After two weeks of waiting, I decided to give up my old plan to build a socket 939 rig. Instead, since the AM2 parts are out now, I got the new list of my parts for AM2, mainly for gaming. Please give me some cents on the compatibility and power issues. Thanks a mil!
1.Will there be anything that is not compatible?
2.Which graphics card should I buy in order to pay less money and play all the games with max in all settings at only 1280*1024/75Hz (my TFT) without frame issues? Is the Club 3D 7900GTX stock speed good enough? it is only 496 Euro
3. Someone told me for this rig, I need at least 550W PSU, is it true?
Yes paying money for the factory OC is rip off and you can just set the Club 3D one to the same settings with a manual overclock :wink:.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ 2.4GHz Socket AM2 1MB, BOXED w/fan - this processor doesn't exist the 4600+ has a 512KB cache not 1MB. The X2 4800+ is the 1MB version which one did you mean, anyway either should be good!
As for the power supply never heard of either brand there. I would go for a good brand name like antec true power 2 or a seasonic S12 both are excellent.
I would say any power supply above 500W is enough and will allow you to add extra componets; high end graphics card usually eat up a lot of power but the 7900 series have smaller chips and less circuits so eat less power.
I would go for the OCZ if you can ge a hold of it very good RAM.
I don't know anything about that motherboard seen a few pictures of it and it looks nice.
Hope this helps the rest of your system looks nice!
I was looking at something similar myself but gonna wait for conroe and see whats what.
