I am planning to build my first PC and I need some help in feeling comfortable with the rig I put together.
Here's what I have come up with. Its an AMD X6 1055T. I have considered X4 also but thought its worth going for the X6 for only $20 more.
Appreciate if the experts on this board can tell me if its a good rig and whether the components will be compatible.
Approximate Purchase Date: This week
Budget Range: 600 Before Rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: photo editing, video editing, surfing the internet, watching movies, multiple apps running in the background (they do slow down my core 2 duo quite a bit currently)
Parts Not Required: monitor, speakers, OS
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, amazon.com
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: Looking for AMD Phenom II (preferably x6)
Overclocking: Light (want to get 1055T to 3.2 GHZ)
SLI or Crossfire: Not at this time
Additional Comments: I really want the system to last so quality and upgradability are very important as well as future proofing.
