    No I was just wondering what psu i should buy, and does the gpu support the motherboard and do i need the fan on the cpu?
  3. The 955 is actually a better buy than the 840 as both are similarly priced...

    Mobo - Are you going to buy the 790FX board ? You should know that there are newer board available and most probably by June, AMD will launch the next-gen boards and CPUs,...

    Graphics card - The HD 6850/ the 6870 would be better options,...

    CASE - Check out the NZXT Gamma, it would cost similar and offer better airflow

    PSU - For a single card setup like the above, get a 500-550W PSU from Antec/Corsair/ Seasonic/ Silverstone/ OCZ/ CM Real power or Silent PRO series,...

    CPU Cooler - If overclocking, then get an aftermarket CPU cooler,... Cooler Master Hyper 212+ would be a very good option,...
  4. for 1000$ budget u should be able to get a i5 and 6950 based system easily.
    which would out perform this build by a large margin and last u a lot longer.
    Heres what it would look like

    How fixed are u on this build?
    If its for gaming SSDs dont help gaming performance.
  5. it's just that the components for a custom pc are alot expensive in Finland, i dont know why it just is, and i chose the amd cuz its cheaper
  6. Well Okay. Go with the 955BE then and a 880 based mobo.(AM3+)
    I 'd also get a better Case a haf 912 / antec 300 / rosewill challenger. Cheap cases with good air flow.
    For a CPU cooler Skythe Mugen 2 Rev B. (also called SCMG 2100 I believe can some one confirm this?)
    If this rig is for gaming u should definitely get a better GPU. a 5850 / 6850 would be a good starting point. Personally I 'd get a 6950 2GB.
