Drop the arctic silver 5 and go with some MX-2 or TX-2

Do you have an Operating System?


Everything else looks perfect, when will you order it?

Are you ordering this from Newegg? I assume so as all the parts I entered in the search bar were found.

I added all the components up and it came to ~$620.

The burner is out of stock... again

I would go with the HD 4850 over the GTS 250. The two are identical in performance but the HD 4850 is cheaper and your motherboard supports Crossfire which will offer a good upgrade path in the future.
EDIT: Sapphire's has a $15 off promo code bringing it down to $95.
RE-EDIT: Or MSI's comes with Rainbow 6 Vegas 2
I'd also go with some 1066 memory, it's only a few $ more and will go better with a Phenom.

TBH, the 6400 has had it's day. It is (was) produced on the 90nm process and gobbles way too much power for the performance it offers, even it's price isn't very appealing any more. You'd much prefer the Phenom II X2 550, it is a 45nm part running at 3.1GHz and is a fair bit faster than the 6400+ for less.

And +1 to the MX-2.

Yes, the Phenom II X2 is backwards compatible with socket AM2+ motherboards. The DDR2 1066 more closely matches the speed and bandwidth offered by the CPU.

It will work with the memory but its not on the CPU support list on the ASRock Website. But that might be just because that chip is new. LINK to the ASRock CPU support list

Default Re: now its time for MY build

I would try to contact ASrock to see if they do support it since they might have not updated that list yet listing it as supported. I really don't know why it wouldn't be supported since it says it support the AM3 up to 140w and it supports all the other AM3 CPU's but if it was me I would just get in touch with them to be sure.
