Hey all - I'm helping a friend pick out parts for a new build, and I'd appreciate any advice on what I've got so far. I've done this a couple times in the past but I'm not totally up to date with the latest hardware. Here's what I have so far:
Optical: LITE-ON Black 12X Blu-ray Burner with Blu-ray 3D feature SATA Model iHBS112 - OEM
Video: VisionTek Radeon HD 6870 900338 Video Card with Eyefinity
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W Power Supply
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4 ATX Intel Motherboard
HD: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Retail
So there it is. Seems like it should all work out to me, but if anybody could check it over, or suggest better parts, we'd really appreciate it. Money's not really an issue. He wants top-line but not bleeding edge. THANK YOU!
All 6-series “Cougar Point” chipsets, including H67 and P67, are affected. The issue is a hardware design problem that causes high number of bit errors eventually device disconnection.
There is no software fix for this issue. All affected systems will need a motherboard replacement.
