Building my own system! Tags: Products Product Last response: June 15, 2009 4:58 PM in Opinions and Experiences Share Rotting Knife June 8, 2009 4:19:41 AM I'm building a new system. I'm fairly into gaming my only problem is at the moment my computer can't run any good games very well. Or any newer games, I've already ordered my cpu its a Phenom II x4 940 Black Edition 3ghz. I was wondering if people would suggest different parts for the rest, Preferably the same price range... Mobo: Gigabyte GA-M85M-US2H mATX Motherboard Memory: Team Dark 4GB PC8500 DDR2 1066 RAM Kit (2x2GB) Gfx Card: Sapphire HD4850 1G DDR3 PCIe Case: Thermaltake V9 Midi Tower PSU: Corsair TX-650 Modular Power Supply I currently run my screens at 1152x864 but am looking to get a widescreen later down the track.

PSU: perfect choice. overall a good a build just change the motherboard unless you are building a micro system don't get a micro board it will only limit what you can do with the computer m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
