Hi guys, I asked this in the system thread but no one's answering. I found a rig suggestion by JohnW22 and I thought of getting this, but can I make sure that they will work fine with each other, e.g. no lost functionality of CPU/graphics card, due to motherboard not supporting, or vice versa.

GigaByte Ultra Durable 3 GA-870A-UD3 - AMD - Socket AM3 PGA-941 http://stores.tomshardware.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=786662875/st=pop/sv=title/mode=toms_builder/

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Hexa Core http://stores.tomshardware.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=781600309/st=pop/sv=title/mode=toms_builder/

GeForce GTX 560 Ti http://stores.tomshardware.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=851728030/st=pop/sv=title/mode=toms_builder/

Secondly, I'm planning to ask my local store to select everything else for me (power supply, ram, etc) is there anything else I have to specify for them?

Thanks a lot!

okay, first of all what do you plan on using this computer for? if you are gaming, sandy bridge is the way to go, the hexa core is overkill UNLESS you plan on doing heavily threaded things. your mobo will be out of date in about half a year. if you want AMD then you should have a look at AM3+, but they are more expensive. also make sure your local store doesn't short change you on the PSU, cheap PSUs are going to damage your components, rather spend a bit more so it doesn't blow up on you, check the PSU on sites like JonnyGuru first, or you could find yourself buying another computer in a few months time...

sorry bout all the terms... i suggest a intel core i5-2500k (about $220 USD) or you could save $100 with the core i3-2100, cons of the i3 is less cores (can't multi task) and can't O/C (speed up the CPU by altering some settings) if you don't plan on O/Cing than go for the regular i5-2500 or a i5-2400. BTW the "k" makes a big difference... since you have a GTX 560ti you should look at a SLI capable board (one that lets you use two or more of that card) for the future upgrades, but this will require a 750w+ Power supply unit. i suggest the corsair TX-850. if you don't plan on SLI than you could save a bundle by getting a cheaper motherboard and PSU but as it stands get a ASrock extreme 4 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... if this is out of budget, go for this @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i hope this helps!

You should consider a good AM3+ board, especially one with SLi certification so you can use a second card latter on, if you want to go AMD that way you can drop in a bulldozer CPU latter. You have no such upgrade path with a regular AM3 board

ASRock 970 EXTREME4

If the build is only for gaming then you should consider going with a cheaper X4 like the 955BE for now. Hardly any games would benefit from the two extra cores. As the others have said though if you have the money for it you should consider an i5 2500k build as well, but it's up to you.
