My System Specs

Default Final opinion before I order

My Gaming Pc

Gigabyte P55A-UD3 ATX LGA1156 P55 DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI RAID GBLAN CrossFireX USB3.0 SATA3 = 134.79
Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor = 199.99
Noctua NH-U12P SE2 = 57.77
EVGA 012-P3-1470-AR GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP = 289.99
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) = 96.99
COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Advanced Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case = 79.75
Samsung SH-S243D/BEBE 24X Black DVD Writer SATA = 19.99
Logitech 5.1 Surround Speaker System (X-540) = 51.99
Razer DeathAdder 3500 Gaming Mouse 5 Button 3500DPI = 49.93
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB SATA2 3.5IN 8.5MS 7200RPM 32MB = 59.99
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64BIT DVD OEM = 93.79
Corsair Professional HX750W 750W ATX 12V 62A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC = 149.99
Diamond TV Wonder 650 Theater PCI-E TV = 54.79

Total = 1370.75
  • Should I change any of the parts before I finalize my decision?
  • Does anyone know if I could get any of these parts for cheaper than I listed them?

I recommend this PSU instead: Newegg.ca - XFX Black Edition P1-750B-CAG9 750W ATX12V v2.2 / ESP12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

It's just as good or slightly better than the HX750, and is a fair amount cheaper with the rebate factored in. Other than that, everything looks good to me.

looks good to me, would it have the same reliabilty as a corsair?

I was able to find it a bit cheaper @ XFX 750W Black Edition Single Rail Modular ATX 12V 62A 24PIN ATX Power Supply 80PLUS Silver - DirectCanada

just a note - I use shopbot.ca and it is able to find the best prices in canada match it with NCIX pricematch and im able to save almost $400

Yes. It's manufactured by Seasonic which is one of the best PSU manufacturers.

Maybe go with a Samsung F3 1TB or Western Digital Black. Up to you really though, all perform about the same I guess.

try to order from one place, i.e. ncix and pricematching to the dc linkie.

the samsung drives can be a bit faster than the wd blacks in some situations, there was a thread some time back upon it.

jd's sugestion, look above. as per size, it depends if you want to spend 20 more bucks now or maybe have an ssd as mains in the near future and perhaps a green drive as data drive.

edit before you checkout, give the trading section another look, you never know when somebody pops a thread with an item you might end up buying retail
