^ Well assuming you are building a gaming PC, I have some suggestions...but before that, could you tell what is the resolution of your monitor ??
May 20, 2010 9:19:03 AM

o.O oh god its a terrible monitor tbh only like 19" i dont know the rezolution :{ sorry

^ hmm even a 19" has pretty decent resolution...If it is a wide screen, it can have upto 1680X1050 or 1440X900...
And change the mobo to this...Just few bucks more, but opens up the option of unlocking the cores in the Phenom II as it has ACC in the BIOS...

Just search Phenom II X2 unlocking in google...

And the quality of the PSU is very questionable...I would rather spend less on the case and get a better quality PSU...

HDD - get the Samsung F3 500GB instead...It is faster and more reliable...

that would be better?
the reason i chose that case is because i was worried the otherones wouldnt fit the motherboard.

^ Just get a case which says ATX compatible and has atleast 1 FAN...
Get this case...IMO it looks to be good one and at a very good price...

Or these also will do

And with the money saved, get this PSU
Far better quality...
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/135159

And certainly change the graphics card to this one...Though about 5 bucks more, its worth it...
Sapphire HD 5770 512MB - Though it only has 512MB, IMO it would suffice for a 19" and also the 5770 chip would compensate for it and actually you would get better frames than the 5750...

ok so i've chosen to go with the top case and the psu :)  thank you for those, but with the graphics card, i plan to upgrade my monitor so should i get the 5770 or 5750?
May 20, 2010 10:57:22 AM

Go for the 5770. There is a surprising amount of difference between these cards and you get more bang for your buck.

^Yes...HD 5770 is a better choice...
If you will be getting say a 1080p resolution monitor, then investing a little more in the HD 5770 1GB would make sense as the 1GB frame buffer would do good for that resoluiton...

and also a note...if you have not planned for core unlocking or anything, then the Athlon II X3 would be a very good choice IMO...
The extra core does help...

So i should get a different processor? i thought the AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition 3.1GHz 6MB L3 Cache was a great choice :/  please help, you've been so much help so far :') thanks

^ Those are good no doubt...they were a famous choice for another reason - Core unlock...AMD locks the unstable cores of the Quad-core chips, and sell them as dual cores...So there is a possibility that you can unlock these cores by using the ACC option in the BIOS...But there is no 100% guarantee that those unlocked cores would work fine...
Later AMD launched the Tri-Cores, which offered better performance in multi-threaded apps and the absence of the L3 cache was not that significant for these CPUs...So the new Athlon II X3s became the best option for this budget range...
Check out the suggestions provided by the TOM's website...

^ If you want to take chances, then get the X2 550 - Can be changed to a Phenom Quad...But anyways its a fast Dual core too...
But if you want to play safe, then the X3 440 is a good option as you get a stable 3 core CPU...

thank you :)  you've been a huge help im going to be ordering these parts tonite :D

May I ask what you basing this off? As in why do you say that the Be Quiet PSU is a bad one? I have read a positive review of it (stable voltages, high efficiency and quietness), admittedly the review I read wasn't that indepth, but it was positive nevertheless and it's rated for almost all the 530 watts on it's 12V rail. Which is more than the OCZ StealthXStream.

^ Sorry I dont see any Be Quiet PSUs being linked here...

May 24, 2010 12:49:02 PM

^ Well he had listed a extra value PSU which was cheaper...and not the Be Quiet one...You could see in my initial posts...Notice the post that you had quoted ? I had said with the money saved, get a better PSU...Well there is negligible difference between that OCZ and the Be Quiet PSU...So if the OP had linked that PSU, I dont think I would have brought the price factor into the picture...

But I do remember seeing some post linking a Be Quiet PSU though...but not sure if it was in this thread though...

? Maybe I just assumed that he was linking to the Be Quiet PSU that I had recommended a few times to him. If so, I apologize.

^ Hey nothing wrong in asking the reasons...
But am sure I recently saw a thread which had a Be Quiet PSU linked...So maybe the confusion...
