Need feedback before I buy...

Recommended Posts

heck even the price reasonable Pi's aren't worth it. Just get a standard set of 1066mhz 5-5-5-15 Gskills that have the regular heatsinks, they are the same as the Pi's and you'll save money.

ah, I completely forgot about those. Mine are the regular Pi ones with the gray heatsinks, and I forgot that the blue/green heatsink ones were the same.

wait, why are you playing $800 and not getting an i7 rig?

because he doesn't need it. can you get a really nice i7 rig for 800? 300 for the CPU and 300 for the MB and 150 for the RAM with i7, vs 300 for CPU, 70 for MB, and 60 for RAM with C2Q.

I don't really see how you can do it for 800.

not to mention how great a computer a phenom II makes for the $$

So it did not go as plan...

 

I have a budget of $600 (after 9.25 tax) for mobo, cpu & cooler, ram, video card... For heavy gaming, video encoding. Overclock to it's top!!!

 

You do you think of this set up?

Can anyone come up with a better bang for my buck?

 

Thanks again

For that budget, I'd look into AMD at this point. The Phenom II should be better than the Q6600, plus all of the parts are cheaper. You can get a faster processor, and a better graphics card for about the same price. Look to the Phenom II 940 and overclock it.

ya, that's the motherboard I'd buy with a Phenom 940 (though my Phenom 940 has a Gigabyte board, but only because it was a must have combo deal). That's my favorite 790GX board for the money!
