I'm still learning to build my own computer, I think I almost have the hang over it. Could someone tell me if these will work well together.

Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Already have, Windows 7 64bit, Radeon HD 5770, 2 WD internal HDD's and everything else. I just really need to upgrade my cpu/ram/mobo.

My Athlon x4 4200+ isn't cutting it anymore.

The board isnt going to want to support running memory that fast, you are better off getting a slightly slower kit for a lot cheaper since very few things are memory limited and the performance difference between 2000MHz and 1600MHz is pretty negligible.

Thanks for the speedy response.

The 2N command rate on that RAM wont be affected or affect the mobo, right?

And everything else looks good though, correct?

decent motherboard, just one 5770 short for CF :D 


Yea I plan on getting another when I get the mobo/cpu/ram. The 5770's are such a good bang for the buck.

Isn't the timing on that RAM a little low?

Do you guys think I should spend a little more on a better mobo? From what I see this mobo is an amazing deal...but I don't know for sure.

well considering AMD runs @ 1333 any higher speeds will have to be from overclocking..

thanks

$20 more for the 965 over the 955 is not worth it, it just has its multiplier increased by 1, the 955 has an unlocked multiplier so you can do that yourself, they also both overclock to about the same level so i definitely dont consider it worth an extra $20
