More about which decide systems
  1. #3. you lose very little on the CPU, but get a much, much better GPU. The HD 5750 isn't going to be gaming at all.

    Something to point out is that you could save a bit by going with the X4 955. It's the same chip as the 965, just cheaper due to not having a slight factory overclock.

    Also, you whoudl switch the WD HDD for the Seagate 7200.12. The Seagate will be a lot faster and should save a little cash.

    You also need to make sure you're getting a high quality PSU. Don't get anything that's not made by Corsair, Antec, Silverstone, SeaSonic or PC Power & Cooling.
  2. Would go with 3 if I were you. Mainly because the requisite usages for the machine are video intensive and the 5850 will serve your needs better IMO. You will also have the option of crossfiring with a better card in the future.
    What '600w' PSU are you planning on going with? PLEASE don't say budget!! :)
    GL

    Was writing message as MA was writing his, at work though so I can only write one sentence at a time. But, his answer did not influence mine. :p Still go with 3!
  3. If i should #3,
    I found that G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) (PC3 12800) F3-12800CL7D is not support AMD mainboard. Could you please suggest RAM?
  4. No, it's supported by AMD boards. If it didn't work with AMD, I wouldn't be using my computer right now. It's just marketed towards Intel. You may just have to set the timings, voltage and speed manually, but you should do that any way.

    EDIT: Here's the exact build I would recommend:

    CPU/Mobo: X4 955 and Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 $265 after rebate
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $115
    GPU: HD 5850 $315
    HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $55
    Case/PSU: Antec 300 Illusion and Earthwatts 650W $125
    Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $23

    Total: $902
  5. Get this RAM.
  6. Those are CL 9. They're a lot slower than the ones I've got above, and won't save much.
  7. Oops! :)
  8. It's true I got the same memory as suggestd by madadmiral about a month ago. It's blue and works great. And btw $10 difference is totally worth it.

    Also try a XFX 5850. They carry a lifetime warranty for a few bucks more.

    As suggested get the Phenom II 955 instead of the 965 and just overlock it yourself.

    Also get yourself one of these, I'm surprised MadAdmiral didn't already recommend one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065
  9. Actually the ram selected by willmalcom would be really good since it's rated at 1.5v. They would give you more overclocking potential
  10. The only problem with that is you can't really get much higher than 1600 mhz with AMD boards. So the sticks with the tighter timings would be better once you've overclocked it.
  11. Thank you for every suggestion :)
