Helllo, I am just asking for 2nd opinion on the build I have on my mind already. If there any questions about this or comments or whatever, let me know please I love constructive criticism.


APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ( this week (the next few hours? lol)) BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: 300-500( 600 if need be))After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: (Homework obviously the most important, then gaming, surfing web)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: (keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, PSU, Hard drives, dvd-rw drive)

I already have the PSU i plan to use, which is an StealthXStream OCZ600SXS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Right now i have a HD4850 with 512mb which i plan to use in my new computer build with crossfire since i've read in articles that is really good combination and great bang for the buck. This is the exact on I have. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The problem is finding another exact one.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com, Tigerdirect.com ) COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: (U.S.)

PARTS PREFERENCES: I really like AMD because they're cheaper and still pack a lot. Also Asus I like very much. Antec is also good. I'd really like to get a Quad Core CPU

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe after making sure everything works. CROSSFIRE: Yes I plan to or if someone has anything better.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I plan to crossfire with another 4850, but i'm having trouble finding another 4850 with 512mb of memory at a good price and by the same manufacture. My question is, do I nee to have the other 4850 made by sapphire, or can I use any hd4850 chip set?



What I'm looking for is Processor, Ram, Mother board (with 2 PCI-E for CF and the space for it), Case (that's functional, I don't really care for looks as long as it performs nicely), and another ATI hd4850 that will work with one I currently have (see above).

A good heat sink would be a nice suggestion for me but not super necessary.

-----------------------------------------------------

Right now this is what I'm thinking about getting this combination from new egg,

Seems like a great deal. The case I haven't really spent too much time on since its not super important.


Thank you for your help!!!

The Samsung F3 is the fastest hdd out right now, because it uses a single 500gb platter which is quieter, faster, cooler, and uses less energy compared to other hdds. The Antec Illusion has great cooling and good construction, its used by many veteran members of this forum for there own personal rigs. There just happened to be the almost exact same gpu as your old one on the Egg, its a little different in it physical details, but it has the exact same specifications so it should go well in crossfire.
