Default My First Build...Maybe

My friend wants a new computer, so I told him that it would be cheaper and better to make one himself, so he asked me to get a list of parts and stuff, so here it is:
+ case updated http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811208009
+ power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182044
+ motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130082
+ cpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115005
+ cooling (stock)
+ ram/memory updated(x2)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820161028
+ hard drives updated(x2)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152025
+ dvd burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152076
+ dvd rom http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106059

No, the PSU is total crap.

Also, if I was you I would get the e6600, but not a lot of people would agree with me. It is just a better deal than the e6300.

System Requirements

Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 26 Amps.)


maybe get the 550watt version of it...still would power it though

it would power a 8800 okay without sli but it as a lot of chance it wont power the 8800 series because not enough amps go thru the 12 v rail. u should have more than 20.

Thank you spyware, finally somebody agrees with me.

A good PSU is incredibly important to a good set up, and yet they are the most underestimated features.
