Default Re: Is this a good build?

First of all, the processor and mobo are not compatible, you have a mobo built for the Intel i7's.

(I don't know if it is just me, but your links don't work)

if you want that processor, might I suggest this mobo: Motherboard. It seems to have good reviews.

Also, you can get that processor for cheaper on newegg: AMD II x6

For the Graphics card, I would suggest that you go with ATI: MSI HD 5770

Or if you REALLY want that card, try: EVGA GTX 465

If you can manage to come down from 1.5TB to 1TB, this drive would be better: WD 1TB

Or, if you want to try to save a bit of money, go with a combo deal on Newegg: Combo

And, as far as cases go, it really depends if you want a full case or a mid case. If full, I would suggest the Antec 1200, like I have...great airflow, wire management, and just looks pretty cool. Antec 1200

And might I ask what kind of RAM you have?

All that together, the mobo, processor, case, GTX 465, WD HDD is about $815.95. What do you have as a budget?

My budget is under $1000, anything over, i may as well buy a new PC but i don't want to do that unless it's worst case.

I think those are fantastic suggestions. As for the combo, unless i'm blind, i can't find which GFX card is in it.

As for the RAM, i don't know. Where would it tell me?

Default Re: Is this a good build?

what about a PSU(power supply)? and you say you got ram, whats the name/specs. so i can see if it works with an AM3 board. cause an AMD CPU cant/want work in an intel mobo. whats your budget so i can point you in the right way.

yes, that combo is missing a graphics card, you would have to buy that separate. However, usually you save a bit off the other components if you buy in a combo like that. But I usually like to part my own out .

And where did you get the RAM? how many GBs is it? and it should say the brand/type(DDR, DDR2, DDR3) on it.

Thanks AMD, knew I forgot something! I personally Like Corsair PSUs, and you might wanna try this one: PSU

Which mobo you suggest?

You will have to link to the products.

I am indeed Canadian!


Also, everyone please bare with me. I understand everything you guys talk about with computer components, but you guys are just far more advanced in the area than myself, so i would tend to trust you guys on where to look.
