So I have 2 750 SATA drives and a 880GT 512 to throw into this from my old rig.. Thoughts? I mean price wise I think I got this nailed to the wall.
I am on the fence about the 9600 versus the 7750. I play Flight sim games.. not cutting edge FPS games.. so.. I am thinking the 7750 will be better because it is the new stepping model and no stupid TLD bug.
The ram seems like it is going to be as fast as I can get.. seems like the mobo will run it..
2 2gig sticks of the fastest stuff.. the mobo looks like it will use it right. using the heat sink that comes with the proc.. a little arctic silver to make it work better.. two rice size beads.. rub em around.. apply heat sink.
Power supply seems like enough. I WONT over clock the system so no biggie there.
Dunno.. willing to accept some ideas on modifications.. a couple more bucks here and there.. for some big performance gains is what I am looking for.
i dont need HDMI on the mobo.. but this one for the price seems right. I am not married to AMD or intel or any specific mobo mfg. I have had AMD and Intel and been happy with both. I have had many different mobo mfgs and been super happy with all my picks in the past 15 years. so.. whatever.. cut loose let me know
Thanks for looking I have come to this forum for YEARS.. like seems like 10 to look at the processor performance charts and to make my pick and do my research but this time.. I think it is this easy. I just wanted to make sure.
Either processor is a big upgrade from your P4. However it appears I can't give you a definite, 7750BE over 9600BE. Because FS is multi core app that can use all 4 cores of the 9600. 7750BE has higher clock speed, and I'm sure it can hit 3ghz with just multiplier change.
My own choice, I would go with 7750BE, just because, right now, I like higher cpu speed over more cores.
wondering about the mobo and ram combination. The mobo seems to not be able to set the voltages on the ram.. it says 1.8 but alot of the ram says higher needed. 1.9 to 2.2
so.. if I cant up the voltage.. then.... well.. I am done.. I think.. or am I over thinking this?
So many new features on this board.. I read the manual.. looks really good.. as far as compatibilties I should be golden.. the manual says 300 watt power supply minimum.. the one I got a name brand 500.. plenty of connectors..
I would not get a cheap m/b.If You can aford it get somthing better.Higher end m/b have better bios features like ram volt settings etc.The m/b is the heart of your pc and is a bitch to upgrade.GET the best You can afford!
