New Build. Need Verification before getting first part (prob mobo)

Hey have been oggling, mixing-matching, reading reviews, comparing prices, and tweaking trying to optimize system (first but should have built this years ago) while in admittedly tight budget.

Here's the parts
https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/MySavedWishDetail.aspx?ID=11783649

If anyone sees any red flags PLS would really appreciate someone mentioning them like..

"Oh that graphics card dies quickly"
or
"That mobo is better for..." or whatever considerations.

Otherwise seems good to me and I look forward to getting mobo (it will unfortunatley take me awhile to acquire the parts because of financial budget but I at least want to make sure all the parts are right). Thanks.

  1. -Is power supply adequate?
    -limitations of graphics card?

    Most all parts were the result of tweaking an interest and reading tons of reviews. Am excited about this but want to make sure compatibility is present and Am I missing anything? Will I need a

    wireless card?
    ethernet card?
    sound card?

    Your newegg wishlist is empty. Also make sure you make it open to the public...as in Public Wishlist on there so peeps here can see it. But when I click on your link...it says "empty".
  3. Cant see your wishlist buddy.
  4. thanks for checking, mates!!

    Will fix the wishlist in a jiff.

    Prob just as well b/c I had AMD ATX mobo and AMD Phenom II deneb.

    but....

    I was thinking about swapping those with

    i5 2405s

    and a micro atx (still asus ftw!)

    and changing case I like the new rosewell (it's height might fit this makeshift desk better AND it ahs usb 3.0 in frontside port!)

    -----------

    I can't seem to get newegg wishlists public. I selected "share" but doesn't work. So here' the build(s)

    My Intel build. I had second thoughts on the Phenom II amd (how does i5 2405s compare to AMD Phenom II Deneb? how is the integrated gpu on 2405s?) I like this new case Rosewill (changed from an antec). MUCH more. it has usb 30.0 in front (I've got an AWESOME external 3.0 usb toshiba 1tb that I love). I've never had more than 1tb external and never more than 500gb internal. HAHA!! This will be twice as much ram, 4 times as much internal HD, and the fastest cpu I've ever had (and I've had over a dozen computers!) And my first rig!! OMFG So psyched!!!!!!! I want to order one of these parts (prob the power supply) by the end of this month (it will take me awhile to afford all parts (prob by nov this year though!!!) to start the process whoo-whoo! :bounce: :D :o :ouch:


    Key Questions
    --Is power supply adequate?
    --(huge one), the 2405s i5 says it has "heat sink and fan". I like the idea of installing my own fan (hyper 212) so...would I need a cpu fan wiht 2405s? if I got 2405s and hyper 212, would cooler master hyper 212 be unusable?
    ---cpu and gpu quality is my main concern. The ram and HD will be massive upgrades from everything I've ever worked iwth. sweet!
    --How does the intel build (no gpu) compare to the AMD build? the prices are very comparable (the case, HD, ram, power supply, and fan are identical in both builds).

    INTEL Build (newest one, updated from amd build)

    AMD Build. (swapped a few things, like Antec case for this new Rosewill) but this was what I originally linked, had second thoughts because of no familiarity with AMD and am leaning more toward the i5 build.

  5. hhmm bump??????????

    hello?

    Okay on second thoughts I think I like the AMD build (first one).

    Some rudimentary concerns/consideratiosn however.


    Will I need an ethernet card?
    What's up with te gpu ? I plan to use at least 2-3 monitors. (I will be getting USB adapters though so I can plug in monitors to usb). I saw some really high-end graphics cards (wayyyy otuside budget) that had multipel ports (I think DVI). I think this looks good though.
