    not quite the same subject. I switched from Intel to AMD. I wasn't wanting your guy's opinions on why I posted three threads, but what I should buy with the system I bought

    Thank you. Especially for not commenting on how many threads I posted.

    Though the thing is that it's still about building your rig. I'll have to merge all these topics together because they're all related and don't need new threads...

    I just merged several of your threads all into this thread because you just spawn too many different threads.

    I left out the threads about your old HP Workstation.

    It's not a bad PSU, I had the 500W version before they started offering to replace the older 500W version with the OCZ ModXStream 500W which I have now because the old version of the StealthXStream lacked 2 PCIe power connectors while the ModXStream and the StealthXStream v2 does.

    That or he didn't buy it off NewEgg and bought it at another retailer? lol. Sometimes I know I post NewEgg links even though I bought it from a local retailer instead.

    Yeah I bought it in the box new unwrapped on ebay for $40 I know what Pill monster means now about getting a high quality PSU ;) the ratings were bad for a lot of PSUs on Newegg. Only some brands like OCZ, antec, or cooler master are good psus

    I bought the 600W, but I think OCZ has a 700w if I am not mistaken. But yes this one has two PCI-E I made sure so that when I put my graphics card in which requires 220W it will work without a molex to PCI-E. :D I am pretty excited for it to come in the mail. I also bought 8gb Corsair for $30

    You better hope that the 2 PCIE connectors are on different rails to each other..
    18 Amps per 12v rail..
    18 amps x 12v = 216w on a rail.
    GTX 275 is 219w = 18.25 Amp
    If the GTX 275 is fed off 1 rail and under load you might be pushing the rail to it's max.

    At least the Antec psu you pointed at on Newegg earlier only had 3 rails that were rated at 25 Amps each which allowed headroom for 2 x PCIE on one rail with your GTX 275.
