Default Re: new computer for $800ish

^^^

haha, alot of this is stuff i said earlier, just restated... haha

and my only issue is that Rosewill isnt a top brand in PSUs, more of a money saving brand, imho... its not that 500~W wouldnt be enough... just that its not on any recommended parts lists ive read, and ive just never heard of it being very good... in fact, in the stickied power supply guide, i believe its under the category of quote "Absolute Low End Builds or You're A Cheapskate"... and in the recommended PC components guide its under "LOW-end/budget parts"...
so... seems pretty silly to get mostly pretty high end parts, then scrimp when it comes to the thing that powers it all...
haha just a thought... again, in the end its your call :*
same with the 7200.11, MX-2 and different heatsink... not that what you picked is bad... just that i (and apparently a few others haha) think it could be better...
good luck - RK
