New System Build

Recommended Posts

I am Wanting to build a new system and would like some advice on components that will be compatible with each other.

I already have a Coolermaster Stacker.

and an Opteron 144 939 cpu.


I am thinking of buying the DFI expert......good choice ?


I am also thinking of buying G.Skill HZ 2gb kit.....Or maybe the mushkin red line...any opinions on any of them?


Also I would like a suitable PSU with enough power to run a X1900XT......thinking of perhaps

700W or the 600W FSP Epsilon..........600w Seasonic S12-600.........660W Enermax EPS12V EG851AX-VH....or the 600W Enermax Noisetaker.

Opinions please.


And heat sink and fan suitible for that board.


Thanks in advance.

I would go with the G.Skill Ram (Samsung UCCC). The Redline´s are Infineon chips (maybe I´m wrong but don´t think so...), they oc nicely but have problems with stability in 3D usage (gaming).

The x1900xt (or xtx :drool: ) is a nice card!

OCZ PowerStream 520 is an excellent choice too, it will give you all the power you need; but not really silent (ok, I´ m on water).
