Just bought a home so I'm on a tight budget. Trying to get the most out of my money. More about : amd build review stevensl2 August 16, 2009 4:19:42 PM You did build it right? i hope you didn't buy it online somewhere cuz then it musta cost a tonne! btw is your motherboard Crossfire ready? - Cuz I don't think a 4890 needs that much power xD I think your PC is a little higher than mid grade, its actually really good. Definitely 8.9 / 10 for me =] p.s: Its Xfx not Hfx m 0 l Outlander_04 a b À AMD August 16, 2009 9:31:23 PM psu is overkill 650 watt for a single 4890 750 watt for a crossfire set up you can also probably get cheaper 1333 MHz RAM without affecting performance look for 7-7-7-20 or lower timings and under 1.7 volts That will save you a bit m 0 l Related resources My new AMD build...

If you're just playing on a 1680x1050, then you can cut some and get a 4870 1 gb for $130 and still not use all the GPU. m 0 l xaira August 16, 2009 11:34:42 PM looks good m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
