  1. I need help guys i can not figure this out... HDMI/video card/mobo i want it all be compatible with my monitor.

    GPU has one min-HDMI and 2 DVI ports and i do not see mobo having any. Is it compatible? Should i run HDMI to mini-HDMI to video card or should i run HDMI to DVI cord?
  2. The mini HDMI to HDMI adapter is included so i'd just go with that ^^ See circled

    That covers the GPU, thanks!!

    And after a little research i learned that HDMI on mobo is a waste and not needed.
  4. Not wasted - if one depended on chipsets with integrated video good enuff for HD DVD/Blu Ray then on board HDMI could be a god send hehe

    I meant for me since i am getting a GPU so an onboard chipset would be a waste, correct? I am trying to save as much money as possible. Originally i was not planning to spend that much on the build, i had to stretch my budget.

    So in your opinion i am ready to order? Mobo, Ram, CPU, PSU everything g2g and compatible? Would 600W OCZ PSU be plenty for me? I am using a single GPU, no SLI in the future, the mobo has only one PCIe slot. Also it says it has 2 USB 3.0 ports, no USB 2.0. My wireless keyboard and mouse run through a USB port, would i have any issues using 3.0 ports? (i do not think so, just making sure) I have included the links to the combos for easy look up and the specifications.

    I read some reviews and it said that chip on the mobo does not use all the features of the Black Edition AMD PCU, but it is a good mobo for the price with usb3.0, SATA, and memOK with 1600 option, also easy to OC.

    Please take a look at everything and if i get a "g2g" i am making the order tonight. Thank you.

    Nice mobo/ram combo.

    I am trying to find a cpu/case combo now.

    I think for $20 extra I would rather get a 23'' screen instead of 21.5'' which does not come with DVI or HDMI cables, unless you suggest that it is a much better quality?

    thanks
  8. ^ Well there are only Rosewill cases in the combo...but this case looks pretty good though...
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.461691
    Or get the CPU Cooler combo and get another case...
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.459537

    As for the monitor, well its your choice...I dont think that LG is significantly better...
    But how about this ?
    15% coupon code: ACY58341 (expire soon) - $50 off = $162.49 plus FREE shipping.
    But comes with VGA cable though...

    IMO HP does make good monitors...

    Thank You! You just helped me save around 80 bucks and get a better GPU.

    I hope that case and ram are as good or near my original choices.

    As for CPU cooler, i am going to wait, i will do a basic OC to 3.4 or 3.6Ghz and see how the system behaves with stock cooler.


    One last question: Would 600W OCZ PSU be plenty for me? I am using a single GPU, no SLI in the future, the mobo has only one PCIe slot. Also it says it has 2 USB 3.0 ports, no USB 2.0. My wireless keyboard
    and mouse run through a USB port, would i have any issues using 3.0 ports? (i do not think so, just making sure)
  10. Best answer
    PSU - That 600W would suffice...

    Mobo - No USB2.0 ? Well it has many actually(12 x USB 2.0 ports (6 ports at mid-board, 6 ports at back panel))...though not specified @ newegg...
    http://techwiki.hardwarecanucks.com/product/2NTEyNzI5NzIwMA/Asus-M4A87TD-USB3/#spec

    CASE - That Rosewill from the reviews, does seem a very good value for money IMO...
    Memory - IMO Mushkin is one of the best memory manufacturers, maybe even better than GSKillz...

    You got me sold, Sir.

    Thank you for the mobo clarification and i read the reviews on the case, and yes.. indeed, it is a great case for the money. I was also looking into Phenom 965 combo with another Rosewill case for an extra $30 or so, but i am going to stick with 955 instead, the case has better reviews and the extra $30 will not be worth the slight increase in CPU power.

    The last question i have is about the TV you suggested. It is a great deal, i like it a lot, great manufacturer, but it does not seem to have HDMI?

    My original thought was to run HDMI 1.3 from GPU (using a miniHDMI to HDMI adapter as suggested by Batuchka) to the monitor for a better picture, color depth and 1080p... or would i get the same picture going DVI instead? Thanks once again.

    Wait... i am confused.... It is supposed to be HDMI but it says "VGA DVI-D HDCP" for the video input....

    I am so lost in these tech-terms, sucks being a noob. Couple days ago i knew absolutely nothing, and now i know, well... at least something :D
  12. ^ Referring the HP LCD monitor ? Yes, just noticed it doesn't come with HDMI...my bad...thought it would be the same as this
    http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/product_detail.do?product_code=WC292AA%23ABA&aoid=35252
    (That coupon also works with this bringing the price to ~$174)

    Use HDMI if you want audio as well to be sent to the monitor...Else the DVI would suffice...I doubt the picture quality would be any better using HDMI over DVI...

    I was going to get the 23" with HDMI for $174, but unfortunately they will charge me $14.40 Tax and $16.00 Recycling fee as per Cali state laws.... to a toal of $200.

    I am thinking i will go with newegg, at least these guys will not charge me Recycling fee, only Tax.

    Thank you for all your help.
