Default Re: possible new computer

My current case is by raidmax... but thats just the case and it's only a celeron M and a FX 5200...

I also found a good deal on a 650 watt PSU, by BFG Tech for $75 on sale with free shipping.

it has an 8 pin connector which is needed for the eVGA 750i FTW, but the current PSU that was recommended doesn't have the 8 pin connector... Is BFG Tech a good brand?

The Corsair 550vx has an 8 pin connector. I am not sure how good BFG's power supplies are but I know Corsair's are some of the best.

yeah, but do you think the 650 watt PSU from BFG Tech is a good? (Is BFG Tech a good brand for PSU's?

^^ I am not sure. The specs are ok but I have no idea what their quality is like.
