Ok since I recently fried my motherboard I am needing to rebuild. I use my computer for gaming. I have an Antec 900 case, Rosewill 750W, Seagate 1T HDD, WD 150G Raptor, Sceptre X24 monitor . I am running Windows 7 64bit Ultimate. I would like to stay around $500 for MB, CPU, GPU, and RAM. Is this posible? I have 2 9600GT cards that I can run SLI and upgrade later. I was thinking i5 with OC, but don't know about MB and RAM. Any recommendations?
You didn't install it correctly otherwise it would not have fried your mobo
I installed 'it' correctly, it was in my rushed process of putting everything else back together that I either shorted the board with dust or static. Or maybe I needed an excuse to upgrade. Anyway.....
I just looked and I had my PSU incorrect it's a rosewill xtream RX850-S-B so its 850W not 750W.
Ok so I've decided on i5 3750k CPU. And Samsung Extreme Low Voltage 30nm UDIMM 8 Dual Channel Kit DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM MV-3V4G3D/US. I can get both on Amazon for $262. Still cant decide on mobo and if I should upgrade GPU now or later. Was kicking aroud the idea of the ASUS Sabertooth Z77 TUF board but that would take me to my price limit.
