Question about build.

Hello! New here, but I've been to this site many times in the past, if only as a lurker seeking knowledge.

The following are the parts I plan to get for a new build, but I'd just like to make sure it's a decent build for the money. All links go to newegg.

Power Supply
Mother Board

I already have the other parts I need--Case and GPU.

It's been a very long times since I've built a machine, and I'm just looking for a little advice and confirmation that these parts will work well together.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Not the best selection. For an AMD build you will want a 2x2 kit not a 3x2 kit, the gskill ecos are fast, low voltage, and will save you quite a bit

    The XFX 850W PSU costs significantly less than that kingwin, and is high quality

    Whats your over all budget for the build and what monitor resolution will you be using? You can combo that XFX PSU i posted with an XFX 5850 for a pretty good deal and the PSU's 15% off promo code will still work
  2. My budget is $700, but I doubt I'll need to spend that much since I already have a case and GPU. The resolution I'll be using is the same as my current one--1920 by 1080.

    BTW, this is my GPU, so I don't think I'll need to get a new one for a while.
  3. IMO I would go for an 800 series chipset board for a potential bulldozer upgrade.
  4. Yep. There's about 100 others, but that one seems fine. Asrock is a surprisingly reputable brand nowadays.

    And I say potential, but I mean you will be able to upgrade, it's just not 100% that you personally will.
  5. Thank you all for the help! T'is much appreciated! I've decided to go with the following:

    Power Supply

    I decided to go with the KINGWIN Lazer LZ-1000 1000W power supply over the one recommended above due to the fact it's only about $15 more after rebates and I like the modular design. That way, I can get better airflow in my case since I won't have a bunch of extra, unused wires hanging around inside.

    Yet again, thanks. I'll most likely be visiting this site again in the future. -peace.
