I will be ordering my all of my parts tommorow so I need some close to instant feedback here on my FIRST ever build. Budget is ~900 and I think Ive got the best products for my budget but I'd like to feedback/opinions of what everyone thinks. Also if you think I've forgotten something Im going to need feel free to inform me. Thanks.
you seem to like gaming. If so, buy a crossfire capable MOBO and 2x 4770. It'll be arround 100$ more since you need a more expensive mobo to have 2x PCI express 2.0 o 16x, but I believe you can do it with a 900$ budget
I would pick a slightly different setup, but that's a great case. I'm currently using it and I would recommend you get a couple extra 120mm fans to put in it. Not cause it needs it, but it has lots of room for them. I have 2 in the top, 1 in the bottom, 2 on the front, and 1 on the back.
Considering that you have a crossfire board you may as well go with an ATI card so I would say go with the 4870 1GB. It's generally a little faster than a 260 sp 192 and you can add another 4870 latter to increase your performance. As for the motherboard, since you're going to use a dedicated GPU you can save a few bucks and go with
There currently is a $54.00 combo with this motherboard and the CPU you have picked out so this motherboard will only end up costing you $75.99 if you think about it, and it has a $15.00 MIR which will leave you open to use that money for other upgrades. You will have to switch out your RAM for DDR3 if you get this board so just remember that.
As for a video card, you can get a 4890 for about the same price as the one you have picked out, and I think it would be a much wiser choice to get one of those in place of the card you have chosen now, and if you want even more performance in the future you can always buy another
So with changing all these things you will be spending probably around $10-15 more on the RAM, and $15 more on the video card, but you will also be spending $44 less then you would have been if you were buying the motherboard you have picked out now, so you are saving around $15 in the grand scheme of it all and you are getting better performance out of the build too.
