Forums - PC Discussion - Begin Building first PC

First off i want to give a huge thanks to everyone who reccomended I build my own pc. I got somthing alot better in quality for the same price. I looked up and watched alot of building videos on youtube, will be reading through the mother boards manual to understand it better. Any suggestions how to reduce static shock? I also noticed that my power supply is 50 watts short of the GPU's requirments so i will need to return and upgrade it would hate to damage the gpu.

If I get stuck or have questions I will post them here.

the rig is..

amd fx-6300 cpu
8 gig ddr3
Radeon 7850 HD 2gig ddr5
78lmt-usb3 motherboard
450 watt antec powersupply
300 mbps wi fi
1 terabite of hard drive.
A standard case

for $650

PS is ok unless you want to add a second graphics card

Nice build. Very similar to my own, with the exception that I bought a 240gb SSD, a 7870 gpu, and I got an 850 watt power supply (For upgrading purposes).

Money can't buy happiness. Just video games, which make me happy.

Yeah the power supply for the 7850 should be enough..

Everything is looking good. If you ever plan to CrossFire that 7850, up the PSU a bit. Other than that, for that amount, well done!

The 7850 in a total system doesnt use more then 289 watts when on Load power consumption

for 20 bucks more then what my Power supply is worth I could get a 650 watt.

yea if I ever added a 2nd graphics card a new psu would be handy!

Looking good buddy, I would just recommend at least a 650w PSU, so that you can overclock your cpu, gpu and also won't have to worry about upgrading to a more power hungry gpu in the future as well. Have you got a anti static wrist band? they go for like £5 on amazon. Have you decided on which brand 7850 you'll be getting?  I personally recommend MSI, but sapphire, xfx etc are pretty good as well. Don't go for stock cooler design though otherwise it'll be noisy and hot. 

Let us know how it goes :)



Intel core i7 930 OC @ 4.0 ghz

XFX Double dissipation Radeon HD 7950 356 bit 3gb GDDR5 OC @ 1150 MHz core + 1575 x 4 memory

Triple channel DDR 3 12gb RAM 1600 MHz

Also dont forget!! You should get 2 free games with your 7850, participating retailers ONLY.

Scroll down to check first, if you buy from the wrong retailer you'll miss out on it. I mentioned it in other thread but just to remind you, scan.co.uk has component insurance for 5 handy if you aren't too confident handling your first assembly :)

All I did was hold the case occasionally to get rid of any static build up. My brother did the same, so you should be fine without a static wrist band. They're cheap though, so buy one if it's convenient for you to get one.

How much did you get your 7850 for? I've been thinking about upgrading my 7770 to a 7850 or 7870, but I may just go with the 7970 next Summer.
