    There is no PSU in that second case, and the first only has a 460W supply in it. The GTX 480 pulls up to 450W at full load. The Phenom II also pulls alot of power, so you do need a quite powerful PSU. I would say something like a 650W Corsair or similar should do it, you would need more for SLI later though.

    so i switch:

    OCZ modXstream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI certified Crossfire Ready 80 plus certified modular active PFC power supply compatible with CORE I7

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018

     

    toward this:

    Corsair HX  series CMPSU-650HX  650W  ATX12V  V2.2 / EPS12V  2.91 SLI ready Plus active PFC power supply

    doesn't the first one have a 700W though compare to the second one with 650W or am i missing something

  • jammertk10jammertk10 Member CommonPosts: 88

    The first power supply is indeed 700W and will run safer than the 650. You also have a case with a built in power supply in your first post, but I can see you switched the case in the second post. That will run every MMO on the market today well, and most likely in the future (Most MMOs don't have much of a graphical requirement, even on full settings).  That 480 can run very hot (96 C or around 200 F ) on a full load, so I would make sure your cooling is very good and you've got good flow throughout the case. If you're looking for a good website to help with computer building might I suggest.... tomshardware (.com) it's very good and the forums cover everything! 

     

    Good luck!

    Beo

     

    P.S. The HAF 932 is a very good open case for cooling and the Hyper 212+ is also very good to cool your CPU so you can easily overclock if need be. Other than that you've built a decent system for your price point! :)

    That looks like a nice system , Grats. Im putting one from my wish list in ot to suggest it's any beter. Your card looks very very good.

    This is just my thinking, looking toward the future, and eventual crossfiring, as well as, the SATA 6.0 HD's. Perhaps this with your card? It would change the rebate and combo deals some what.


    well I cant get it to show the combo deals, or edit it now, sry


    $1193.84 - $68.00 Combo deals - $40.00 Rebate + $12.26 shipping = $1098.10 Total


  • viddsterviddster Member UncommonPosts: 220

    Sorry that 700W is fine I did not see it, just the 460W with the case.

  • skeith138skeith138 Member Posts: 176

    yah i'll probably need more coolers for the graphic card. als oheard the card is pretty big >.> so i might end up with a hussle on putting one. but other then that TY so much for the help =) cuz apearantly people in this forum just don't like me =(.

    but its ok i'm not mad. would learn computer hardware by myself little by little.

    PS. i'm thinking of going for computer programing, already spend 1 year in college with undecided but planing to take classes for it.

    I'd take that Corsair unit any day of the week over the OCZ unit. The ModXStream units have noisier fans, have poorer power output quality, and I've seen way too many threads involving borked computer parts that could be traced back to them.

  • jammertk10jammertk10 Member CommonPosts: 88

    Yeah Corsair has AMAZING PSUs, I've bought from them twice, once I was overusing ~670 on a 650 unit and it just breezed by. They rock with product quality. Look at the length in the case vs. the length of the 480 if you're worried about it getting messed up. AFAIK the GTX 480 is around 10.5in. So it should fit in higher end Mid-Size cases and easily in Full-Size cases. 

     

    If your undecided give programming a try, not much to lose and you could be one of the next great developers. Check out Microsoft Dreamspark, if they have your Uni/College/School on their list you can get all the dev software you need free! Even if they don't send them an e-mail to explain your situation and I'm sure they'll be happy to hook you up :) 

     

    Good luck with your computer and programming!

    First of all, the motherboard has a pretty good manual so you don't need a website. You do need an ESD bracelet (5 bucks) however.

    A few thoughts:

    As someone said before, Corsair PSU are best. 750W is recommended. 

    Also, get 6Gb 1600 mhz memories instead. Kingston, Corsair and Samsung makes the best but OCZ is ok I guess.

    As an owner of a 480 card I also recommend you to have the largest possible tower for it. If you have a small one you will get heat problems, with a large it is no problem whatsoever.

    This computer will run every game out maxed.

    Another cool thing I got for mine is Corsairs H50 water cooling system for the processor. Costed like 80 buks or so here (Sweden) and keep my AMD processor cool as a summer breeze.

    this is my rig BTW, bought it 3 weeks ago:

    AMD Phenomena II X6 3,2 ghz

    8GB Corsair 1600 mhz DDR3

    ASUS Crosshair IV MB

    ASUS 480 GTX

    Corsair 950W PSU

    4 raided Intel X-25 (somewhat of an overkill but those and the Chieftek maxi tower are from my last computer, today I would get a single X-25 Extreme instead for system drive)

    A few WD and Seagate 1,5 and 1 TB harddrives.

    If you get any problems with assembling it, give my a PM :). I build my friends systems for a case of beer to keep my skills up so I built a löt.
