  1. Use this format: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

    And also your links don't seem to work...
  2. Links dont work, please fill out the sticky.

  4. Your build uses several past generation parts. I would recommend something like this instead:

    You'll appreciate the the better GPU in particular. This totals about $550 but if that's over your budget, changes can be made.

  6. No 550 w/o shipping.

    Here's a good NVidia card.

  8. ATI would save you money without sacrificing performance, otherwise you could sacrifice performance and go with the 250

    Also, if you aren't going to multitask, a dual core 545 will not hurt the gaming performance too much.

  9. You cant use that board with DDR2 ram, you need to get this one
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128376

    This card is close in performance to the 4850 and should be able to play everything on high while lowering the price quite a bit

  11. Nope, looks like you got the cheapest one. Also, hunter is correct about the RAM, you could go with the board he suggested and keep the RAM or go with the RAM I suggested and not use the old RAM.
  12. ,,,,,,,,,,,
  13. one question what kinda gaming do you do an what resolution
  14. ,,,,,,,,,,,
  15. thats not too demanding if you gonna play at 1680x1050 then a 4850 would be reasonable you can go for a 4670 or drop it all together an get a 785g board wich has 4200 graphics chip in
  16. ,,,,,,,,,,,
  17. The 785G would NOT be able to handle it, the AMD IGPs are decent at 1024x768 but 1280x1024 is alot more stressful and it wouldnt be able to maintain playable frame rates at medium or high detail level no matter how not demanding the game is. It cant even give 30 FPS in L4D at medium settings at that resolution.
  18. Well here a link to a 4670 but I wouldn't use onboard 4200, 3300 is better and discrete is far better.

    SAPPHIRE 100255HDMI Radeon HD 4670 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported

  20. Very well at that resolution.
  21. ,,,,,,,,,,,
  22. ,,,,,,,,,,,
  23. Yes they do, AM3 processors can use AM2+ boards but not vice versa. It may require a bios update.
  24. Every one mentioned a 4670 and a 4850, why not a sapphire 4770.... Less on pay and just as good as a 4850..
  25. Because the sapphire one costs the same as the 4850, but the xfx 4850 has a cooler to exhaust the heat, a double lifetime warranty, and runs slightly faster, it uses slightly more power but with no price difference it still has a lot going for it.
