Hi,

I'm going to buy a custom gaming computer. the specifications are

Amd Phenom II x4 970 BE 3.5ghz
Asus M4A88T-M motherboard
Patriot 8gb ram 1600mhz
Seagate 1tb 7200rpm 32mb cache
Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1gb

I'm just wondering if the motherboard can support all these specs with no problems and can it support 8gn 1600mhz?

Thank you!

Hi!

I got the M4A88TDV-EVO USB 3.0 mobo so it is pretty much the same only in ATX size. If it supports the exact ram or not idk, but you can go to the Asus homepage and look at compatible ram table. Although the mobo will clock down the ram to 1333MHz but can easily be set to 1600MHz in bios. Thats what I've done. Just go into AI Tweaker and set it to 1600MHz default.

I also got the hd6870 card, it's ******* awsome :D 

Just keep in mind the psu, you should buy a quality psu 80%+ at least 550W or 650W to be sure..

Good luck with your new build!

I don't think a computer company would sell it to you if the motherboard could not handle the hardware they put on it. LOL

You never know! I've heard about several stories where people have bought custom build computers where things has been wrong. I.e. OS has been installed on the 7200RMP disk and the SSD wasn't even connected to the mobo only installed in the case!

.....that's what warranties are for.....when things go wrong.

So you build it yourself and then you don't have to worry about whether someone did it right.

Here's something that really confuses me. According to your "member configuration" you already have an X3 at 3.9ghz on almost the same motherboard, same speed ram and same video card, so why would you buy a pre-built with the exact same hardware as what you have now??.


Why not just put a new cpu on the motherboard you have and add another 4gb of Corsair XMS3? Something is fishy here, your not making any sense at all.
