I simply cannot make up my mind.

This is my current build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/psshmG

I'm planning to play games such as Planetside 2, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty series, Crysis Series, ArcheAge, WildStar, FarCry Series, Ghost Recon Phantoms and a few other games...

So, I will need good quality PSU.


These are the ones available in what I'm currently looking for.

Thanks guys!

Considering that you both told me the same PSU... Do you confirm that it's the best choice for my gaming rig? I want to make sure, hahah. I was suggested the EVGA 220-G2-0750-XR a lot in the past as well.


On the other hand, what do you think of my Test Build #3? There's also gonna be BenQ XL2420Z as my monitor.

It's my favorite one so far, even tho... I wish I could take the Maximus VI Formula... :( Such a high price but fits the looks of my memory cards so much, lol.

I see... Thanks! What do you think of that build? It's my #3 test build but so far my favorite one and might end up getting that. :na:

I'm going for a black/red design... Later on I'll be buying custom red cables for a few components and LED lights...

All the fans will be changed for other ones but with those red circleish rings.
 
The aerocool DS fans , they look good
check out the bitfenix red/black extension cables they look awesome,
build looks good , not fan of the case but that's your call if you like it is all that matters , nothing wrong with it though
for a compact case check out the coolermaster hafxb evo

I hate compact cases, hahah :no:

I love the looks of it as well as the easy cable management and the space inside of it. :pt1cable:

Yeah, I've seen a few black/red builds with those bitfenix cables but I'd rather get my build going first see how it goes then order black/red cables xD It's already a pain to learn each and every part and what does what... I'm not even 1 week in learning about this kind of stuff.



 


Build looks fine, the XFX is just a touch better than the EVGA which is cheaper and therefore for the current price the best choice.

Haha, I thought it was the other way around but that's all good! I'm far from being ready to build my PC anyway, I have more than enough time to make changes xD :pt1cable:

Hahah, I know!

That's not the biggest issue, the biggest issue is buying a quality and durable one, lol. Especially if it's your first time build you don't know the best ones on the market like some people do.
