If you choose either of those cards a 650W PSU would be more than sufficient (Something like a BeQuiet P9 650W or the AX 650).

As for a case, it's really up to you which one you go for. The 600t is a very good looking case and cooling wise it is pretty good as well.

Most here would recommend the Crucial M4 as it is known to be one of the, if not the most reliable SSD out right now. Intel, Kingston, Samsung and Corsair have very good SSD's as well though. For the Hard-drive I would recommend the WD Caviar Black. It really is quite quick for a mechanical drive and it is not noisy at all. What will you be doing with 2 240GB drives? Are you thinking Raid 0? If you are, it is not really recommended as you lose some essential features. If you just want to use one for OS and one for programs/games than that is fine
Hmm alrighty as for gpu im more of a fan of geforce's so.. think i might go with 670, how about 680 though how is that?


For the case does the 600t perform well, has good cooling options?
I saw a vid that it has quite nice cable management so thats another +

So for SSD you recommend me a crusial m4? Hmm.. last time i checked it had a low write speed or read (1 of the 2 was 200ish) and the one i had selected has both of those 500+, not to mention it has 85k IOPS, i dont know about crusial. And yes i use the ssd for my os so everything is faster, faster boots and stuff, will also store games on it so that speeds up a bit too. HDD will be more for my movies and music and stuff. About that raid 0 i'm not sure what your talking about there, then again im pretty new to this so forgive me!
And why 2x 240? its cheaper than a 480 and the 480gb has 50ish K IOPS so i figure why not go 240x2 with higher iops and its even cheaper!

anyways thank you all for the quick responses!

EDIT: Ah damnit it.. About hdd so you recommend me WD caviar black hmm.. alright but does it have low failure rates? Is it fast with low sound? I read some good things about samsung spinpoint f4 too.

Although as he will have an ssd for boot IMO there is no point in a Black drive and to save money he should go for a Blue or Green and then with the money saved there is money for an aftermarket cooled card

As for the Crucial M4...
The listed write speeds are the max speeds at 1024k data rates. Windows only actually can work with 4k and 8k data - at which the Crucial is actually one of the fastest SSDs there is. Either get the M4, Samsung 830 or Intel 520 - cant go wrong with any, so whatever is the cheapest or on offer

Stick with the 670, don't bother with the 680.

The 600t is a very popular case and if you find that the cooling is not up to par, you can always change the fans.

He has £2400, so he doesn't really need to save a bit of money by going for a green drive. The difference is not massive in terms of price tbh.

Hmm ok... so you suggest a gigabyte windforce gtx 670
just out of curiousoty how much better is the 680 vs the 670?
since everyone is recommending me 670 there should be something bad about 680 then. also 2gb or 4gb?

Nothing bad about the 680 - just everything good about the 670
The 680 is about 5% better at the most, and so it isnt really worth spending the extra money.
And 2gb - the 4gb version only helps when using silly numbers of screens

In windows tasks - it's slower than the M4.
And the M4 is the most reliable SSD on the planet

You just don't wanna be using a sand-force drive mate, they are terrible. Please get the samsung 830 or m4.

Greens will be quieter if not near silent, but there is a performance difference between the green and black. WD are the best hdds for reliability.
