So.... here we go!
Crosshair IV Formula/AMD Phenom II x6 1090t I want to go with this motherboard because.. well... its the best AMD motherboard you can get. I love the features, i will go with the M4A89TD if I have to. I want to go with the processor because i always max out my quad core... (athlon ii x4) when i render, 6 cores will be a big help! http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
Looks decent to me. You already know your stuff pretty well. Newegg combos should help lower the cost
There are 4 new processors comig out on tuesday. a new Athlon II X4 at 3.1 GHz, The X6 1075 (3.0 GHz), and 2 versions of the Phenom II X4 970 at 3.5 GHz. One Deneb based, the other Thuban based with 2 locked cores, OEM only. But it will have the Thuban's better memory controller and 8GB L3 cache
I am sorry to hear you had to lower your budget. I remember reading a few of your earlier post and you seemed pretty excited about getting ready to start the build. From what I understand the 6850 video card might launch in late October but I am guessing it would be about the same as a 5870 (just my opinion.) I remember reading that ATi will be dropping the price on their current models so hopefully that will take place before you purchase a video card. I believe your build is top notch, I would suggest a different video card but you stated that you have no interest in Nvidia products. If I come across any sales on the parts you posted I will make sure to let you know.
^ Ya the color inside is different, but no windowed side-panels so I doubt you will notice,...
Also like I said, the 922 comes with 2x200MM Megaflow fans as stock, so that adds up to the price of the 922 and right now the 912 is about $70 if you include shipping and the 922 is $90 Shipped, so the margin is reduced even further...Also the 922 will give you more space to work with too...
I am so sorry but I just cant stop suggesting the 922 over the 912 for such a build
The 912 is in the league of say the Antec 300 IMO and is better suited for say maybe upto GTX 460s SLIs or something like that, but when going with larger cards and big coolers, you would really appreciate the extra space the 922 offers...
But its your call though,...anyways the 912 also is such a good case, so its fine...
well its not on the antec 300 level.. its budget, yes.. but its not made like a budget case... it has the same metal as the haf x and ill airbrush the inside... yes AIRBRUSH the INSIDE XD of the case black/camo grey
