  1. Way too much for your motherboard get an ASRock Extreme 4, if your not planning to add another GPU down the road drop PSU down to 500W if u do all this put the extra money towards a better GPU

    Reason why I am getting that motherboard is because everyone is tested at 4.6Ghz to make sure it is stable before sent to the retailers.

    Also that GPU is the best price to fps on th e market and can overclock to a GTX 680

    Also the PSU is on sale at £80 so that why I am getting it. Best brand as well.

    Haaaayy a reply. Only problem I have is the PSU, some people are saying this PSU can make a coil whine noise.. any others?
  7. Seasonic makes the best power supplies imo they do not whine to my knowledge.

    Just make sure it can be mounted so fan is downwards at bottom so it sucks in air from under the case?
    That i do not know.I would double check with customer service.
