Look my build over please Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: September 5, 2008 10:01 PM in Systems Share neowart September 5, 2008 4:56:49 PM Ok guys I am a poor college student and I would just like for y'all to help me make sure everything is good to go in my build. E8400 CPU PC Power and Cooling 500w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Mushkin DDR2 800 2gigs ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Asus Radeon 4850 also have HD with cd drive I am at $535 and I would like to keep it as far under $700 as possible. I need some help with a motherboard. I just can't decide what I need. No plans for SLI or crossfire but I do plan to overclock eventually. At that time I will order a better heatsink and fan. Thanks More about : build Onus September 5, 2008 5:55:09 PM Mushkin is my preferred brand for a number of reasons, but you'll want to get a 2-stick set so you can run in dual-channel mode. If 2GB is enough, this set is $38.50 after MIR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If you decide you want 4GB, this set is just $60 after MIR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... You've chosen a good PSU, and getting a cheap one is never a good idea, but you could quite safely go to this Antec for $60: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... For a mobo, a P43 or P45 should be sufficient. I like Gigabyte and Biostar, others around here like Asus. Either of these is $90: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... yesiwillwin September 5, 2008 10:01:23 PM i'd say go for the gigabyte mobo. they are very sturdy and oc well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... oh and try this psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... cheaper plus a nice $30 rebate. there's some rebates that don't get honored but if you do things right, or complain to ocz, you'll get it! hahahaha nice rig ya got going there!
