Good build. Just about that PSU, 'cause I haven't had much knowledge 'bout it.
How easy is cable management in that case?
I have it and have none none yet so yeah . . .
The only issue was the 24 pin and with this PSU i was able to flatten it, the back of the case has a cavity for more room.
Thanks for the response, would love a picture of the back ;)
Diablotek = no buy
Good thing I didn't use that one.....
But pretty much any diablotek is dangerous. I'd estimate your 675 watt psu is only actually capable of maybe 450-500 watts. not to mention the voltages are terrible on your specific model.
Is really dumb to go with cheap power supply. Especially if it is Diablotek. A rule I always use $1 per 10W. More watts doesn't mean is better.
Is this a hackintosh?
Replacing your whole system is probably going to be a lot more exspensive than buying an actual power supply. Quickly buy a Corsair or Seasonic power supply. Diablotek is crap in general since they probably didn't change their OEM since the last PSU.
I'd recommend the 760 over the 660
Yes bigger is better. :)
It depends on which 660 he is looking at, also if he gets the 760 it has newer tech.
Newer tech + better performance... I'd go 760
MSI GTX 660 OC
Please do not get the 660 and look at the 7870 or 7850 as they both outperform the 660 and the memory-bus on the 660 (192-bit) is absolutely horrible.
I do like the idea of the 7850, i will have to give it a thought.
Again I never stated there wasn't a price difference and he never specified a budget on a card...it was simply a suggestion because a newer card/newer tech IMO is always a good thing.
Don't appreciate the down votes
