    Typical fanboy response. As if AMD doesn't have mobo/cpu combos that are great deals. You can get a mobo and X4 955BE for the price of an overclockable Intel quad alone.

    I would not suggest the i3 over the X6 if you want to overclock and play modern games. Modern games use 3-4 cores these days and the i3 can't overclock.

    Instead of the X6, go with a faster X4 like the 955BE (was $105 yesterday on newegg), or go with an Intel quad. Intel quads start at $185 for the slowest model and that model really doesn't allow overclocking.

    A faster X4 will game better than a X6 and it's cheaper. Make sure you get a AM3+ motherboard so you can upgrade to AMD's new cpu's due to release next month. If you don't buy a AM3+ board then you will never be able to upgrade the cpu.

    If you want a Intel quad that overclocks, the cheapest model is the 2500K which is $219.

    thats an answer i need :D do you have any mobo recommendations have the feeling this one fails xD
  7. $185 for 955BE and AM3+ mobo (after $20 rebate) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.693504

    This one supports quad crossfire/sli. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.691286

    Add some 1.5v DDR3-1333 or 1600 and your good to go.

    I probably saved you enough money to go with a 560ti and a good quality psu.

    What psu you plan by the way?
  8. i tried to change my posty e few secs ago that i needed an psu too xD i have an site to calculate your wattage but dotn know wat to fill in
    do you know any dutch sites for the parts you mentiond (www.???.nl) dont have an CC
  9. 1 thing extualy the mobo and graphiccard togethher cost 400 euro and my budget is 550 xD
  10. maybe a list of parst you rec. cause im confused now 0_o
  11. What are you confused about?

    I live in Florida, so I can't help you out with a Dutch site, I can only suggest to you good parts at a great price, not sure what those prices are in the Netherlands though.
  12. cant explain its just wich parts of my selection should ie delete now and wich not and..
    your mobo-graphiccard 'set' is 400$(euro) thats almost at top of my budget
    0_o
  13. oh wait
    that link is with chipset 0_o srry thats my confusion
  14. chipset is processor xD
  15. ok last multi post for now xD

    this is in my cart at newegg now:

    SAMSUNG CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model SH-222AB - OEM

    Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

    SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 HD204UI 2TB SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    McAfee Antivirus 2011 - 1 User for System Builders - OEM xD its in my cart for some reason and its free !

    MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    and last but not least AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX

    is this your recommendation maybe an cheaper case ? and advice in psu please
  16. I didn't link any graphics card.

    Chipset is not cpu, chipset is the chip on the motherboard.

    Why do you have Newegg cart, I thought you were in Netherlands?

    Why don't you have a motherboard in your cart??

    Keep in mind GTX560 is not the same as GTX560ti, although it's still a good and very overclockable card.

    You don't want a green hdd, they only run 5400/5900rpm. You want a 7200rpm drive.

    Don't bother with McAfee, Microsoft Security Essentials is all you need and it's free.

    A good inexpensive case is the Antec 300 or Antec 300 Illusion (with lights). It's on sale at Newegg right now for $45 shipped.

    Since your in Netherlands I can only suggest psu brands, not links to special deals. I suggest Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX.

  18. I don't speak Dutch and I don't know the price conversions so simple answer is no. Sorry.
  19. ok i already was looking for the same parts at the sites i gave you and i am coming far but i have 1 question left how many watt do i need for the parts and i think im going for corsair psu i thought i needed for about 500 watt (maybe thats an stupid number) but this gonna be my first build so i wanna be sure about everything :P
