Here I am again with another PC build:
CPU: AMD Phenom II 955 *Lets face it, the other X4s are exactly the same just at a higher factory clock, apart from the 925
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7 *I will want to crossfire eventually
Memory: Corsair 8GB Kit (4x2GB) CMX8GX3M4A1333C9 *Ram is yummy, so i went with 8GB instead of 6gb
Case: Cooler Master HAF X *To fit that monster motherboard in, also i like it anyway
Optical Drive: LG GH22NS50 *Blu-ray is over rated
Video Card: Gigabyte HD5870 - GV-R587UD-1GD *Its not like im gona be playing Crysis 2 on enthusiast anytime soon so that will do me fine for now.
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W *I will want to crossfire eventually
Hard Drive: Haven t made my mind up yet, most likely a Samsung spinpoint or WD caviar black.
Cooling: Ill get a 200mm fan for the top of the case since for some odd reason they only inculde 1 and 120mm for the VGA duct.
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Ill be playing Call of Duty: Black Ops on this and Crysis 2 when it comes out so as along as this runs them fine on 1920X1080@Medium settings its all good.
Im pretty sure this is all compatible with each other, if you have any suggestions that would be great keep in mind the $2000 budget.
I really would like to wait for the new AMD and ATI CPU's and GPU's but im impatient lol. Does anyone know if the new series will be any better performance wise and best value for the dollar etc... I want this build to be flexible so I can add up to 4 graphics cards eventually so hence the 1000w PSU and the motherboard and case. Is it really worth waiting until 2011 for the new stuff?
