Question New RIG! helpz :P

hey guys.

im not that technical when it comes to computer components and such. i know the basics and thats about it :P

but i need your help with a couple of things

1. will the motherboard be able to use this RAM

2. is the PSU big enough to be able to run these components keeping in mind that i want to ultimately have two 5850's in the future...

any other things that i need to know?

specs:
Intel Core i5 670 Processor LGA1156 3.46GHz 4MB Cache CPU
Asus P7P55D-E-Deluxe P55 4DDR3 FSB2133(OC) RAID 2GBLAN PUSB3 SATA3 ATX
G Skill 6G(3x2G) DDR3 2000Mhz PC16000 9-9-9-27(6GBRH)
XFX HD5850 1G Black Edition
Corsair HX-850 ATX Power Supply w 140mm Modular Cables
Antec TWELVE HUNDRED Full Tower Gaming Case NO PSU

cheers guys

I think that 2000MHz Ram is overkill.

You can check the Watts needed here.

don't get an i5 670, you should be able to find an i5 750 quad core for almost the same price.

mobo looks good, but like Xenofix mentioned, you probably won't be needing 2000mhz ram unless you plan on doing some pretty hefty OCing. 1333 or 1600mhz ram will do.

skip the black edition 5850, it only comes with a minor OC that you can match and surpass yourself without paying the extra money. just get the regular xfx 5850.

the psu is good, but is also on the overkill side. you can get a corsair 750tx, or if you want the modular, the 750hx. either will work fine for your build and support upgrades including another 5850 for xfire.

case is good.

yer the ram is overkill but thats alright :P

the 670 is dual core whereas the 750 is quad and i dont see myself using it to the fullest. the 670 is clocked faster than the 750 also so it will run a program/game faster than the 750 and i dont think ill have multiple programs opened at once.

opinions on this?

also ill take that advice with the 5850. appreciated

im also changing the PSU to a Antec Signature 850W ATX Power Supply. i need a 850w instead of the 750 because i have a 150gig raptor, and 4x1 TB HDDs and other peripherals that need to be powered, aswell as upgrading to a 2nd 5850 in the future.. thats my reason for getting a 850w instead of a 750w that i was looking at before.

anymore advice will be appreciated guys

ok i have revised the parts and changed some... well most

heres a new list... tell me what you think guys

Intel Core i5 750 Processor LGA1156 2.66GHz 8MB Cache CPU
with
Cooler Master Hyper TX3

Asus P7P55D-E-Deluxe P55 4DDR3 FSB2133(OC) RAID 2GBLAN PUSB3 SATA3 ATX
G Skill 4G(2x2G) DDR3 1600Mhz PC12800 RL 9-9-9-24(CL9D-4GBRL)
XFX HD5850 1G PCIE 2D HDMI
Antec Signature 850W ATX Power Supply
Antec TWELVE HUNDRED Full Tower Gaming Case NO PSU

im changing to the i5 750 and going to OC it to 3.6 or 3.8 with the hyper TX3

ive read great reviews on the i5 750 with that CPU cooler and runs great when OCing

ive also revised the ram because lets face it 2000mhz is a "little" overkill and i kept reading the mobo specs and found that it doesnt support 2000mhz anyway(i JUST COULDNT RESIST WHEN I SEEN THAT 2000mhz :P). so im getting 4gig ripjaws @ 1600mhz instead... saves the wallet also, although that wasnt really a factor.

helpful advice?

nope. you can't just compare them based on clock speed, that just won't give you an accurate comparison.

side by side comparison here,
Bench - CPU - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News
even though the i5 750 is clocked lower, it beats the i5 670 in almost all tests.

a few hdds along with xfire'd 5850s would not require an 850w psu. ati themselves recommend a 600w psu for a system with xfire'd 5850s even though they wouldn't consume nearly that much power.

what other peripherals are you referring to?
