Need help choosing mobo,ram,psu Tags: Homebuilt RAM Build Systems Product Last response: May 15, 2009 2:44 PM in Systems Share onslavs May 11, 2009 3:43:30 PM I am willing to build an E8400 + HD4890 rig, but can't choose which mobo (should allow to oc) to get. Also would like to know what ram is better for this setup and what how powerful psu should suit me. Thanks in advance More about : choosing mobo ram psu aevm May 11, 2009 4:55:25 PM RAM: G.Skill PI Black DDR2-800. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231209 MB/PSU: GA-EP45-UD3P and Corsair 750TX if you want the option to add a second video card later. GA-EP45-UD3R and Corsair 650TX if you are sure one card is enough. It really depends on your monitor. For 1680x1050 or less one HD 4890 is plenty, IMO. For 1920x1080 or more you should keep the Crossfire option. batuchka a b B Homebuilt system May 12, 2009 1:58:04 PM If u open to AMD options Non multi GPU Gigabyte AM3 770-UD3P P2X3 720BE 2 X 2 Gskill DDR3 1333 GTX 275 Multi GPU Biostar AM3 TA790GX A3+ P2X3 720BE 2 X 2 Gskill DDR3 1333 HD4890 Related resources Ok...

The AMD Phenom II's are a great value and perform extremely well. Good choice on the 4890. They are AWESOME cards.
