Hi everyone, I'm new here at Tom's Hardware!
and also still new on building specific/proper and right components for my computer.
This are the things that i've gathered online:
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T BE
XFX RADEON HD 6870 BE ( I'm planning to crossfirex with the same graphics card someday)
Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM
Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W ATX
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600
this is how i am taking my time to find more information about the right motherboard i'm going to get with the following parts above and this is how i came to this choices:
As for the ram compatibility: you can download the PDFs from the motherboard manufacturer's website and/or it should be listed on their sites the list of "compatible" ram. Nowadays, though, mobo manufacturers have gotten very flexible in that respect and generally speaking so long as it's the right DIMM it should work. The most you'll have to do is change the timings yourself.
If i'm not mistaken, the IMC on the CPU is limiting the ram to ddr1333 unless it's overclocked. If that is right and I'm not mistaken then just OC the puppy... Hell, ^^ is a good board and that's good ram and the CPU/PSU can handle it. Why the hell not?
