    I'd drop down and get a PII 720 x3 with that mobo if you want to go the Phenom II route. Use that savings to get a better case/psu as I don't think you want your computer in Rosewill's hands. Also, what do are you planning on using it for? Read the sticky and post more information.

    Case: Antec 300
    CPU: PII 720x3
    Corsair PSU (I'm not going to recommend what wattage you need, I'll let someone else with a bit more experience get that one)
  2. Im looking for mainly gaming and videos i have also photoshop cs3 extended and 3ds max which i dont use often..
  3. Yea, Get the x3 720 combo with the Gigtabyte 790gx motherboard.

    ddr2 1066 G.skills memory

    Coolermaster RC-690 Case


    GPU: Sapphire 4770


    PSU: you can get a nice $49.99 400cx corsair PSU

    or a 500w pc power.
  4. If you get the 790GX and the HD 4770 then get a Corsair 550VX or even better 650TX. That way you have the option to add a second HD 4770 later, if you want it, without buying a new PSU.
  5. Here's a good combo:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.190734
    $219, X3 720 + GA-MA790X-UD4P

    Fullmetall, is this the one you meant?
  6. thanks for the help aevm so i should go with the radeon 4770 which they dont have at newegg at the moment i dont think u know any other sites with as good prices?
  7. i went with the650tx i mean why not u get like 100 more wats for 7 bux more
  8. You get 11A more (that's 11A * 12V = 132W if you prefer). Definitely a smart move for $7 :)

    I'm sure the HD 4770 will be in stock soon. It's just that it sold way better than expected and they need to hurry up and make more. Order what you can while the combos are still on. You could try other sites (zipzoomfly, ncixus, microcenter, www.buy.com, Frys, etc.) but I think Newegg has the best prices.
  9. yeah ill just wait for it to come onto there site
