In need of some reccomendations for a gaming rig

RE: In need of some reccomendations for a gaming rig
We just found a deal for the i7 2600 for $200. Would a 500W PSU still be enough to power this CPU? And would the Corsair A50 still be good for this CPU? Thanks.

Yeah, both would be fine with the i7-2600.

Where did you find your deal by the way, I'm curious Big Grin

I found it Here on slickdeals.net It's a B&M for Microcenter, and I was lucky enough to have one near me. I also picked up an i5 2500k for $150 during black friday.

Only downside is you have to print out the coupon and bring it in, and there's tax for me (California). But I still think the price is more than fair.

And as for power supplies, I've narrowed down a few in our price budget:

Raidmax Hybrid 630W
Thermaltake TR2 500W
OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W Modular
OCZ Fatal1ty 550W Modular
OCZ ZS Series 550W 80PLUS
Corsair Builder Series CX V2 500-Watt 80 Plus Certified

Out of these, or any that you can find (preferably with Amazon Prime), which would you recommend? Thanks! =)

The only power supply I would even touch is the ZS or ModXStream.

Thanks, I guess I'll go with the Modstream Pro. Thanks.
