Wow muffin man's combo deals looks to be an even more awesome build than mine
thanks a lot for finding such a great mix. i haven't even been looking into the combos.
all the parts are looking awesome and i was even able to upgrade to am3 without paying over for DDR3 memory that the other mobos require. also love the graphics upgrade. can't go wrong with 4870 --> 4890
my only concern is the PSU. one of my friends already suggested that FSP Epsilon PSU is crap
i googled FSP Epsilon and saw a lot of post about any FSP Epsilon over 500W being a waste
So this is this PSU an FSP epsilon. and if so is it still safe
also its 500W. will it still support the new build that muffin man posted?
found a good psu & case combo for about 40 buck more
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V version 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
more power = safer power (in my opinion) so this should be helpful and antec earthwatts is supposed to be one of the more reliable brands
only problem is that the case has no external 3.5" drive bays
but that is only useful for floppy drive rite? since i don't use floppys then there should be no problem rite?
will prbly get the combo build with this PSU tonite
any other ideas or suggestions or warnings are welcome before i commit
