Could someone please look over this build and tell me if it's all compatable before I place my order? Thanks. Also, any extra cables I will be needing? I have an OEM version of windows so I don't need that. Thank you!

ok i'm liking the new mobo you suggested but what's the difference between the 2 types of RAM?
September 9, 2010 10:45:38 PM

Tecmo's recommendation on ram was 7-8-7-24 and yours was 9-9-9-24
September 9, 2010 10:47:27 PM

ok what do those numbers mean exactly? And is that worth the switch?
September 9, 2010 10:48:35 PM

The one I suggested has the lower timings, meaning it is faster.
September 9, 2010 10:49:42 PM

perfect, thanks.
September 9, 2010 10:59:32 PM

So I wouldn't need any extra cables for this build?
September 9, 2010 11:06:28 PM

The motherboard should come with 2-4 SATA cables, which should be all you need.

What resolution are you gaming at? (Assuming you're gaming.) The 5770 is kind of weak for new/fps games at 1920x1080, but it's perfectly fine at 1680x1050.
September 9, 2010 11:10:09 PM

Ya I know it's kinda weak but here's my theory, In time I can add another 5770 in xfire and it will be a lot better. Plus when it comes time to upgrade, that card will be next to nothing, or more so, I can upgrade to a way better one down the road. This build with the 5770 is at the top of my budget (well wife's budget) so I gotta stick with that for now.
September 9, 2010 11:23:53 PM

I'm just wondering if you could drop the X4 955 down to an Athlon II X3, maybe save a little money elsewhere, and upgrade to a 5850 instead. I'm not looking at newegg.ca right now, but it seems like it might be possible.
September 9, 2010 11:43:27 PM

I went with a 5770 for my build and xfired later. Still wish I had just got a 5850 from the get go.
