How much is that PSU? You can easily get away with an 80+ Bronze 600W~ one, which would help you save more money towards that 128GB SSD.

Also, I'd get a WD Black or Seagate Barracuda over WD Blue.


They mentioned possible SLI, which I don't think the 600w would handle.


A good 600 watt PSU would work. A good 650 watt, I guess if you want to play it safe.


Even with an OC'd cpu? The Haswell's use more power than the Ivy Bridge as well.

770 SLi with OC'd 3960X - 505w from the wall.


well look at that

If you install the OS on there it makes your system incredibly responsive. I used my old PC with a 7200 RPM drive for a while and it's just night and day.


How much memory is good for the os to be installed on? Can i give the os just enought space to fit on there and partition the the ssd and use the rest for caching? or just install the os and maybe use a separate drive for caching?

You won't need a cache drive with your OS on an SSD.
//Intel// Core i7 2600k @ 4.2 //Gigabyte// Z68X-UD7-B3 //MSI// 3x GTX 580 Lightning SLi
//Corsair// 650D / H100 / 120 GB Force 3 / 12 GB Dominator / AX1200

Wouldn't other applications take advantage of a cache drive though?

How is that even possible


I don't know, but it's not happening. It's been like 18 days and they've raised $4731 out of $500,000. Only 14 days left.

Edit: All from Newegg/Amazon, all free shipping. Price does not include tax, if applicable. Build includes CPU cooler and ODD, which isn't included in TC's initial list. Price after rebates is $1375.26 ($1405.26 before rebates).

I'm sure it can be improved. I picked these parts sitting in my car on a tablet, so it was a quick look.


http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1t4Fe ($1375.90 after MIR, $1405.90 before MIR, taxes not included)

Changed the PSU. Just saw the Rosewill Capstone 750-M for the same price as the SeaSonic 650w PSU in my other suggestion.

Edit: Comes out to $1401.01 without any MIR if you want to use Amazon exclusively.

Edit: Was bored. Did a build "cheaping" out as much as I would want to and was able to fit a 7990 into a build @ $1501.24 after MIR,$1551 before MIR, taxes not included.
