Default Re: A few little problems

What GPU are you going to be using?

For the mobo, a P45 board if you can find on within your budget. If not, a P35 would be fine, something like the ASUS P5K.
AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.
