please comments my new build

Recommended Posts

e6550 w/ecs 945gct/1333 combo 150$ frys

corsair ddr2 800 pc6400 2x1gb 4-4-4-12 30$(50$MIR) frys

xfx geforece 8600gt 80$(30$MIR) newegg

seagate 7200 sata/3 320gb 65$ frys

samsung 20x dvd 202 25$ newegg

antec nsk4480 w/380W 30$(30$MIR) zipzoomfly

keyboard, mouse, 20$ newegg

viewsonic vx2240w 240$(20$MIR) zipzoomfly

total price 640$

total tax 60$(too expansive here)

total shipping 26$

final price 726$

system free, opensuse or ubuntu

 

my original budget is 600$, but finally go above 700$. So i might return

8600 VC, and use onboard vc temporally. Do you think 8600 price might drop a

lot in half year? also i might return e6550 combo, go newegg get some better

motherboard with cheaper cpu.

 

how do u guys think of it? any comments?

the same question like other builds, can my build beat dell system?

 

thanks

Granted the E6550 and 8600GT don't need a lot of juice, I personally wouldn't go with anything less than 500W.

 

Something along the lines of a Corsair HX625 would be an excellent choice.

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is the PSU; 380W is way underpowered for a system of that caliper

 

 

Hmm, 380W is definetly enough for that system. I know plenty of people (German forum) that run GTXs on Seasonic 380W PSUs with no problems.

The question there would be if their rigs are 24hr prime stable.

 

I personally wouldn't trust a GTX + C2D/C2Q to a 380W PSU.

im with rado on this one, even though i know how good the seasonics are for their ratings.

 

i was running my old icfx3200, e6600 , x1900xtx ,6x fans & pump on my seasonic 600watt. if i wasnt careful on how i balanced out the psu's rails it would reboot when overly pushed.

 

so i bought my current silverstone 850 & alls been well since then.
