  1. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    What is ur budget for the mobo?, I not recommend a mobo with onboard video more if that mobo is for a gaming rig, but I can give u some options with onboard video. Just tell me ur budget.
  2. my budget is 10.5k for both processor and mobo
  3. i have ddr2 2gb ram already.... so not gonna upgrade it
  4. actly iam new to amd processors... so give me in depth advise for it
  5. I'm not from the US, so i'm not sure what do u mean with 10.5K ($10500?), I know that is ur budget but I don't know if that is in US dollars.

    my budget is rs.10500 dude....
    i mentioned the amount in indian rupees :)
  7. Sorry for the slow answer.

    1- The X4 955 is a very nice processor (I have one), but with ur buget is better get another different CPU and go with mobo AM3 and DDR3, the DDR2 and AM3 combination isn't very good.
    2- U can go with an Athlon II X4 630, an ASUS M4A77TD and 4GB DDR3 G.Skill, all that is around $300 US dollars.

    but dude..u know i really have a shortage in money... so i cant go for buying ddr3 ram.. so better suggest me with some other combinations using ddr2 ram itself
  9. to wich processor on intel can u compare the performance of Athlon II X4 630
  10. Intel is more expensive that AMD, so, for ur budget isn't a good otion.

    U can go with this ASUS M4A77D is a good option and support both the 630 and 955 CPUs.

    how much watt should my psu have for suppoting that mobo?
  12. I need to know all the other components to suggest to u a PSU.

    1- CPU
    2- GPU (Crossfire or not)
    3- HD
    4- DVD Drive
    5- RAM
    6- Other components.

    Usually a gaming rig have a good 550W or 650W from a good manufacturer like Antec, Corsair, PC Power and Cooling or Seasonic.
  13. intel core2 quad 2.66ghz
    9400gt 512mb
    1tb seagate SATA
    20x LG IDE
    22x Samsung IDE
    2gb Transcend
  14. This are the power requirements for ur GPU.

    Thermal and Power Specs:
    Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105 C
    Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 50 W
    Minimum Recommended System Power (W) 300 W


    The recommended PSU is for the entire system, so, u can go with this CORSAIR 450W
