New Computer

Post by Zayron » Mon Feb 09, 2009 10:26 am

Looking at building a new computer within the next few months. I plan on running vista 64bit on it. Here is what I am looking at so far. I always hate ordering a ton of parts at ones because knowing my luck it will not fit in the case or something.

Case: COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower - $79.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811119137

Power Supply: COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power RP-550-PCAR 550W - $69.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817171016

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-MA78G-DS3HP - $85.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813128373

CPU: AMD Phenom 9750 2.4GHz Quad core - 149.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819103250

Memory: Two 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 - $44.99 + $44.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820231122

Video Card: GeForce 9800 GTX - $159.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814130339

Look good? I am hoping a 550W power supply will run everything. I could prob drop down to 4GB of ram and a smaller cpu and video card to make it cheaper.

looks good but i would rather have 2GB of DDR2 1066 than 4GB of DDR2 800. That mobo can support 1066 and I think cpu can too.

I would say screw the quad core and get a dual core with higher speed. Most the games still dont take full advantage of multiple cores, specially quad, so unless you multi-tasking a shit load then you will see better performance with higher CPU than cores.

Would have to switch out MB's

Right now I would stay with Intel, I used to be a big AMD fan too, just there stuff not as good as Intel lately.

Watch Slickdeals.net for a great deal on a video card, and possibly some of your other parts.

think first time im agreed with ravvok <3 :d "screw the quad core and get a dual core with higher speed. Most the games still dont take full advantage of multiple cores" that for real
Let every blow be a killing blow, grant us victory, or a warrior's death
Cleaving bodies left and right, a head falls with each swing of my blade
A storm of shafts screaming form yew-bows, carve a path with steel, a blood-drenched swath!
