Looking for any suggestions, improvements, recommendations on the current build I have planned I have already purchased my graphics card which is the Geforce gtx460 so that's done with as for the other components here's what I'm looking at
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955
Mobo: ASUS M4A78T-E (only because it's posted as a bundle with the 955 on NCIX.com) having difficulty deciding on a motherboard, since there seems to be so many differing opinions, ultimately looking for something that is good, cheap and compatible
1) note that because you've chosen an amd build, you wont be able to sli your 460 in the future.
2)ram is iffy because its slower and its timings arnt that great. If you grab some g.skill for $10 more it'll be 1600mhz cl8, assuming your is in the $70ish range.
3) Try the cm hyper 212+, its high performance air cooling for $30
4) eco harddrive = slow (if your really cared about eco friendly switch to an amd gpu lol)
The problem with that amd board is that it wont support sli, in fact i dont think any newer boards will. So if you want that option open you'll need to either switch to an intel build or get a ati card instead.
