I am building my own system for the very first time and I THINK I have a pretty good understanding of the components I am getting, but I want to be sure that all components will be compatible and if they are all good quality - meaning I don't want one thing lagging down the rest. Any comments or advice about my new build would be appreciated.
This is my setup:
Azza Solano 1000 ATX Full Tower Case w/ tons of fans
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Denab 3.4Ghz Black Edition Processor
The only change that I'd strongly recommend is going with a performance grade hard drive. Samsung F3, Seagate 7200.12, or Caviar Black, The Samsung F3 should be the most affordable of those. The Caviar Green does work as a primary hard drive, but it is much better suited as a secondary storage drive.
Windows 7 comes out in just a few days so get that instead. Also, I second a better hard drive as the primary drive. Crossfiring 4670s leaves little room for upgrade later. I would recommend spending the same amount on one card right now and a little later buying a second. That processor might be overkill. That power supply is definitely way more than you need. Get a 650w for much less.
