Gaming Build - AMD -

Hi,

 

A first time poster but I been reading around for a week or so and I keep getting better at this 

 

Am building a PC for gaming mainly and few hours of graphic designing – if I get time to learn that one – and of course web browsing, research writings, etc...

 

Wanting the Pc to last long enough before it needs any upgrades (2, 3 years)

 

Tried to look up on the internet and I was amazed with all the new, I always thought I had "general info on PCs " now I realized that my knowledge had been outdated by at least 200 years .

 

But then again am studying in dentistry school and the last PC I built was P4 six years ago –give or take few months!

 

Been using laptops since I entered college but am getting annoyed with small screens !

Decided I'll build it on my own

 

now, apparently brewing cats In a garden is much easier than trying to build a PC without consulting experts like this community these days .

Took my time reading the reviews , looked around here and there and came up with this build, did my best narrowing down the list to mostly 2 choices of each component.

 

Sorry for this wall of txt here I go!

 

 

Case: I'll look for one with good cooling no worries on this one

 

HDD: Western Digital 500 GB, speed 7200

 

Power Supply: 750 W

 

CPU : either 1. AMD Phenom II X4 945

2. AMD Phenom II x4 955 (I'll try finding the BE one)

 

.Motherboard: .Asus Crosshair III Formula

.Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P

 

Graphic Card : : 1. Nvidia GTX 275

2. ATI Radeon HD 4890

Both very close to each others in performance gave myself the option in case any of them would perform better with any of the listed\suggested Motherboards.

 

RAMS : was going with the DDR3 but, I read somewhere that it doesn’t do well the the Phenom II ?-memory reading issues-

So am guessing 2x2GB DDR2 1333 \ 1600 ?

 

Monitor: here's my Problem now  I want to play the games at a high resolution ,and hate to get an LCD that doesn’t support highest resolution the GPU can offer me

Can I get help in what to look for while buying one?

21 LCD – already know the 120 refresh rate and HDMI and that’s about it what else should I be looking for in a monitor

 

That covers it all I guess – any DVD-Rom and my G9\G15 Combo am Super-!

 

thank you in advance and Apologies for the too many options listing :)

 

regards ,

Loai.

FarCry , Crysis for FPS and WoW !

resultions minimum would be 1280x1024

may play some FPS on 1920x1200 who knows

i say both will be great with these res , but i think gtx 275 will beat 4890 in fc2 and if you played at 2560*1600 or what ever higher than 1920*1200 as well , ...

but if you could get gtx 275 it would be better for the heat issue ..you know ati cards are hotter that nvidia`s

but if you want to go with 4890 i say a none stock cooler ..since i joined this forum i said this word over 100 times :lol:

go with sapphire toxic / vapor-x / atomic

The only advantage an HD4890 has over the GTX275 is the price; if the HD4890 is cheaper than the GTX275 in your area, be sure to pick it up

 

i'll check prices today and see

Look for a 955. even if you dont plan on overclocking, its nice to have the feature and possibilities of a black edition cpu

The listed motherboards are DDR3 only. And those are ddr3 speeds not ddr2 fyi ;)

And there really aren't any issues with DDR3 an phenom II's in fact AM3 chipsets are made to run with ddr3.

 

boh , shouldnt have checked the net for whats BEST should have checked my local stores first :O

today is friday it's like sunday over the US only few stores open

 

found the 955BE going for around 450$

940BE going for around 300$

 

graphic cards , couldnt find any ATI i'll look again 2morrow when everyone is opened , i did however find a Sparkle GTX275 for 450$ as well,,,

 

Motherboards : DDR3 only means i can't place the lesser DDR2 on it ?:O that's a shame :( i'll look for them and go with either - which one is better ?-

 

another question does the BE AMD requires a CPU cooler or it's fine with it's own Cooler ?
