New AMD Gaming Build, opinions? Tags: Homebuilt AMD Systems Product Last response: November 22, 2010 10:05 AM in Systems Share pyrogx November 22, 2010 2:46:15 AM I have put together a build that i believe will work fine, but want a final input and/or changes. Yes i know its an nVidia card, but it works with AMD. Nothing wrong with cross matching. Bundle(CPU, RAM, MOBO,and HDD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I...

Mark Heath November 22, 2010 10:05:45 AM Overall, pretty good, but I'd go for a different (more stable and reliable) PSU. Look at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That series of PSUs cannot pull their rated wattage: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eX... http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eX... With the GPU, consider switching to this Gigabyte version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Cheaper (plus there's the MIR) and since it uses dual fans it should run cooler. Also, if you count the shipping costs for your monitor mb consider this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Picture quality is supposed to be good for a TN panel, plus LED back lit helps with contrast ratios a bit. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
