ditch the OCZ power supply and get a corsair 750 watt or better yet 850 watt / the rest of your spec is first class and so should be the power supply making it all run !!!!!

OCZ for the most part are of mediocre internal construction...........corsair is much better and seasonic is the king (seasonic X750 is the equal to your intel 2700K)

And XFX's PSUs are top quality as well :smile:

750w should be fine but if I were spending that much £ on a video card, I'd prefer an 850w.

A good quality 750w wouldn't blow it at all unless you got a defective unit, it's just preferable to not work your PSU very hard. It will degrade with time as well, so for a very expensive card like the 680 it's wise to leave the headroom.

Re: [SOLVED] Is this ok?

If you want 8GB of RAM, go with a 2x4GB matched pair to avoid any possible voltages issues.

Help cutting costs

Hi i recently asked here for help seeing if my pc spec is ok - http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f255/solved-is-this-ok-637731.html - it has ended up costing £1400 before building costs and im looking to try to drop this mabe to £1200. Can anyone suggest things that i can downgrade without having a noticeable affect on performance( other than 680). The Main 1 i can think of is 2500k from 2700k saving £80. Thanks

i5 CPU, one GPU, and possibly a little lower tier, 2x4GB of RAM and 1TB or less Hdd.

I am pretty sure the cpu will come with its own cooler?

I think a less expensive motherboard will not lower the performance as much as cpu, gpu, ram and HD would.

Getting a less expensive case, mouse and keyboard will not lower the performance. Pretty obvious but simple things to cut the price down.

A smaller hard drive will be less expensive. I don't think a gamer would ever use 2TB, even if you installed a large amount of games.

If those things don't suit you wishes, I think the next thing in line to down grade is the cpu.

Your computer is so good. lastly, getting a less expensive gpu will lower your fps rates, but they are already so high that I think if you need to save money, you could sacrifice for a lesser gpu.

let me know if you want me to make a shopping basket for you but it's your choice what you want to scale down on

Your links isn't complete so we can't see it. It is a better option to post the Brand Name & Model Number of any components.
Yes, drop the SSD. You save money and only sacrifice is faster boot time.
I listed several other ways to cut your cost without sacrificing any performance.
Dropping the SSD and the second GPU will cut the cost considerably.
