Building new rigg! wont it to be right

Recommended Posts

ive edited my website with what i HOPE is my FINAL settings for this build, from the beginning to now the power of this build and the price has become much more desirable, i thank you all i have learnt a hell of a lot and thanks to every one.

 

it fits it works this is how i want it.

 

For 4 bucks more you can go the 295 over the 4870x2 GLH.

700-750W would be just fine (the 295 is actually more power efficient then a 4870x2)

Just make sure you check the amp rating on the 12v rail, both the 4870x2 and 295 require minimum 46a.

it says up to 50a on the 12v rails so i assume its all good at that right?

 

Yeah should be fine.

 

P.s. It says on your blog that your going with the xfx card, afaik they are all the same and your wasting 50 bucks on a sticker on the side of the card. Id personally go with the Gainward its a reference design (same as the xfx) and its 50 bucks cheaper.

Granted i could of put higher spec ram in (which i should have but didnt) and can probably go to the deluxe model board as well and will keep you under the 3k mark, but you dont get too many flashy bits (aka new fans and whatnot) but that didnt concern me as much as the haf's standard fans flow well.

 

Edit: Just built your machine on their page and came to $2318 (what you have listed in your sig)

Holy hell those are high prices...why not use Newegg?
