Hi guys, i was planning to build a new amd system, then i heared that bulldozer is coming soon, then after alot of search
i guess i'm gonna have to wait alot of time, so here's the system i was going for and hope to tell me your openion

Phenom II X4 955 or 965
Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H (890GX/SB850)
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB PC3 12800 CAS8


other parts i already have:
HEC PSU 600W 80Plus 52A on the 12v
Sapphire Radeon HD 5770
500G WesternDigital Sata 3GB

Well, i was going for the Gskill 1st b4 corsair, then i heared that its not best supported for AMD, for that i went for the corsair
and for the PSU i hope it can run a crossfire 5770?

More about : amd system

^ I wouldnt rely on that PSU to run 2x HD 5770s...though 52A on the 12V sounds good, but I wouldnt expect it to give out that much power when stressed i.e., when the system is in full load with 2x 5770s...

RAM - From where did you hear that GSKillz is not supported ?
All the DDR3 RAM are supported for AMD...

Rest are fine, and get the 955 over 965, you can run it at 965 speed easy...

well, i saw it alot in comments for the Gskill, then i sent to the techsupport and they told me that its not best with AMD, and they designed it for intel + i think that corsair is a much better brand name!

This is the ram to go with, great C7 1600MHz, works great with AMD (don't listen to people who say they don't... and when a company says "designed for intel" its just pure marketing) and its a great, great, great brand [:isamuelson:2]

I agree with gkay09 and the OP on the Muskin Blacklines as a ram choice.
I've read far too many forum post here and on other sites regarding problems with first time builders using ECO ram on AMD builds.
G.Skill even admits it may only run on CAS8 on many AMD boards.
It's not the most user friendly ram for the novice.

well, it really looks a great ram with great price, but i really saw these problem on the gskill forum on their website,
and some of the users was complaining that the ram doesnt work on the timing it should on his amd system, and they told him that their rams doesnt work as it should be with amd and they told him about other c8 memories to buy!

Hey, one more question about the motherboard, it says that it runs the crossfire on (x8 x8 mode) does it really make a big difference from (x16 x16) like in the 790fx motherboards?!

i think i got it form the that article, it really shows no big difference, but do you think the same result would apply with AMD system, plus i dont really understand what do you mean by (single chip graphic cards)....

Single chip graphic cards are the ones which have a single graphic chip onboard. Dual-chip ones are HD 5970, GTX295 and such, which have 2 graphic chips on a single card...
