Hello.

I'm going buy a new computer and have found all the parts I need. I am now asking you guys to see if there are any parts that don't fit.

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD5850
HD: WD Caviar Black 1TB 3,5 inch, SATA3
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-750TXEU 750W
Cabinet: Cooler Master Dominator
CPU: Intel Core i7 Quad 920 2,66GHz
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, X58
RAM: Corsair Core i7 6GB Kit 3x2GB

It depends what you want to use it for is this going to be for gaming?
March 22, 2010 7:40:38 PM

I'm just asking if these parts all fit with eachother, so that should be irrelevant. But yes, it'll be used for gaming and other easier activities

Well all the parts should fit and if you're just a casual gamer who does other things too this is a very good configuration if you're a hardcore gamer I'd go with an i5 750 and a better graphics card(you'll also need different ram and mobo obviously). And do you know which latency your ram has? because lower latencies lower the time to start up proggrams
March 22, 2010 7:47:08 PM

1600MHz. Is that what you mean?
March 22, 2010 7:47:30 PM

You probably won't need 6gb of RAM.
March 22, 2010 7:48:31 PM

No, he means the timings. Find the page on newegg or where ever and find the timings it will looks something like: 9-9-9-24.
March 22, 2010 7:48:54 PM

That is possible, but I want to be able to use this computer in a couple of years too. I'm going to play Bad Company 2 mainly, will this computer be able to drive it on max performance?
March 22, 2010 7:49:41 PM

Oh.

CAS Latency: XMP 8-8-8-24 @ 1600MHz (1.65V)
JEDEC9-9-9-24 @ 1333MHz
March 22, 2010 7:52:29 PM

Yes this is a pretty high end build and will almost certainly handle bc2 on highest graphics. And as willmalcom said I mean timings beacause mhz doesn't make so much of a difference unless you overclock since you need to pump up the fbs to go over 1066mghz
March 22, 2010 7:53:57 PM

What's the difference? Btw, I live in Norway, so my options are rather limited compared to you guys'.
March 22, 2010 7:54:09 PM

BC2 is amazing! What is your steamid?
March 22, 2010 7:56:15 PM

I haven't got it yet (it's on it's way) and I won't be playing until I get the computer. My Steam account's name is Excluzive (made it when I was like 13). Go ahead and add me
March 22, 2010 7:57:44 PM

Okey doke, I have a lot friends in Norway that I play DoDs with. Did you ever play?
March 22, 2010 7:58:50 PM

Day of Defeat? I tried it once, because it came with my CS game. Other than that, no.
March 22, 2010 7:59:48 PM

I would suggest taking 6gb though since that improves speed a lot more than cas latency or frequency (since it's triple channel). You could also go for 3gb but thats really not a lot.
March 22, 2010 8:03:04 PM

I'm going for this setup. I was really just asking if they all fit lol. Btw, a lot of my friends are telling me not to buy Windows 7 with it as they have a fully working copy of it that anyone can use. Seems like this is actually working, since a lot of them are using it. Is it too good to be true or am I just a bit outdated?
March 22, 2010 8:13:21 PM

windows 7 is the new king of the hill

you might wanna consider going to the i7 930
March 22, 2010 8:15:17 PM

So might it be that you can actually get it for free?

No, you can't LEGALLY get Windows 7 for free.

Turns out pretty much every store in Norway is out of Sapphire Radeon HD 5850. I'll have to wait until the 9th of April before I order it.
March 24, 2010 7:07:38 PM

What is the difference between Gigabyte EX58-UD3R and Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R?
March 25, 2010 3:37:26 PM

Never mind the post above.

Mind THIS, though!

I could be buying the computer right now if it wasn't for that damn GPU. It's sold out EVERYWHERE! Netonnet.no MIGHT get it 19.04.10. There are a lot of sites that have the HD 5770, though. Should I go for it, or is the 5850 so much better that it's worth the wait? I'll be playing Bad Company 2.
