dont get the Power Supply, its complete crap, like you said.


you would want this PSU instead for sure.

PCI Express is for higher end, or current gen, GPUs.

what kind of games are you wanting to play?
What resolution?

I would suggest

if you can find a combo deal with the phenom II X4 955 then get that instead. its really easy to overclock.

OCZ Fatal1ty 550W Modular

It's about as cheap as the ones you're looking to get, after Rebate, promo code, and shipping.

It has the new standard 20+4 ATX and 4+4 EPS 12V. Check to make sure it can handle the card you wish to use and that it has enough connections and power for the rest of the rig.

Default Re: is this a good build??

Any reason why you want a 600+ watt PSU? Even when you listed a 550 in your OP. Also, that system won't pull that much wattage, so you are just wasting money if you spend money on a cheap quality 600W over a quality ~550W.

Wattage isn't the only thing when it comes to PSUs.
Either way, with the case, you can only get a 550W for free.

Secondly, you could get a ram kit rather than getting two 2GB sticks separately. You also could probably get better quality ram with a ram kit, like g.skill or OCZ.

Good choice on going with AMD. I agree with what theyre saying. you dont really need that big of a PSU unless your planning on getting a bigger GPU later down the road... Are you?
