Default Re: budget gaming comp

yeah im still debating on the video card and if im going to need a more powerful PSU i like that case and it comes with the PSU for free so idk 430 watts should be enough but il probably have to upgrade when i eventually get my 8800gts.

you get the 430watt thermaltake PSU for free as a combo deal doesnt seem to bad at all.
but what if you want to over clock further?

the worst is when it says its going to come one day and your waiting all day for it and it doesnt come and you have to wait till tomorow. I cant wait to see how fast this computer is going to be compared to the one in my signiture should be a huge noticable difference.

i read alot of reviews on that 430W PSU and many people are using the x1950 pro with it someone said they were even using an 8800gts with it and it works fine.

sweet, yea that should be quite a performance increase, your sig is basically what i have, almost identical actually, the only thing is that, it will run, but its the overclocking that may not work so well on that little power, but with that beast i dont think it'll matter...

yeah i already ordered the x1950 pro it was 125$ after a 20$ rebate. Well Il hafta see how the PSU is i really didnt plan on OCing that much i would prolly OC the processor and the ram a little bit the radeon x1950s arent to great at overclocking but worst case scenerio is i would need a new PSU which isnt to bad.
