    Newegg has a bunch of deals going on right now so I've decided I am going to build a new computer. How does my list look?


    One thing that I am uncertain of is the psu. It needs to be at least 1000W because I want to be able to crossfire 4870x2 in the future (Same reason for getting the Gigabyte mobo).

    Input appreciated

    Don't get velociraptor.
    Get 2 WD640AAKS and put them in Raid 0. Much faster than Velociraptors.

    technically you only need 850w for 4870x2 crossfire

    you can play around with this psu calculator
    http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
    choose the lite version then select all the stuff thats gonna be in your comp then calculate (leave blank whatever is not gonna be used, like liquid cooling, cases lights ect...)
