Re: New Build - Rate? - Suggestions?
Just noticed something, the PII 940 is AM2+, meaning it only has a DDR2 memory controller, AM3 boards are DDR3. AM3 CPUs have both a DDR2 and DDR3 memory controller, and can be used in AM2+ boards, but not the other way around. Best AM3 CPU at the moment is the 720 X3 BE. A 3.2GHz 955 X4 is due soon.
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.
