building a new PC at the moment, got the MOBO, CPU, and Video card already.
Here is what I have so far
Core i7 930
Asus P6X58D Premium
EVGA GeForce GTX 460
I don't have any RAM for it (ordering it in a few days) and I am getting confused with it. was just going to get some Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600 but when I searched it on Newegg I got this
what the heck is the deal? Why so many different kinds?
Secondly I popped in my new Video Card to my old PC that has a cheap 580W power supply
and I almost fried everything. It started to smell like burning plastic and I could hear feedback in my headset. Shut it down and let it cool off, everything still works fine thank god!
So anyway I am looking for a new power supply and I am having trouble deciding with that as well. I am in love with a certain Seasonic 750W unit
but I am having a hard time spending almost 200 bucks on a PSU.
This one from Antec
looks nice but its 4 rails, I have heard some problems with power distribution on dual and 4 rail power supplies. How many watts go to each rail and is my graphics card plugged into only one rail?
is pretty good and I can get the Antec 900 case with it and upgrade from my crappy Xion Dazl
might just go this route.
I know that basically you get what you pay for but in this case I dont really know what I am paying for. I know I like the modular cables but I dont need them or anything as long as I have what I need.
I do also plan on running a second GTX460 later on should I go bigger than 750W?
Thanks in advance.
