yes the 550w can hold it , but remember that you are buying a pc once in 2-3 years and you dont want to push the PSU to the limits through all that time. getting some head room is always healty and if he decides to overclock he will definitively be able to.
and no need for a sound card , the asrock has fantastic on board.
the only reason to get a sound card is if you are using high end headphones that need an amplifier to juice them up . usually those 200-300$+ headphones.
lol ok - well the 650W is only 18 euro's more than the 550W so that's not really a major difference to say no against. Think i'll just go with the 650 for safety measures. I see it's also a bronze-labeled one so it ain't that bad.
I'm now making a comparison-list - one pc with the cheaper items (550W,i5-3470,1333Mhz DDR3 RAM, gtx560TI) and one pc with the i5-3570K,1600Mhz DDR3 Ram, 650W psu, N580GTX to compare prices. Now I'm trying to see if there's any shop with cheaper prices for certain parts and see if i can save some euro's here and there.
nvm, i seem to be unable to find any store that sells the items at a cheaper price than alternate.de guess i'll stay there.
Total cost with the 3570k, 580GTX, 650W and HDD (80bucks) included: 1108.4 euro's. Seems legit.
One final question:
Your suggestions: G.Skill 8 GB DDR3-1333 Kit http://www.alternate.de/html/product/G. ... it/841694/?
can i also use: A-DATA 8GB DIMM DDR3-1600
http://www.alternate.de/html/product/AD ... it/765246/?
and it being compatible with the mobo's and what not else? As I figure that 1600 is better than 1333mhz DDR3. It's only 18 euro's difference
Actually one more question xD:
I got this laptop with win7 home premium - I also have the product key, but as said no OS on a cd. How can i get my win7 os on the new desktop by using the product key i have? (so that it's legitimate) - i still have an XP or vista 32bits version laying around for the laptop so that's np. Just need to get the win 7 on the desktop
