More about build look
  1. That build looks pretty good. If you have any money left, I'd look to upgrade your motherboard, ASRock has a kinda' bad reputation, but I've heard they're getting better.
  2. I was thinking about this MOBO

    ASUS M4A77TD AM3 AMD 770 ATX
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131603

    but then I have to lower my mem to 1333

    What do you think?
  3. The AsRocks are a decent budget board from my recent experience with them. Are you looking to have crossfire option in the future? if so I would try this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157198 Also gives you the SATA 6 and USB 3.0 options down the road.
  4. I'd actually go with what imaurer (ASRock 870 Extreme3) has suggested rather than the ASUS M4A77TD. The ASUS only supports 1066 DDR3 without overclocking, which is pretty slow. The ASRock also has more expansion slots.
  5. The board needs to be less than $75 so thats out of my budget :(

    Thanks for the thought though!

    Check this one out then: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157195 still has SATA 6 and USB 3.0 just no crossfire option

    Edit: fixed link :)
  7. Or even better save 20 bucks with this combo and get the crossfire Asrock :D http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.593504
  8. And I'm not a expert on high end GPU's but any reason why your going with the 5870 over the 6950 which I've seen a lot of people flashing up to a 6970.
  9. Hawt!

    But I bought the 5870 last week when it was $200

    Here is my updated build

    Yeah I had thought about that but the 2gb 5870 was on shell shocker for $200 w/ $20 MIR.

    Cant beat a $180 2gb 5870 right?

  12. Ahh yeah that was a good deal :) Only way I really see to shave off any money is to go with this PSU if 550 watts is enough for your build http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341022&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL030111&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL030111-_-EMC-030111-Index-_-PowerSupplies-_-17341022-L0E use email promo EMCKGKJ68 and its 60 bucks 40 after rebate
