need your opinion guys.....tanx 4 the help.....
tanx for the suggestion...i will search it first....
about the RAM...any suggestion....in my local shop only have Corsair, Mushkin, Patriot, Gskill,OCZ??? in my local shop there is a samsung HDD but not specify which is that, maybe i willl think abou 500Gb CaviarBlack.
whats your local shop? All of those brands make good ram, just try to find some DDR3 1333MHz or 1600MHz ram with a cas 7(CL7) that is reasonably priced.
If you are going to get a WD drive the 500 and 750GB drives are older, the 640 and 1TB drives are newer, WD currently doesnt have any lower capacity drives using the newest 500GB platters, they have a couple that have capacities well above 1TB.
Max resolution depends on your monitor's max resolution, a 512MB 4850 will run crysis on high smoothly at 1280x1024.
You can use a single nVidia card on an AM3 platform but if you are going to do that get a 550vx PSU and a 770 board because its not worth getting a crossfire capable board and power supply if you are only ever going to run a single card anyway.
All AM2+ boards are compatible with AM3 processors, but they have DDR2, if you want a DDR3 board you have to get an AM3 socket but AM3 sockets use the same chipsets as an AM2+ board so all of the chipsets come in two forms, AM2+ boards and AM3 boards. A 4870 should be able to play it maxed out, but a 4850 will run everything except crysis maxed out with decent frame rates, crysis isnt the best way to judge a card.
