XFX Contest

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately due to a tight budget I think my current system would be the PC that the PSU would go in.

 

I would upgrade the GPU (I'm still on an 8800GTS)

Upgrade storage (take out the under 500GB drives and replaces them all with 1TB drives)

I think I could live with the same CPU as well, but I suppose I could upgrade that at some point as well.

I'm only on a cheapo 500W Antec EarthWatts so this PSU would definitely give me room for some upgrades.

Hmm, that's a tricky one.

I don't really have the money to throw around on new builds, and I did just upgrade my PSU with the thought of upgrading my current rig sometime in the (hopefully) future, so I'm probably least in need of this at the moment.

 

I do quite like the idea of putting together something of a modding project, as I have never really done anything that serious before, so a PSU might be a good excuse to get that underway. I'd want to build my own case (something that has appealed for a while).

The other hardware would pretty much have to be whatever I could scrape together, but ideally I'd like it to be along these lines:

 

- Custom built case (I was thinking along the lines of as quiet as possible with some novel material choices, maybe recycled)

- XFX 750 Pro Core Edition PSU

- Intel 2500K

- Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3

- XFX HD 6970 Black Edition

- Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4

- Corsair F120 SSD

- 3TB Western Digital Caviar Green

 

Realistic? not really.

Would I really like to build it? Yes!

Specs would be:

 

CPU: Intel Q9550 @ 4.0 GHz

GPU: nVidia GeForce 8800GT 512MB

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P

RAM: 4 GB Mushkin 1066 DDR2

HDD: WD Black & Seagate Barracuda

Case: CM590

PSU: Why the XFX if I won, of course

 

Sigh, writing this makes me long for a graphics card/monitor upgrade. Although, honestly, this 8800GT has been one of the best GPUs I've ever purchased... it's still going strong after 2+ years, although I am still only using a 19" 1440x900 monitor.

I would add another card for Crossfire, and this PSU would allow me to better route my wiring in my HAF-932 case.
