the corsair 600t is an excellent case. You can add 8gb more ram if you plan to record your game play if not the 8gb will be enough.

I think I might record my game play but I think I will stick with Asus AMD Ultimate Bundle but change my case and psu. Thanks for the help. :)

Yes, realize the 600t is monster anyways even though it says it is a mid-tower, I don't wanna know what a 800D full-tower looks like (I have the 600, I loved getting to do my first build in it, but the thing is massive).

Hopefully better airflow then the 600T because the airflow in a 600T is god awful. I also agree with strife I would lower the watts from 900 to something a little lower I and more efficient maybe something like a CORSAIR HX750 if you can find that one.

Take a look at this one. I think this one would be a better option for you.

Although the one you have listed is cool has kind of a car motor feel to it has nice features in the case however I still think the phantom would be ahead in terms of what it offers.

It looks good but I would prefer a case with a screw-less kit :)

The PCI slots have thumbscrews in place. So I wouldn't look at it as fully screwed.

Its a decent case by the look I'm not to into the flashy side of things anymore I can appreciate something simple like the phantom which is a bit on the flashy side but still isn't overly vegas strip looking. I've been looking at the phantom full tower and the Fractal Design Define R4 (because it has good cooling and noise dampening).
