    i would consider buying a PSU of better quality (when that time comes) like an Enermax or PC Power. also the wattage isn't nearly as important as the amperage when it comes to running high-end video cards. just get the amperage rating that's required for the video card(s) you want to use, and then try to find a PSU with a powerful single rail, ideally. single rails are better because they can support max load, while multiple rails are basically just clones that can only support so much amperage each.

    5770's are nice though... basically ~4870 with direct X 11 support...

    just found out i could have gotten a better deal on the drives right down the road at fry's electronics.

    they have a 500gb ecogreen sansung for $44.99

    Well if it makes you feel any better Samsung and Hitachi hard drives seem to have a shorter lifespan... at least from what I've encountered. I would stay away from Hitachi Deskstar drives in particular which are notorious for head crashes. Best off with WD or Seagate anyways.

    you'd have to try really hard to notice the difference in cache sizes... and the disk will get slower and slower anyways so it doesn't really matter. unless you defrag your drives every week or do a ton of file management it's not going to be very noticeable. games may run a little smoother at first but

    that's a great psu... corsair makes decent units above 600w. below, not so much

    Raidmax makes some decent PSUs. I got the 750W version of
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817152036
    It is really good for my machine, although you will need the higher end version that comes with 4 PCI power cables. This one only has 2. The 750W had a rebate and a combo deal with the Smilodon case that also had a rebate. I got this and the case for 90$ total, really good deal for some good hardware.

    This PSU is extremely stable and has good efficiency ratings, especially with the MSI 790FX-GD70 Mobo I got.

    ehhh i would still be more inclined to recommend a PSU with a single rail as opposed to dual. the raidmax looks plenty impressive and i like the modular design but corsair's line of higher end units is relatively bulletproof. of course a decent warranty is always nice and so is 85% efficiency, so i'm not gonna say it's crap either. heck, i'm using a 1000w modular by Ultra, who is not well-praised for power supplies, and the thing has been amazing. only 78% efficiency @ 1000w but over 70A on a single +12v rail

    Why would I have this many comps? I plan on taking the m11x to work with me everyday because they blocked so much stuff I usually check at lunch. The desktop is for my house I rent and the other laptop is going to used at my parents house since I stay there 2-3 a week as is. this leaves me the ability to play any games I want anywhere I go. the m11x was also bought to be used on the road since I do travel a bit.

    ended up upgrading my ram since the p5ne-sli board seemed to be frying my sticks. ended up with an nforce 680i sli mobo with 8 gigs of a-data ddr2-800mhz . that's the max the mobo can take.

    still running with an nvidia gtx260

    ended up buying a new case and power supply as well. got the antec 300 with 3x120mm fans.. One outputs 133cfm at 3000rpm (this one is pointing at my gfx card) and something liek 46dba and the other two output 67cfm at 1600 rpm (these two are pointing at the hard drive bays and i got two exhaust fans at the top and back.

    The powersupply is an xfx 650watt modular powersupply..fucking modular is pro..makes it so much nicer.


    Pun was here.
