  1. Honestly I'd go with the 955 or 965 over the 4130. The true quad core performance of the Phenom II's beats out the FX 4xxx series chips and especially beats the bulldozer arch.

    Thats just my opinion!

    Hi,
    The PSU could be a bit weaker. You could easily get away with a 500W Corsair for that build and save money.
    The budget RAM you should probably aim for is a Kingston 1600 Hyper X blu. There isnt much point in buying "gaming" RAM, you will get better performance spending the extra money on a better graphics card.

    after calculating it at extremepowercalc, the data amount of watts i would need is around 530watts, forgot to add in the build that a 1tb 7200rpm HDD, and a dvd writer ODD. thinking of adding another 1-2tb hdd in the future, the gskill ram is just around $1 more expensive than the kingston ones, would 2gb or 4gb be enough for a x64 windows 7?

    This system will likely not consume more than 300 watts under full load.

    Also, I'd recommend the 6300 for an additional 10 any day. It's MUCH better.
  6. Get 8 gigs it makes a huge difference in win 7 x64. it is better to get 1666 RAM.
    6300 is the way to go. Maybe get a 550 Corsair to save money and add it on the CPU.
  7. would this suffice? and in the future when i upgrade his computer woud it still be enough? http://www.corsair.com/us/power-supply-units/vs-series-power-supply-units/vs-seriestm-vs550-550-watt-power-supply.html

    lets say he is then able to save up and buy a 7850 class gpu in the future, would the powersupply be enough? thanks!
  8. Den,

    Yes that Corsair 550 will run even a 7850 nicely.
