Default Comments on this build please...

Have a friend that is asking me for advice on a gaming rig. I didn't really nail down exactly what he should get. I gave him a couple options with cpu's (q6600, i7) as well as gpus (285, 4870). Cost vs performance mainly. He said he has about 1200-1400 to spend, not including monitor.

Here is a link to his wishlist on newegg. I know he has two gpu's in there but don't mind that. You will need to log in to see it.

https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...px?ID=10926146

He also had questions about this psu but I know nothing about it.

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S75CF 750W EPS12V SLI NVIDIA SLI Certified (Dual 8800 GTX and below) CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

If you want to add anything please feel free. Thanks for the help.

I dont have a newegg account so i wont comment on the build, however, that PSU is extremely good. PC Power and cooling are top notch, and that one is at a VERY good price. In comparison the corsair 750tx is $20 more expensive, and would normally get recomended here, but even corsair dont make PSUs as good as these guys.

I own that PSU, best PSU I've ever owned.
As for his list, its all messed up.
I see a LGA775 board with a Core i7, and 2 different GPU's.
If you want, I can throw you a pretty good build for 1400$.
Any preferences?

Sorry about that. I was giving him a few options and didn't notice that. For now I think maybe just another mobo recommendation incase he does go the i7 route. He might end up going with the q6600 though so if you can possible recommend a mobo for the i7 and then considered this build as well with the q6600. (Comments or recommendations)

Thanks

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty sure he will not be overclocking.

Yeah, that is the best price to performance psu I could find, so I have just purchased it myself a few days ago. I wish it wasn't red though. I got the antec 900, and that is a blueish case. I bet that is part of the reason it is a good deal though. I would see that costing at least $10 more if it was a good color.
