More about build
  1. If you're happy with the choices, it looks great to me.
  2. thanks. Do you think that power supply would handle crossfire 7950s?
  3. Not sure about the psu, but do you not want an ssd?
  4. Would it be worth the extra $100? I still have never used a computer with one, but if it will make my audio/daw programs work faster im all for it. what would be a good one to get?
