Default Looking for a PRO to check my first build

This is the dream-computer I plan to build upon finishing my degree. I assembled it all on NewEgg, and I have the individual links posted here labeled as such. Could somebody please check over my build and make sure I didn't make any mistakes in my selection?



Motherboard: Newegg.com - ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Processor: Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

Video Card: Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Memory: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Power Supply: Newegg.com - Rosewill Green Series RG430-S12 430W Continuous @40įC, 80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7,i5" Power Supply

Hard Drive: Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Blue WDBAAV3200ENC-NRSN 320GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

CD/DVD/BD-Drive: Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Combo Model SH-B123L LightScribe Support - Blu-Ray Drives

Case: Newegg.com - Antec Lanboy air Blue Black / Blue ATX Mid Tower Computer Modular Case



Not looking for criticism, I'm sure there are better ways to make what I'm trying to make. All I want to know is if it will work, and if all the parts are compatible. Also, I plan on putting two HDDs on RAID 0, but that's a different story!

Thanks, fellow geeks!

A 500w power supply, with a minimum of 30 amps on the 12v rail, is recommended for the 560 Ti.

Yha, slays right, plus that psu will not make 430W, probably more like 370W.

Always buy a psu with the most Amps you can afford at your chosen W rating.

Actually that PSU would probably be fine, it has 33A on the +12V rail. However, it would be cutting it a little close.

Here is one only 10 dollars more: Newegg.com - Rosewill RV2-600 600 W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V SLI Ready Power Supply

Never thought I'd see someone suggest a Rosewill PSU, you see the failure rate on that thing?
Same price (after MiR) OCZ Fatal1ty 550w, same amps.

at first I did not want to t post because 2 things;

1. I am not a pro
2. he didn't want criticism

butttt, since everyone else doing it, I am going to hop on the train and suggest you ditch that legacy IDE hard drive and get a SATA hard drive.

? Rosewill has always been a decent budget choice. CWT make most of their PSUs...

Rosewills are made by atng... They make good ones, but its dependant on the oem to order it.

At a low price such as it is, i'd not expect a high end atng.

Clown, he probably didnt notice... i didn't.

Rosewill power supplies may not be the worst but they are far from being good. I would label them as being among the better class of low grade power supplies. I'll never buy one.
