His PSU isn't too small. Its not ideal, but it will run a singke 560 pretty easily.

A 500watt can run a 7950

We all know porn is involved. It is just pointless to even bring it up nowadays.

pretty amazing.
experience depends on whether or not you have a fleshlight, a vacuum, and a bit of duct tape and ingenuity.

Wouldn't it help with streaming? Maybe it helps with the really good high def stuff.

80W for CPU

Yep.

Ivy's very efficient and 7series radeons do not pull that much. If he would have went 670 it would have pulled even less.

This is my first build. I am going to start on it tonight but it might take a while because I want to do it exactly right.

I have all of the guides from the subreddit buildapc, the newegg videos


Did the same thing last Saturday using the same resources. It really shouldn't take you more than a couple of hours. I did have to spend about five hours troubleshooting, however, but that was because I didn't feel like reading the motherboard manual or watching the Newegg video in its entirety. Turned out alright in the end, though. Posting from it now.

You can't just look at the wattage on a PSU when thinking about the GPU.


You need to find what AMPERAGE the video card maker says you need on the 12v rail of the PSU and make sure the PSU has that.

I loved my first 8gb of it that I bought another 8gb since they had discontinued it on Newegg. Running like a champ.

OP when you finish take some pics of it. We have a lot of very similar components.

Update:

Build is coming along nice, but I definitely underestimated the difficulty of plugging in all of the cables.



Right now I am stuck on 3 cables. The guide for my MOBO and the labels are the plugs are different and I can't figure out where they go. They are the power LED cables and the power SW







Other than those plugs, all I have left to do is put in my video card, tuck all of the cables away, and I am ready to rock.


One more question. My SSD didn't come with a cable. I have (2) SATA 6G b/s cables. Don't I need a different cable for my SSD than for my HDD?
