The two things I would say though is that Cooler Master power supplies tend to not be the best out there. I would recommend this one instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... Also the GTX 650 is quite a weak card. Are you playing at 1080p? If so I'd recommend going for this card instead for $70 more: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If you want to maintain the price of the GTX 650, I'd recommend the 7770 instead, which can be had for the same amount, and is a much stronger card (in the region of 25% or so for most games).

Get the answer paulb88 March 6, 2013 6:47:42 AM My buget is around 800 dollars and what power supply's would be good to support all of my parts and I heard that CPU doesn't work with a amd gpu that's why I went with nvidia and thanks for all of the help. m 0 l marshallbradley March 6, 2013 9:28:24 AM Nope, your CPU will be fine with an AMD(ATI Really) GPU. Perhaps it was the motherboard they were talking about or something. With $800 you should be able to get an i3 and a 7870. This is the power supply I would go for: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... For some reason it didn't work when I linked it earlier. This should be able to handle any single card setup (so you can upgrade stuff if you need without running out of power). M m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
