  1. RAM -
    Great timings, 1.5v and is designed for AM3 as well.

    Hard drive -
    It's one of the fastest and has sported great reputation and performance :)
  2. At just 1024 x 768 another option would be

    Rana 440
    770/785/870 mobo
    cheap sub $100 HD 4850/GTS 250
    500-600w 80+
    2-4gb ddr3
  3. don't listen to (designed for AM3) its all a scam. it will work with any modern cpu...

    agree with HDD ^
  4. I added the memory and HDD that you suggested and I switched the Mobo and CPU, everything else is still the same I might get a bigger screen later on so I stuck with the 460 plus it's DX11 supported. Just to let you know this is my first time I've ever built on pc so will there be any extra cords or wires that I will need??? BTW the total is 719.88 everything is free shipping so far a little over budget but that was expected!!!

    1. AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop

    2. ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  5. you don't need to buy and cables, they all come with your PSU/MOBO and sometimes other places...

    Above combo ihas an AM2+ mobo using DDR2 : the sun has gone down on DDR2 platforms as all current/future platforms will be DDR3 Avoid DDR2 for fresh builds
  7. Been looking for a good quality mobo do you all have any suggestions on the combo deals, also is there a big difference between the 445 and 440???
  8. Not really
  9. Stop spending money on your GPU, a 4XXX will work fine at your res.

    heck, even a 9800GX2 would work good :P

    I would get a 4850 if you don't upgrade your monitor
  10. Sorry this is my resolution 1280 x 1024!!!!!!!!
  11. HD 4850/GTS 250 up to 1680 x 1050 no AA still decent these days
  12. OK I might upgrade my monitor at some point but I've come up another build it's a little over 700, and what I want to know is if everything is compatible Mobo, Memory, CPU etc....
