Default Re: Power Supply on first build

This is a break down of some of the prices I have to get to that $1100 can.
ASUS P7P55D Pro $199
Intel i5 2.66GHz $229
Corsair 8GB XMS PC3-10600 DDR3 $259
Corsair TX 750W PSU $113
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB $125
3xWestern Digital Caviar Black 500GB SATAII ran in Raid $195
LG Super-Multi 22x DVD Writer SATA $ 24

The Intel i7 920 2.66GHz is $330
Corsair 8GB XMS PC3-12800 DDR3 $279
Even if I look online at Tiger or Newegg by time I add the shipping the prices are pretty close to these. So if you have someother places with better prices I would love to know about.
Thanks
John

On the Hard Drive set up, would it be safe to say that running a 160GB for the OS and then two 500GB's or two 750GB's would be the way to go over three 500GB drives

Good to see you getting multiple hdd's. It's much easier to back up your data with extra hard drives rather than dvd's.

One thing may I suggest isback down on the RAM and up your graphics. You shouldn't ever need more than 4GB. But in all honesty, you can't go overboard with the graphics. I'd say go with a 4870 or a 4850. Nvidia is currently too expensive and underpowered.
