You realize that both CPUs are of different sockets. So you want two motherboards for $110?

so you wanna spend 110$ for the intel build & the AMD build?
or you wanna choose between AMD or intel?
or you want 2 mobos for a total of 110$?

Is that $110 in USD, CAD, or AUD?

Take a wild guess.

Second one is a Micro ATX.

P.S.: it's three letters. If you can't afford to type it out, I'm not going to bother taking a wild guess.

those are good too.but ASrock's mobos look flashy and i hear they OC fairly well.it all depends on you though.and by the way are you overclocking your CPU's and are you really gonna use 2 builds or is it for a friend??


My friend is getting one as well and I thought, eh why not ask two question in a thread.

Might wanna overclock it to 4.0 GHz but no further. (As for my friends FX, he'll OC for sure).

My main question is if I can plug in all the stuff I want in the motherboard. SSD, Harddrive, RAM, graphics card (Anything I'm missing that I should get?)

yeah you should be able to 'plug in' all those stuff. but what's your PSU?your gonna need a well branded PSU [e.g: antec corsair seasonic etc] and which card are you gonna get. id recommend atleast a geforce GTX 660 if your gonna do some serious gaming.and also if you are gonna OC to 4Ghz. i would recommend using an after market CPU cooler and a well ventilated Case.

I'm thinking of usin the 7870 XT w/Boost which, when overclocked, is just as good or even better than the 7950 at stock. Might get the 760 ti, I'm not quite sure yet (Going to be cheaper than the current 660 ti and one hell of a card for its price).

As for the PSU, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Might have to judge me on that since I'm not familiar with PSU's.

Might buy another case later and wait on overclocking since I'm on a budget.

It's Corsair's low-end PSU. Corsair made the CX series with the intention of creating a good budget, yet good, PSU for basic systems so they don't have to pay a premium of a high powered PSU when they don't need performance. But you have a gaming rig which is high performance, so I don't recommend the CX models. However, the 750W CX is more than enough to power your system and the HD 7870 XT. It will be fine for CrossFireX HD 7870 XT as well.

Some quality PSU to look at are: Antec EarthWatts, Antec High Current Gamer, Antec VP, Cooler Master Silent Pro, Corsair TX/HX/AX, Enermax Platimax, Lepa G, NZXT Hale90, PC Power & Cooling (all), Rosewill Capstone, Rosewill Hive, Seasonic (all), Silverstone Strider Gold, Silverstone Strider Plus, Super Flower (all), Thermaltake Toughpower, XFX (all).

Oh thanks. Can you link me a good one that's not too much since I'm on a budget.

Will I need a good case when I'm not OC'ing?

1. You still haven't told me what country you live in so it's hard to provide links. You can link me to stores you shop at if you don't want to disclose that information.

2. A case with good airflow can't hurt.

Mine is a 100W more. I'll trust the XFX one more just because the OEM for the Corsair TX 650W one that thasan1 posted is Channel Well vs XFX's OEM Seasonic.

how about this PSU? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i hear theyr quite reliable. though pricey too. if you cant use this go with your CX 750




http://us.ncix.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&s...

That one is much cheaper, $75 after rebate :)  Is it better than the one one thasan1 listed?


yeah it looks good. isn't it kinda getting way too overkill for this build? are you gonna corssfire your GPU later on. then the 750w might come in handy.

I'm pretty sure I won't crossfire it. Would be handy to get one that can handle crossfiring because it's already cheaper. An overkill can't be bad right?
