Hey everyone. Looking for a computer which will play modern games on high settings, and age well. Eying the 3 free games and mousepad deal with this GPU, and trying to make a build around it!

I'm slightly concerned about how much Wattage to i need in PSU for this (a few reviews warned that the graphics card sucks up a lot) Any feedback is welcome, I'm a newbie!

I would just go with a 80+ gold power supply. Other than that, the psu is fine if you don't crossfire

The only concern I would have with the power supply is that the manufacturer recommends a minimum of 750W for that particular GPU.

They over-estimate for cheap PSUs. 600W of good PSU is fine, though that CX is average, performs well enough but cheap Capxon capacitors. Costs $15 more, much better.

i5 4440 is the same price as 4430, 100MHz for free.

Hi, I should explain myself since you mentioned this on the last post as well. I'm selecting the 4430 because it is available for the 180 price on amazon, which gives me free shipping. I want to make sure it's compatible with everything. (I'm in Hawaii, and unfortunately Newegg and most of the other sites have higher shipping prices, which bump the price up). If you know of any of the other sites that have free shipping to Hawaii, I'd be ecstatic.

Thanks for the input!
