I also doubt that your psu can handle the 4850, but that pc power and cooling is a good bet. great brand and it has plenty of power.
Ahh okay then. Forget about going that route. I'll just hold off for another month or so and continue with my planned build. I'll list my updated build.
COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
- Switched from the 932 to the 922 because the 922 is slightly shorter. but the inside retains a big room. It being slightly shorter and having about the same inside room as the 932 is perfect for me
Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - OEM
SAPPHIRE 100259-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail
- Its either this or maybe the 4890. I'll have to wait a month and see what happens to the pricing.
SILVERSTONE ST70F 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Retail
- Im set on modular. I decided to go with this instead of the corsair because it is cheaper, but still has my modular needs. Silverstone is pretty reliable too.
OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV6GK - Retail
ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
- I'm looking at the new EVGA X58 LE, but waiting on reviews, etc. I think I'll probably stick with ASUS though. The EVGA X58 A1 is nice, but its up there in price and probably is more than what I want.
Processor probably at Microcenter
