Solved New AMD build please take a look Tags: Systems Product Last response: March 1, 2011 12:59 PM in Systems Share flatbaler87 February 28, 2011 10:25:27 PM Hey guys! Uploaded with ImageShack.us Please let me know if you see any issues or have any suggestions. Thank you! More about : amd build mugabuga February 28, 2011 10:45:29 PM 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. m 0 l flatbaler87 February 28, 2011 10:52:18 PM I was thinking about this MOBO ASUS M4A77TD AM3 AMD 770 ATX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but then I have to lower my mem to 1333 What do you think? m 0 l Related resources My first build, AMD or Intel, take a look please.... - Forum Please take a look at my new PC build - Forum New AMD Build Complete Take A Look - Forum Time for a new build, YAY!

Get the answer imaurer269 February 28, 2011 10:58:25 PM 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=N82E168... Also gives you the SATA 6 and USB 3.0 options down the road. m 0 l mugabuga February 28, 2011 11:10:56 PM 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. m 0 l flatbaler87 February 28, 2011 11:13:02 PM The board needs to be less than $75 so thats out of my budget Thanks for the thought though! m 0 l Best solution imaurer269 March 1, 2011 12:33:27 AM Check this one out then: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... still has SATA 6 and USB 3.0 just no crossfire option Edit: fixed link Share imaurer269 March 1, 2011 12:53:07 AM Or even better save 20 bucks with this combo and get the crossfire Asrock http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... m 0 l imaurer269 March 1, 2011 1:04:41 AM 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. m 0 l flatbaler87 March 1, 2011 1:08:29 AM Hawt! But I bought the 5870 last week when it was $200 Here is my updated build I am $15 over budget.

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? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l imaurer269 March 1, 2011 12:59:18 PM 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=N82E168... use email promo EMCKGKJ68 and its 60 bucks 40 after rebate m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
