My Build - 3D rendering/Gaming

Not sure if these parts will work together.
Or if I can get better products for cheaper.

(NOTE: I'm australian and using

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
ASRock 890GM Pro3 Motherboard Rev.2
ASUS Radeon HD6670 1GB
G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 (Dual Channel)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB ST31000524AS
Aereon Asroc ASC-620C 620W Power Supply
Aywun Game Series G05 Case

Note this is costing me roughly $650-$700 for allt he parts.

  1. A 6670 isn't a very good card for gaming or 3D rendering if you want to max the games/run programs quickly. I would suggest downgrading the CPU to a Phenom II X4 955 and upgrading the GPU to a 6950 or a 560 ti (560 ti only if you want to OC).

    I don't know the price you're paying for that mobo, but in the US I wouldn't pay any more than ~$100 for a good one.
  2. what kind of rendering and with which program ?

    I'd be using 3Ds max & Inventor. And I'll hopefully start making basic 3D video games soon, But I will be making Heavy 3D animations in the near future.

    At that budget I doubt you can do better than the 6 core phenom . 3DS max can use the extra cores

    I would make sure your motherboard can run the next generation AMD processors . The board has to be AM3+ spec . I cant even find the one you have picked on pccasegear to check the price , but Id go with either of these which guarantee upgradability because of the 970 series chipset


    Probably the gigabyte , because you are unlikely to need two graphics cards .
  5. Ohk, Thanks.

    Btw it looks like they took down the 890, But It was $105, So upgrading the Gigabyte is'nt a problem.

    Just to make sure, These parts all work together right?
