ok so I was havign all sorts of issues with a 3 year old Intel i7 2600k system I have been using. was getting random stabilty issues so I decided it was time to venture back and play with AMD again.

I used the following at what I think seems to be a well rounded and balanced system.

AMD FX8320 processor

AsRock 990FX Extreme 9 Mother Board

MSI R9 Gamer 280X

AMD gamer Series 1600 16GB ram

Cool Master V8 Cooler

Cool Master Haf 922 Mid Tower Case

Corsair AX 1200 power supply

the case , Cooler and power supply were re used from the Intel Build

Does this rig seem like a fairly balanced system?

Main specs:


AsRock 990FX Extreme 9, bios 1.5


AMD FX-8320


16 GB DDR3-1600 AMD Gamer Series


1x MSI R9 280X Gaming 3G


Corsair 1200 AX power Supply


OS is Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit

That should work just fine even though the PSU is considerably more than required.

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

Get a Corsair/Seasonic psu within 600-800w to save money.

I have 2 PSU here currently a PC power and cooling Silencer 750w and the Corsair AX1200. I do not worry about the effects on my light bill from the PC running none stop it is just something I have had running for ever. I just think you should do things right when you do them and the AX 1200 was very highly rated when I built my Intel system and I needed a ton of power because it was running 2 GTX 590 classifieds. I discovered alot of issues with the 590s in Sli with alot of games most could not address the 4 graphic cores so there was not alot of use having that much graphics power.

Run whatever makes you happy. My point was not that you should buy a different PSU. The point was the 1200w PSU is a lot more than you need, that's all. The PCPC 750w might be enough, but it could be borderline.

I have to give her a few weeks to cool off about the inital build. We are in the process of purchasing a new home and she had a cow when I dropped over a grand on the components I bought last week. I will be throwing another 280x in there pretty soon if I can slip the funds out of the bank

The 280X is plenty fine for a 1920x1200 display, don't get in a rush to buy a second, though being a MSI you might have to RMA it sooner than you think.
