I'm about to embark on my first system build. It's a bit of a minefield, but, I've done a bit of research and I think I've come up with the system that won't break my budget.
For starters, the case I'm interested in is an Ezcool MJ-705 mATX, which comes with its own 500w power supply. The graphics card I plan to get is the Asus AMD Radeon 7770 2gb and the processor will be an AMD FX6300. The motherboard will be the Asus M5A78L-M and I plan to use 16gb of Corsair RAM, a Western Digital 2tb hard drive and a Samsung DVD writer. Monitor-wise I've pretty much settled on the Philips/Asus 196V4LAB2 18.5".
Will a 500w PSU be man enough to handle that little lot!? I've seen deals for the case which include higher powered PSU's, but, the brand is Alpine and I've not read many good things where they're concerned.
My budget is somewhat tight as is my space and other cases seem too large and pricey and don't come with PSU's which is an added expense I could well do without.
What do you guys advise!?
