Is this ok?


Recommended Posts

So Im ordering some new parts, but before I order I wanna check with yall :)

 

What I already have and will be keeping is:

 

Antec 900 case (btw does anyone know if this support micro atx)

ATI hd 4850 PCI-E video card

SATA harddrive

IDE cd/dvd drive

 

CPU:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103650

AMD Phenom II X4 810 2.6GHz 4 x 512KB

 

Motherboard:

RAM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820148194

(Crucial 2x1gb)

 

Are these ok? I dont want the most expensive setup, I just play alot of games and this seemed like a well priced alternative.

 

btw is the Phenom 810 ok? I know it's not as good as the Phenom 940's but newegg didnt list the 810's core. so I wasn't sure if it had a bad core or something?

 

edit 2: Btw also is there any negative to buying a Dedicated AM3 board if Im putting in an Am3 processor in it?

 

thx!!

Antec 900 should support mATX... i dont see why it wouldn't...

 

All Athlon II and Phenom II processors are basically derived off the the same Deneb core.

Athlon IIs just have no L3 cache.

X2's and X3's are just X4's with respective number of cores disabled.

 

the Phenom II X4 810 you're looking at is essentially just a PII X4 945 core with 2MB L3 cache disabled (due to either faultiness or purposefully disabled to provide that model)

 

Using an AM3 socket is fine, and in most cases I believe it does provide significant performance boost over using an AM2+ board.

 

Also, will you be using a 32bit OS? Just asking because i noticed you're only buying a 2x1GB mem kit...

and even if you are you might want to look at a 4GB kit, you'll still have more RAM for the system, and if you go x64 in the future, you'll already have 4gb to use B:)

 

EDIT: changed 955 to 945 cause the 945 was released before the 955

720 is only 3 cores tho correct.?

 

Regardless my budget is 250.

this seemed to fit the best

 

and I want a Quad Core, and it HAS to be a new socket.

yes it has 3 core but you can get lucky and unlock the fourth core , and 720 out performs 810 , i suggested it since it is better and faster

 

is not 720 cheaper than 810 ..? :huh:

definatly go with the phenomII 720.. a am3 board with ddr3 ram will get u the overal best performance and i would personally get a 4 gig set of gskill.. also good to see another kentuckian on the forums!

I dont see why a 3 core is better than a 4 core?

can someone explain

 

anyways I thought the 3 core Phenoms werent that good? or they stopped making them or something

 

 

btw it says 45 nm SOI for the manufacturing process for the 720. what does SOI mean? is it not like the 45nm all the other cpu's have?
