Need Help on Homebuilt System Tags: New Build Computer Homebuilt Systems Product Last response: April 9, 2010 12:40 PM in Systems Share wrathsheep April 8, 2010 7:21:39 PM Hello there, I've recently been looking into building my own computer. Since its my first homebuilt computer, i need some help. I want to know if everything fits together. I will be using the computer mostly for gaming. OS: Windows 7 - Home Premium 64bit Motherboard: Αsus P7P55D-E EVO Processor: Intel Core i7-860 Processor (8M Cache, 2.80 GHz) Cooler: Zalman CNPS10X Quiet Ram: OCZ PC3-12800 Obsidian 4GB (1600MHz) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1GB (x2) - Crossfire Monitor: LG W2486L-PF LED Monitor 24'' PSU: Thermaltake W0229 Toughpower XT 750W I also would like to know if the 5770s are working good on Crossfire. Edit: Case: Thermaltake VI1000BWS M9 Hard Drive: Western Digital WD10EAVS 1TB Thanks in advance, Larry More about : homebuilt system mosox a b B Homebuilt system April 8, 2010 7:28:53 PM Better get a single HD 5850 or HD 5870. A Phenom II X4 AM3 system is cheaper and not worse in gaming. wrathsheep April 9, 2010 8:59:12 AM mosox said:Better get a single HD 5850 or HD 5870. A Phenom II X4 AM3 system is cheaper and not worse in gaming. The HD 5850 has two 6-pin PCI-E power connectors right? The Thermaltake PSU has: 2 x 6pin PCI-E connectors 2 x 8pin PCI-E connectors So if i want to get another HD 5850 in the future to Crossfire, will the 8pin connectors work for the second 5850? Also, if i get a Phenom II X4 AM3 instead of Intel Core i7, i need to get a different Motherboard. Is "Asus M4A79T Deluxe" a good choice?

According to the ThermalTake website, your PSU should also come with two six inch 8 pin -> 6 pin adapters. You would use those. wrathsheep April 9, 2010 9:17:43 AM jsc said:Yes. Sort of.

You have the HDD and DVD writer? wrathsheep April 9, 2010 12:40:15 PM Yeah, the HDD and the Dvd writer isnt a problem. The thing is that im buying the parts from a local computer store, and the parts i chose are some of the ones that are in stock. Im thinking of getting the AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHZ Black Edition. What do you think of the Asus M4A79 Deluxe or the Asus M4A79T Deluxe motherboard? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
