Hi all, So, i've been contemplating building my own rig for a while now, and am finally getting my arse into gear about it! I'm not looking at anything expensive, or high-end (i5 / i7 builds), just a nice quad-core rig with tasteful power, potential for overclocking, and long-term fun really. Just as a forenote: I live in the UK, so i deal in £'s not $'s, and as such am excluded from purchases on everyone's favorite website NewEgg AFAIK. So far then, this is how the list looks: CPU: AMD FX-4170 BE Mobo: ASRock Extreme 3 970 GPU: Radeon 7850? PSU: Corsair CX500M RAM: [Unsure] Case: Antec One (or better in the £40 - £50 range) HDD: Seagate or WD 1TB 7,200rpm So, there are a number of variables in the mix at the moment, however, i've got a few pressing questions for you all really, one of them being: Question 1: With a Case such as the Antec One which only comes with 2 Exhaust Fans, will i need a Fan Controller on the front I/O to install the remaining 2 or 3? Should i look for extra connections on a motherboard for more fans to be compatible with these cases? Best Answer to 1: Question 2: Are there any recommended power supplies out there for my sort-of build? I've been looking between the OCZ ModXStream 600w and ZS550w, but sadly OCZ's reviews are highly mixed, and i'm just losing my confidence in my ability to choose & designate which one to definitely go for? Suggestions perhaps? (1 for the 7770 Vapor X, 1 for the 7850 of unknown brand) Best Answer to Question 2: Question 3: Motherboards! Motherboards everywhere! - I'm currently reading in here and elsewhere about the ASRock 970 EXTREME3 being a fairly good mobo for the money for that 4170 BE, and currently the best deal i've found is £70.68 for it, but out of curiosity, could i do better for that kind of money? I'd really rather not step up the money TOO much more as the budget is looking at about £550 max atm. I know that as i think about this more, i'm going to have lots more questions, so please keep an eye on this first post as i'll just edit it each time a question is answered fully and put said answer in quotes Thanks people!
