Power Supply: Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 550W
Memory: Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL9 XMP 2x2GB
Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD5770 HDMI DisplayPort Dual-DVI 1GB
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 32MB 500GB
I still need a CPU, preferably a decent AMD, and a decent Motherboard that will work with/has slots for all of the above. So the way I see it so far, the motherboard has to have at least:
- 2x PCI Express x16 slots (I'll probably want to add an extra graphics card later, want room for expansions)
- ATX Form (Obviously)
- 4x DDR3 Slots (Again, for expansion purposes)
- Preferably high-speed SATA connections
- Whichever socket the final chosen CPU uses (Quite possibly will end up being an AM3)
What should I keep in mind in terms of the power supply, should I consider something with more output?
And if anyone has suggestions for a sweet, not-too-pricey tower that will fit these components, please let me know
EDIT: Ok, here's the final list so far...
Is the power supply going to be adequate for what's there? I'm not quite sure how to evaluate power supplies, and I'm not sure if I'll need extra cooling or not.
Anyone have ANY comments on this rig? Even saying [bleep] it's nice would be helpful, I want feedback as this is my first attempt
