I have stuck with AMD based chipset for every build, my present board is outdated and its time for a new setup. I followed your guidelines MadAdmiral and heres what i got:
I plan to place the order for the parts in two weeks. Since I have already upgraded some parts less than a year ago, my budget is higher for the more expensive items. The only items i require to complete my build are the motherboard, PSU, Case, RAM, Processor. I have the HD, Graphics (radeon HD 4850), DVD-ROM, DVD-RW. I plan to use this PC for gaming and general use. All parts have been located on Newegg.
The problem with the ripjaws is they dont register as 1600 in an AMD bios and need to be custom adjusted since they were designed for the Intel core i series processors. I like the look of the case you suggested. Do they have a similar model as a full tower? I am currently using a mid tower and my HD 4850 is to big to be contained in a mid tower.
Ill probably go with the ripjaws, and stay with the same case. If i feel the current case is to much ill probably exchange for the 922 or something comparative in size. Thanks for all the help Mad, manic and OSU.
