Hi, I have pieced together this system completely from scratch after reading a bunch of threads and reviews on my own and was just wondering if anyone had any input on different parts or anything while keeping about the same price.
Some items prices are lower than the webpage says because I will be pricematching them.
I will not be gaming that much if at all so the 4670 should be good I believe, to give you an idea of how little I really care about gaming....right now I have a 5600 Ultra lol.
I'm thinking it is probably worth it to throw in a cooler for about $60 right? I am open to all suggestions, I have no preferance, if you think that an AMD build would outperform this by all means go right ahead and suggest that. Thanks for looking.
Alright! That puts my mind at ease, thanks. As for the shooters that's good to know in case I ever get the urge to kill something lol.
I think I'll switch the ram to what you suggested and look closer at my board selection but I'm still leaning toward the P5Q because it makes the whole order get free shipping.....
Thanks for your input.
That's two reccomendations for the memory so I'll be going with that one than.
I was just looking at some charts and see that the phenom 2 940 is pretty close to the Q9400 in benchmarks so I was thinking maybe going that route seeing that I could get a cheaper mobo like the GA-MA780G-UD3H http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=36119&vpn=GA... and save some money. Any input on this idea/mobo? Thanks.
batuchka, your prices are in $US, not $CDN. The difference is significant, the motherboard and the PSU are available from Newegg.com, but not from Newegg.ca. While it might be a good motherboard, it isn't available from any site in Canada.
Once again thanks for the comments. I looked at batuchkas shopping cart and as soon as I saw the 940 for $230 I was pretty sure that was from newegg.com but thanks for the suggestions anyways. Ghislaing, I think that I probably will want to overclock later on when I feel that I could use a bit of a boost in performance and use a free "upgrade" so I'm in aggreance with you and think that I will most likely go with the Q9400.
