[CPU And Motherboard] Do These Sound Good?

Hey guys, I just recently had a problem with my computer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQ0mO...5IZaVqGZyVjE&f
eature=inbox) if you wanna watch wat is wrong go for it. But here's the main subject of this topic, do you guys think that ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 and the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition are a good match for good 3d rendering, and gaming? If you guys have any other suggestions for a motherboard/processor, please feel free to tell me. I would like to keep the budget under 600 dollars (376 pounds).

  1. If that 600$ budget is just for the processor and motherboard then don't bother with AMD. Grab an Intel i7 2600k and a good motherboard along with some healthy amount of ram. That will form a killer setup.
  2. Darnnit, I'm sorry, I just recently to cut the budget back to $450 for the processor/Mobo since I'm buying a new graphics card, memory, case, etc. So for that budget, is my choice good enough? Or should I still go for a different one?
  3. You can still get an i7 2600K and a decent motherboard for 450$.

    That board is good enough for gaming using a single video card. If you need multiple video card support (crossfire/SLI) then you need to look for some other board.
  4. U.S pricing ..

    Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 870 Socket AM3 £99.99
    Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition $189.99
    Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CAS8 1.5V $84.99
    Cooler Master Hyper 212+ $49.99

    Can handle everything I throw at it and I haven't even bothered with an o/c.
    A Large cooler like the Hyper will interfere with closest memory slot due to memory not being low profile, but 8GB is more than enough.
  5. hmm. K I'm gonna keep looking and I might even buy the i7 you were recommending. But is the one I was originally looking at good enough or is it not?
  6. Here is a comparison between the two processors -

    As you can see, the i7 2600K beats the X6 1090T in every test. I do agree that it costs a good 130$ more but IMO, since you can afford it, it is totally worth it. Another option is to go for the i5 2500K. It is just a little bit above the X6 1090T in terms of price but has impressive performance numbers.

  7. well. Damnit. Idk if I can afford the whole thing, I mean. I really see the difference, and I'm kinda torn. :( . Would this processor work for the price and everything? Or can you recommend another AMD processor since I found the motherboard pretty cheap, so ye.
  8. Do you think that I would be needing a new power supply to if I were to buy what I had originally wanted to buy? I have a 650w, and have a ati radeon 5770. Would I need like a 800w to run the amd processor/mobo and everything?
  9. Best answer
    You won't require a PSU upgrade. 650 watts is plenty for any single video card build. Btw if you already have the motherboard then no point going for anything else. The X6 1090T will do it for you.
