    I was just about to answer your other thread. I personally liked your first choice for psu. Good cpu and your GPU will do you well.

    Just one other suggestion for motherboard but do a comparison.

    let us know your final outcome.

    Hi bob2006ty.

    The motherboard I recommended has the SB750 Southbridge which is supposed to be better. Also the 790 chipsets (790X / 790GX /790FX) are better for OCing. :)

    Hope that helps.
