Advice on my build


Mar 11, 2014

So this is my build. My budget is 700€. I have come up with this but i would like to change some components to get into the 700€ budget.

So what do you think about the power supply ? Does it need to be 600W or can i install less powerfull ? And also about motherboard. I hope there is a little cheaper motherboard out there to change, but i couldnt find it...

Ty for your answers!
Something like this would be better for less:

The PSU uses bad caps, so I'd replace it. 500 watts are enough for anything until a 280X as a 290 requires at least a 600 watt PSU.

The motherboard in my build is of great quality.

The GPU is a 280, so it beats the 270X.
