Intel Or Amd?

Recommended Posts

lol an i7 system overclocked to 4.0ghz and two 295 gtx's only uses sub 600W, you are PLENTY safe :D

 

Yeah I always find it amusing when people are building a system with maybe an E8600 and a GTX260 and then they'll go and buy a 700/800w PSU and ask if it's enough or if they should upgrade :lol:

as you can see from what I'm running, I used to be one of those people LOL (except it was only a e6600 and a 8800gtx, which do use more power than an e8600 and a 260 but not 750w worth)

I did it!

I built my PC and it's running great!

I didn't buy any cooling fan cause they said that with the i7 there's no need..

so this is my PC

 

Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz

ASUS P6T Deluxe LGA 1366 Intel X58

Corsair 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Thermaltake Thoughpower 750w

EVGA GeForce GTX 260 896MB

Seagate Barracuda 7200 500 GB

 

Thank you all for the GREAT HELP! :D

Yes they do mine is currently 3.7(will be higher soon)

 

I'm using a Vigor Monsoon 3 and my idle temps are in the mid 50s.

 

When I prime95 it'll shoot up to almost the 90's.

 

Basically don't worry about your temps all that much. Just so long as your comfortable :D

 

BTW OP

 

Congratulationz glad everything worked out for you
