Why run OS X? With 8Gb RAM I could run whatever program I wanted, on Windows ^.^ Plus AMD CPUs are much cheaper, and must importantly, unlocked (So they can be OC'd ) AMD mobos are cheaper as well
I did quite a lot of comparison between AMD CPUs of this price range, so this is pretty much the best you can get AMD-wise. The only Intel that got close was an i3 which was, if I recall correctly, even a bit slower.
@Asg16_4 There are these cool things, called HDD bays located on the front of the case, which allows you to slide HDD's in and out of the machine while its powered off.. I have a Zalman GS1000 if you're wondering [Clickety Click]
Btw, bmc, estimated wattage for your build by PCpartpicker is 336 Watts (says it above the Where list) An 80% (Just 80%, not bronze, gold, etc) 600Watt PSU (So 480 Watts FULLY stable) should be more than enough!
Thank you guys, sorry i wasnt around to see any of the birthday greetings though..
I was out all day at a theme park. we left at 7am and didnt come back until about 8pm. and then i went straight to bed coz id got a stinking migraine (was the only downside) other than that small issue i had a blast screaming like a little girl all day, and yes i really did scream like a little girl
