Hey guys

Just got all my parts for the new system and was wondering what you guys think! Heres what i got:

Phenom ii X4 940 black edition
Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P motherboard
Asus EAH 4850 GPU
Seagate 500gb SATA HDD
OCZ StealthXtream 600w PSU
Sony 20+- DVD-Drive
4GB patriot 800mhz ddr2 ram
Lucent PC case (Never heard of em, looks good enough though)
4x 120mm fans

SO just tell me what you guy think, good deal, bad deal ect

Also i was wondering if the PSU would support 2x 4850s in CF?

Thanks
Jordan

I thought Lucent was a telecom company. Anyway, 4 x 120 mm fans sounds good, especially with two HD 4850 cards in there.

Yes that PSU is powerful enough for HD 4850 CF. Minimum recommended is 550W, according to this:

Too bad you bought first and asked later. Not a winning strategy, you know... Anyway, you did good. I'd have recommended a few minor changes (Corsair 650W, WD 640GB Caviar Black, LG burner), but it's too late now and what you got is good enough anyway.

Thanks for the reply.
I did do ALOT of research before buying as this is my first build but i couldnt seem to find a definitive answer about the psu. Also about the HDD i dont need that much space and also i didnt really want to go over 500 pound, same story with the psu.

Anyways thanks. Gives me piece of mind concerning quality.
