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.

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.
