First Amd Build

Recommended Posts

Another build I'm thinking of doing. And I hope it works out.

Most likely I'm able to buy it in 3 weeks (December 3rd).

Please help me out, if it makes sense and is able to fit with the system.

And remember that this is going to be a gaming rig.

Under 1.1K.

This is probably around it, maybe i should think of another MOBO.

I will be able to buy the comp around December the 3rd.

So I will be gathering information on which Mobo Etc to choose.

 

Firstly Motherboard

MSI K9A2 PLATINUM AMD 790FX ATX Socket AM2 Phenom QC ~~

Another Mobo in Mind.

Asus CrossHair II.

Secondly Cpu

AMD Quad Core 9950 Phenom X4

Case

Apevia X-Cruiser or The Thermaltake V9

(Apevia pretty pricey. Just a bit. But the V9 still looks good)

CPU Cooler

Zalman CNPS9700 AM2

(Other decision?)

GFX

MSI Radeon HD 3870

(Have found a guy in my area, who is willing to sell it cheap)

Power Supply

Coolmaster 600W

Thank you to whomever helps

 

*Edit*

Alright lets just start of fresh.

Its either a intel or a AMD. I prefer using a AMD for some reason and would like to try it out.

 

MOBO:

Idea ATM.

Asus M3A79-T-Deluxe AM2+ 790FX HT5200 DDR2 PCIE2.0 RAID 2xVGA GbLAN 2x1394a ATX

CPU:

AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Black Edition AM2+ 2.5GHz 4MB Cache 125w Over - Clockable with fan

http://www.umart.com.au/newindex2.phtml?bid=2

 

GPU:

Asus EN9800GT 1G DDR3 PCIE2.0 2XDVI HDTV HDCP HDMI

RAM:

 

CPU COOL:

 

POWER SUPPLY:

You will get much better performance out of an intel quad core then one from AMD but depending on the games you will be playing it shouldn't really matter.

 

Is the GPU the 3870 x2 because otherwise i'd just pick up a new one from newegg (about $130)

Depending on the video cards you want to run (SLI or Crossfire in the future) I really like the Foxconn Destroyer and the ASUS Crosshair II. Also I would hold off to see what comes out near the end of the year and what prices drop because of it. I have both an Intel and and AMD test rig and even though FPS is lower on the AMD system a bit during game play it is hardly noticeable and I run 1920x1200 on an HD 4850 on med to high settings.

Wait and see what AMD's new 45nm have to offer.

If you do stick with AM2+ I'd go with a 790GX chipset instead (much better overclocking potential) that or a motherboard with a 790FX northbridge chipset and a 750SB chipset.

Here are some pretty decent boards:

Thank you for your advice.

I will go and see the MB that you guys are having in mind.

I've in mind the 3870 Not X2. Since it will go over my budget and I'm not sure if i have the intellegence to OC :D.

Mind telling me which MB to get?

Reason for?

 

You should get the crosshair2

 

Why because it's sexy....naw

 

But it has a bunch of overclocking tools in the bios under extreme tweaker

 

I was able to get my 4800+ to 3.4 with it which is almost a 1 gig overclock

 

Plus it comes with a free game

Yep thats the one it really is a great board

 

If you want you can just use the ai overclock and it will do it for you but doing it yourself is much better (you can get better clocks then it says you can have)
