Looks good.
You're PSU choice is solid IMHO. Well built.



---AS far as the board and CPU, do you simply prefer AMD or going for the 6 cores?

The reason I ask is you can build a core i7 system, something like:
i7-930 -> Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80601930
Gigabyte x58 -> Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

And would be the same( price wise) or less than the CPU, MOBO Combo you have chosen.

Not to mention, slightly more processing power.
(Yes, even though it appears slower mhz wise)

Keep in mind he extra 2 cores really wont help much at all, if any. For most things. especially gaming, they'd be useless. (I know future proof )
Perhaps some video encoders, but I think the app would have to be coded for 6 cores ..
Heres some Benchmarks of both, at stock and OCd speeds at various different tasks, if it helps:

Just a thought of an additional option for your build. It ultimately boils down to your own preferences.


For the graphics, I always prefered Sapphires brand. particularly the Vapor-X or Toxic lines. They run cooler than refrence cooling, and I have always had very good luck with all of them I've owned. (my own personal preference here of course)
Take a look at them and see what you think.
I'm not saying PowerCooler is a bad choice.

Never had one of those, so i can't say one way or the other.

You can't go wrong with XFX components (yes I'm an XFX fanboy, check my system specs and you'll see...); their customer service isn't always the most pleasant or helpful, but their products are excellent quality and their graphics cards come with slightly higher clock speeds than other manufacturers...

I do have one point though; 650w is definitely enough for what you've listed, but all the boards you've listed (in this post and the first post) support multiple graphics cards... If you're planning to add another card later, get a bigger PSu now and save yourself some money later. If you're not planning to go for CrossFire or SLI, then save yourself some money now and get a single Pci-e board.

Just another reason or opinon on the XFX is the warranty. I either use XFX or Evga cause I've always had great customer service form both. XFX uses the ticket system for questions and RMA;s and personaly I've always been contacted within 24 hrs of submitting one.
So I guess what I'm saying is I like the Card choice. And i agree with the PSU just for future proofing. Fabe

Of course, I can't believe I forgot to mention that... Although EVGA's double lifetime warranty (only on certain items though) is a very nice deal that XFX haven't attempted yet...

I made that mistake when setting up my machine; now I'm stuck with needing to get a bigger PSU (currently 500w) before I can get a better GPU (hoping for a GTX295); if I can help someone else learn from my mistake, then it wouldn't have been completely in vain... Lol.

I would agree that a slightly bigger PSU wouldn't be a bad idea if running multiple GPUs are something you may want to do.

One other thought, I do not know what your budget is, but if you could squeeze in a SSD for the OS and apps would really make a nice performance difference as well.
Something like a 40GB or 80G Intel. Then use the spinning drive for Games and DATA.
Although, this could come later down the line.



But... and this question is to satisfy my own curiosity as well

If the OP decides to go with the Intel build, and only wants to run a single GPU:

Would the x58 board still not be the better choice?

What I mean is, I understand one if its major features are X-Fire/SLI but even if thats someting you have no plans to do,
We are also talking Tripple Channel memory VS Dual Channel in say a P55.

X58 isnt really that much more than a P55

That's a valid point there... Although I do know a fair amount about Intel, I've had more experience with AMD, so I actually forgot about that.
