So kalganize i bought all of the stuff listed minus the vid card so far and i got it all hooked up and it doesnt look like i have enough of the 6 pin connecters, any ideas? the stuff i bought is on page 9 i believe.
Sorry 1st time im building a computer i just wanna make sure i got everything. i know im short 1 sata cable but i can get another 1 but im only seeing the 1 6 pin connecter ill look through the box and see if i got extra connecter things tho
Do you know anything about the power supply in this combo here? Looking around, it seems to be ~85% efficient anywhere from 200-600watts, but more information is always nice. Trying to get as much as info as possible before I finalize my build in the next day or so.
I was going to OC, and my thought was that it would save me buying a better power supply down the road if/when I decide to add more graphics cards.
Is the case overpriced? That was the one thing I didn't want to skimp on, since it's the part that I can stick with the longest.
A good mid-tower case can be had for $50, and a good 80 Plus Bronze certified 500W can be had for $50 too.
850W is definitely not necessary unless you plan to do SLi / XFire for sure -- and even then, SLi / XFire is totally wasted if you will only play on a single monitor.
Hm, I'll keep looking around then. Still keeping hope to find that one great discount/combo >.>
Edit: Do you know how much space a 64GB SSD has on average after installing windows64?

Hm well I think I finially found what I'll end up with, just wanted to check to make sure I'm not missing anything obvious that I should be doing... it's been quite a long time since I've gotten a PC.

So i recently built a computer based on your budget build and your >$1000 build. When I first ran it the fps was great everywhere. Pretty much 50+ sometimes down to 40ish in heavy bg situations.
For some reason the past couple days it has been sitting around 15-25 in SW. It gets a little better in bg's and the world but not much. I haven't changed the settings although they are maxed (except shadows to high) When i change all the settings to low it goes up to about 20-25.
I am just wondering if there is anything I may have incidently done to throw my fps off so much? Changing things like multi sampling doesn't change the fps either, so I am not sure what the issue could be.
