  1. Spending so much on everything except CPU, poor him, wat did he do wrong. Get an X4.

    CPU + MOBO: AMD Phenom II X4 955 B.E 3.2GHz + GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD5 AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0

    GPU: EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit
    wait a bit for AMD 69xx series cards releasing in a week approx. For new builds always go for single GPU so u have option to add another later and not being stuck. Wat resolution are u gona have?

    Also get a Full Tower case if u can and dont buy SSD rite now if other components are getting affected.
  2. advantages of full tower cases are what?
  3. ok then i guess i 'll wait for SB and Amd 69xx
  4. Best answer
    there will always be new pc parts coming out that are better then the others before
    if you have the money to go for it by all means do:) but just saying getting a top notch cpu now and comparing it SB wont be a huge diff... 10 to 15% performance
    and even then u can OC ur cpu that u can buy now to hit 4 ghz and more with some patience and tweaking and save urself some bucksssss $$$ unless u dont care about $$$ :P
  5. thnx for the info but i prefer to wait since i can get more money
