|Hi everyone, |
After having some problems with my old pc i decided to give the old machine (fixed) to my little one and build myself a new machine.
I know that the components i have selected may not be ideal for the type of board i chose but my budget and needs kind of dictated what i could buy, bar the board, i read a few reviews and saw some videos and well liked this mobo.
Here is what i have built:
Mobo: Asus Rampageiv Extreme
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 3.60GHz (Sandybridge-E) Socket LGA2011 Processor - Retail
CPU Cooler: Intel 2011 CPU Cooler
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti HAWK 1024MB GDDR5
RAM: G Skill 16gb DDR3-1600 CL8 Ripjawsz F3-12800CL8Q-16GBZH 8-8-8-24
SSD: Sandisk Extreme SSD3 (for OS only)
I already had the following drives all sata
500gig western digital blue (films)
500gig wester digital black (software)
500gig western digital (my work)
I also used my old PSU ThermalTake Toughpower 750w
The sticker on the side has the following info
+5v +3.3v +12v1 -12v +5VSB
28A 30A 18A 0.3A 3A
Note there are four +12v rails all at 18A
Note i couldnt see the last part of the sticker properly so not sure is "+5vSB" is correct
My question really is then is this PSU suffient for my hardware? Im not really an avid overclocker as im not very familiar with it though will like to learn and maybe be tempted to OC at some point.
Not sure if my RAM and CPU choice was appropriate for OC'ing Probably the i7-3930 would have been a better choice but way too expensive.
I do play some games on my pc likes of gta, battlefield, crysis etc.... But do more programming and video editing.
I run Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP 1
Any comments/suggestions will be greatfully recieved.
