    Question Building a new pc

    Hi all, well its time i got a new pc and an upgrade for the future sanity of my gaming mind, here is the specs that i have in mind

    Case- Atrix 9001
    Motherboard- XFX NForce 680_ILT9 SLI (Intel)
    Processor- Intel E6600 Core2Duo
    Graph Card- INNo3D GeForce 8800GTS 320mb DDR3
    Memory- Corsair 4096mb TwinX XMS2 6400 DDR2
    Hard Drive- 500GB Samsung SATA II 300 16mb cache 7200rpm oem
    Power Supply- 650W Silent ATX + SATA 12cm fan (brand not known)

    My question is this, is the power supply (watt) good enough for the specs and of coarse your thoughts on how well this new machine will run... This is the first time that i have done this, instead of buying a full system to upgrade, and i wish to get it right first time ALL

    and maby think of getting the 640 mb if your going to be running a high resolution (anything higher than 1280-1024) or if you want anti aliasing.

    How much is the e6600? where i shop (in the UK) the e6600 is more expensive than the e6750 and that is also the same on newegg, so go for that.

    But really, for $196 for an E6750, can you not shell out a little more for the Q6600 ($277 at the egg). I'd not really go for a dual core anymore, quad's are too cheap now.

    As for the psu, i'll never recommend unbranded models, especially if you'll overclock, so think about going for a low noise branded model like an enermax or seasonic. Personally can't stand a noisey PC.

    ummm. with a 700W psu you could run 3 of those. the 400W requirement on the cards box is meant for the whole system, not just the card

    i don't understand what's going on here. It's an 8800 GTS, doesn't matter what brand, it'll pull the same power (within reason).

    For the PSU, go for a good 600W unless you are on a budget. I always look to Seasonic first, after this Corsair (these are also Seasonic) then after this any of the big brands (OCZ, Enermax, etc) with the intention of finding a low noise model.

    Yes i am on a slight budget and i will be going for the OCZ 600 psu
    , the only other things that have changed is the motherboard, (now is) -
    Abit Fatality FP-IN9 SLI and a Core2Duo e6750, but have added a Freezer 7 pro fan for the CPU....
