  1. Looks good! If you're going to OC, you'll want a good cpu cooler but thats all I can think of. That RAM is great btw.
  2. I would order that case ASAP. Even if you don't decide on the rest of the build. I picked one up yesterday and the price only lasts into today, or if/when it sells out. I wasn't going to miss out on that deal.

    It is a nice looking build, if you are looking to crossfire later then you may want to swap to the ASrock 870 (which is $110 now :(, up from 90) for the 8x8 lanes. If not that build looks great.
  3. Sweet deal thank you.
  4. If you're not doing any workstation tasks the X6 is a waste of money. It's actually worse for gaming than the x4's.

    Better PSU for same price after MIR
    XFX 650
  5. Ya think im going to get the 955 cpu instead but trying to find a better Motherboard i have that one already an it gave me video card problems is there any other nice motherboard for under $130
  6. This is the one I referenced before, the price keeps hopping between $110 and $90, it has already gone back and forth a couple times since the end of December.

    Crossfire capable, USB3, SATA3.
  7. Hmm ok. Still kinda stuck on what Motherboard to get.
  8. Looking on newegg for a motherboard is scary. So many ppl say bad things about them, an i dont want to buy a problem.
