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!

  1. tecmo34, your links didn't work. it just brought me to the main page...which is what mine do as well. sorry. haha
  2. Combo is... AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX & ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

  3. ok i'm liking the new mobo you suggested but what's the difference between the 2 types of RAM?
  4. Tecmo's recommendation on ram was 7-8-7-24 and yours was 9-9-9-24
  5. ok what do those numbers mean exactly? And is that worth the switch?
  6. The one I suggested has the lower timings, meaning it is faster.
  7. perfect, thanks.
  8. So I wouldn't need any extra cables for this build?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. I went with a 5770 for my build and xfired later. Still wish I had just got a 5850 from the get go.
