More about dose build sound good
  1. Well, you didn't give us any basic information like the intended use of the build or a budget, but it is a nice all-around build. I would up the PSU to the 750TX if you plan on adding another 4870 in crossfire later.
  2. ok but can any of you list some parts for a intel set up plz and try to make a nvidia gpu plz if and i was looking at the intel 2 duo core e8400 that looks good so try to include that in there all i want is a good gaming set up for £700 maby like £730 max but all i want is a fast gaming pc that will play css wow fallout3 and gta4 crysis can go screw its self lol but if you can list a intel set up that will play those games well then that would be grate meny thanks if you can ed.

  4. ^+1 Why_Me's build. With the difference in budget, I would look to upgrade to the Am3 955 BE, which will still keep you within budget

    AM3 955 BE

    I would recommend against a Core2 Duo build at your budget. 1.) You will have a better overall build with an AM3 do to the better pricing. 2.) The Core2 Duo is EOL, so you don't have an upgrade path, where the AM3 is a current chip set and should provide an upgrade path for a few years.

    These are my opinions, so take them as you will
  5. ok but will the am3 work with all the other parts
