    Gaming Rig Everything right?


    Hello, I din't know where to put my build so I put it here. Take a look:

    Intel Core i5-4690K, MSI GeForce GTX 970, Corsair SPEC-02 - System Build - PCPartPicker

    I'm a bit confused on the power supply side of things. Should I get a more wattage PSU? An 80+ Gold PSU? Any recommended PSU's that no more than 80$?
    Thanks in advance.

    The graphics card requires a "minimum" of 500W power supply GeForce GTX 970 | Specifications | GeForce
    You are buying a 500W power supply so you have very little wiggle room if you add anything else later ( another drive, etc.).
    I would step up to the Corsair CX750M PS. Amazon.com: corsair 750w power supply

    Also it doesn't look like your optical drive supports Blu-ray (BD).

    Otherwise - that is going to a nice system. Enjoy

    O.k. saving a bit still with EVGA, not sure MSI beats it in quality.

    Want quietness in case can't beat these, do not think of color when see them, they are quietest fans ever Computer Hardware, Fans & PC Cooling, Case Fans, noctua - Newegg.com

    CX model with Corsair were not the greatest, take a look here at first 2 model, EVGA for one, both full modular, do not need 750w, 650w be enough.

    wouldn't be bad to of thought of an intel i7 for gaming machine instead of i5 and ASUS board. Nice case though.

    I'm still saving up for the build but I've head that the MSI edition performs better than most and has excellent cooling.
