every thing is ok , but can you take p45/35/43 instead of g41 just because pci-e 2.0


when 3.0 come out in 2-4 years i think pci-e will bottle neck the card ..

good luck



but how about going with amd ,..?this way you will get much better pc


same ram

but cpu : phenom ii x 2 550 / x3 710-720 / x 4 920

mb : gigabyte 770-ud3p , 785-ud3h

and with the money you will save you can get 9800gt instead ..


what say you ..?

I'd say chuck Intel, go AMD.. You should be able to get better performance from an AMD build!!


Also Intel-made mobos are good for nothing more than stock performance, go for something like ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte or EVGA...


I don't think PCIe1.0 would bottleneck something like 9600GT..


BTW where are you from? It would help if you could direct us to some online store in your place..

Also, I can't understand the first sentence.. Are you used to building high-end PCs or not?

i say AMD is best



phenom ii x2 550

gigabyte 770-ud3p

ddr2 ram


every thing else still the same ram get 2 gigs or more 800mhz


this is much more powerful than intel or

if you can squeeze your self get x3 710 that is faster than 550

550 is very fast it beats the intel you wrote and if you are lucky enough you can unlock the other two core but i do not recommend this

since it may get unstable ...


as for your question about the p45/35 yes there is a difference in performance between them and g41 p43 i think not


and about the bottle neck , when the new pci-e 3.0 come out , and pci-e 3.0 cards come out


pci-e 3.0 cards can be bottle necked by the 1.0 so 2.0 is better in that case but with your card 9600/9800 you will not notice any difference at all

i said that just to let you know when you want to get a new pci=e 3.0 card it will not show it`s muscle with 1.0


good luck ..................:)

Yea but the 770 board is quite abit more.

it is better than the board you wrote , and i think i read some where that AM2 can not take AM3 cpu unlike AM2+ ..

i think it is worth buying , the board you wrote is a waste ...;)
