    Poor power supply choice!
    The corsair CX & CS series power supplies, are not ideal for overclocking, especially ur 500w choice. You should opt for a higher tier power supply that will be more reliable and also be a much better investment for the future.
    I would go with something like this. The XFX XTR series are fantastic units with excellent quality parts. Its also fully modular so you can have great cable management and is 80+ Gold certified! I believe its a Seasonic re-brand like most XFX units, which is amazing as Seasonic are one of the best when it comes to power supplies.
    Other good units include: Antec High Current Pro, XFX XXX/XTR etc.
    PM if you need more info

    I updated my build and I'm thinking of the corsair 750w semi modular

    Lmao sure, post your parts or you're lying.

    It's obviously better to have a newer operating system because it will be updated for longer

    You're acting like building a good PC is hard to do. I'm pretty sure most if not everyone in these PC threads have great PCs. YOU'RE the one asking US for advice, novice. You're the one with the *****y PSU who literally asked if the Hyper 212 of all things is good for overclocking. And the above quote about Windows 10, that's brilliant.

    If you're interested in my build, look it up, but I know you're not. You'll say I'm lying anyway, like it matters.

    I, just like a few other people in this thread, would not recommend going with a Corsair CX/CS series power supply. Go for something high quality with at least an 80+ Gold rating like one from Seasonic or Super Flower, or made by them like one from Corsair's AX series or EVGA's SuperNova G2s.
    You should also give yourself the ability to overclock. Even if you don't plan on overclocking right now, how do you know that won't be the case in 2-3 years? Considering how little you'll be saving you're best off sticking with a -K processor.

    And how urgently do need this PC? Or need to be able to game on this PC? AMD's Polaris and Nvidia's Pascal graphics cards will be coming out later this year, might be worth waiting?

    Edit: Just took another look at your parts list, a CD/DVD writer? What year is this? 2005? Get yourself an external one. Also get yourself a Fractal Design Define S over the Corsair 200R, better watercooling support and a better case in general. And don't get an MSI motherboard, get one from Asus. MSI boards have mediocre fan control and Killer NICs instead of good ol' Intel NICs.

    Then take the R9 390 off of your list, because by the time you get to building this PC a newer, likely better graphics card in this tier will have been released.

    An external CD/DVD writer, like this one:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Patuoxun-Por...rnal+dvd+drive
    Unless you're one those people who still use CDs and DVDs on a regular basis, you'll be best off getting one these, rather than an internal writer which will use up a SATA port and mostly just be a waste of space.

    Ok thanks for the advice, I'll see if the new GPU's are worth it for the price when they come out and I'll get an external DVD /CD drive

    What kind of moron thinks anyone over the age of 10 thinks pro wrestling is real? You don't even know how to quote properly or build a good computer, so maybe that answers the question. :lol:

    Not that this reply was in discernible English, but let's take a moment to consider you're now banging on about wrestling in a PC gaming thread, because you're attacking someone who gave friendly advice when you asked for it. Incredible.

    Ok honestly you should get the Intel HD 530 card and if you can, get an i7 3520m, you'll be able to play the latest games on highest settings.

    Even a GTX 980TI can't play the latest games on the highest settings at a steady 60 FPS (I should know, I've just bought one). You'd certainly get absolute constant 30 FPS though at probably any other resolution than 4K

    Ok, spoil the joke why don't ya?

    The 980 TI is the most powerful card around right now. Far less powerful cards can play games at ultra settings at 1080 x 1920. Don't know about FPS, but it'll be more than 30.
