XFX Contest

Recommended Posts

If I won, either of the PSU's would be used in my current PC. Athlon X6 1100T, ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 motherboard, 4Gb Ripjaw, and 2TB storage. Getting ready to purchase a 6800/6900 series video card as all I have right now is onboard video.

If won, the PSU would go into my main gaming rig:

Graphics: eVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 768MB

The PSU taken out would go into my sister's gaming rig that I'm building for her.

I would add it to my existing rig:

 

Case: ThermalRock Ocean Dome

CPU: AMD Athlon X2 6000

Motherboard: ASRock Alive NF6G-DVI

Ram: 4GB DDR2

Graphics XFX ATI Radeon 5770

PSU: Rosewill 500W

 

Looking to do a overhaul since the Bulldozer processors and possibly pick up another XFX 5770 if I decide to do it. Power supply would definitely push me to doing it since I would need a new PSU anyway for the new processor and extra card for crossfire.

To replace this one:

 

CPU: i5 760 @ 4 ghz

MB: Gigabyte P55A-UD3

Memory: 2 x 2GB Mushkin

Graphics: MSI Hawk GTX 460

SSD (OS): OCZ Vertex 2E

HDD (Storage): 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3, 640GB Western Digital

PSU: OCZ StealthXStream 600W

Case: HAF 912

 

I really need a PSU with better cables as these one are extremely short and makes cable management crap. Having more power for future upgrade would be awesome as well.
