A lot of it depends on what your going to be using the system for
whats more important?
budget limits or jealous mates?
power efficiency or killer gaming?
post any parts you already own,if any and your intentions for the Rig, people can advise you better then :)

Hello goombapatrol;

No problems with those parts working together.
I noticed you'd picked a PSU even before you decided on the video card? It's usually the other way around.
A couple things you could do that are budget friendly:
- go with Phenom II X6 1055T. Add a good CPU cooler for some overclocking to boost CPU performance.
- and 4GB of RAM. The benefit of going with 8GB of RAM in gaming is very slight.

wow, you guys are awesome fast.

I am actually using it just as a 3d render machine so I am not that concerned about the video card but I have an Nvidia 240 gt around somewhere. I have a system running 4 gigs of ram and it cant seem to handle all the huge textures in my scene but I have a laptop that can and it has 8 gigs of ram.

I am not too keen on overclocking because I am not that good with computers. However, if it is easy and I don't need to install extra fans etc and it is stable (no overheat problems) I would do it.

WR2 is on with the 1055t. I bought a 1090T myself even though I only wanted the 1055T. The price/performance difference is too great imo to justify going from 1055T to 1090T unless you NEED the extra performance or NEED the BE CPU for overclocking. And even for overclocking the 1055T is plenty, its just slightly more tricky to do.
Corsair makes some of the best PSU's... But for the price, I'd go with a different brand. There are plenty of brands that are similar in quality, at much lower prices. And picking a PSU before the rest of your rig isn't ideal either. Because its better to buy what you need and save money, than go overkill for no reason and throw money out the window... Money that could have went to water cooling, or better ram, or a better GPU, etc.
It's always important to find the right balance when on a budget.

I would maybe look to other differences between your lappy and desktop as to why it seems to handle tasks 'better', it may not be just down to the extra ram
Your Black edit Hexcore is going to be fine for stuff like rendering/modelling etc, but if your not intending on overclocking maybe go a little cheaper cause you dont need the unlocked muliplier,
read some of the reviews on this and see if maybe it suits you better, there on a tab on the links page,

Saves you a few Dollars and it will clock slightly to match the B.E.'s 3.2GHz on stock fan

If your case, with a non-gaming, 3D rendering system 8GB of RAM does make a lot of sense.

A 750W PSU is vastly more than you need. Your system, with the GT 240 video card, really only needs a 300watt PSU.
I'd suggest taking a good look at the Corsair 450VX - great PSU and enough power for a good video card upgrade in the GTX 460 class.

Safe and sane overclocking is just a click away. A light amount of overclocking is really easy with the GigaByte Easy Tune 6 software.
You can easily reach 3.2Ghz (X6 1090T) and more without straining any part of your system.

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the input. I went and got the 1090T and an ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 motherboard with it. I had to get this system right away since I had some rendering to do.

I tried to overclock using the Asus auto overclock software but it basically just crashed my computer.
