Default Wanting feedback on new build

Looking at building a new computer, wondering if these seem like good choices to everyone! =)

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 6 Core Processor 2.8GHZ Socket AM3 Retail Box

Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H 890GX AM3 ATX DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI SATA3 USB3.0 HDMI GBLAN CrossFireX Motherboard

x2 G.SKILL F3-10666CL7D-4GBRH Ripjaws PC3-10666 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1333 CL7-7-7-21 Core i5 1.5V Memory Kit

Corsair Professional HX850W 850W ATX 12V 70A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan

Coolermaster Haf X EATX Tower Case Black 6X5.25 5X3.5INT No PS Front USB3.0

Total BEFORE Price Match $1,073.63
YOUR TOTAL $888.14
Those would be the parts I am buying new and I am cannibalizing my old system for some parts
Two Western Digital 640GB
and an LG DVD burner

Old system is also listed in the system thing, but it has died on my ( I think the motherboard) so I thought I'd get something new.

Will be using for a lot of general computing and gaming.

Let me know what you think! =)

It'll be a 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate on it, I like the extra headroom on PSU incase of GPU enhancements, hope I wont have to use it though! haha
I will be overclocking as well, and I know the HX850 is a good stable PSU.
On my old one I had the 600w OCZ GameXstream, and my last build was coming close to it's limits I believe

Yeah it looks like a good selection to me. I agree on the psu. It'll only draw what's needed and as you said gives headroom for expansion. Good luck with the build and enjoy the new system!!!

My System Specs


If you want some headroom I'd recommend 1000W if you can afford it. If you're swimming in cash wait for the Corsair AX-1200.

That's just my opinion, the HX-850 is an awesome PSU.
