  2. yeah please.... sorry too much links?
  3. Here what I think you should choose between:

    AMD Choice
    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103808
    MoBo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128510
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186
    CPU Cooler (for OCing if you want to): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181010

    Total: About $390

    Intel Choice
    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072
    MoBo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128520
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104166

    Total: About $360

    The AMD build offers support for AMD's upcoming CPU, Bulldozer. It supports both SLI and CrossFire, as well as enough money for a great CPU cooler. The Intel build offers the best performance by a very noticeable margin (the i5 2500K is currently the best CPU on the market for gaming), but sacrifices the 8GB of RAM you had in kind as well as SLI support (only CrossFire support). It will support the upcoming Ivy Bridge CPU's but only the 4 core version, not the 6 or 8 core versions. It does include a great CPU cooler as well, but if you want SLI support as well, you may have to give the CPU cooler up, but that would still make the Intel Build the best. You choose.
  4. so i skip X6 and and get X4 and wait for next gen like Bulldozer?

    i prefer AMD

    Which Brand good for mobo: Asus Gigabyte MSI
  5. The X4 OCed (you can easily reach 4.0GHz with good cooling) will last you a good amount of time until the need to upgrade. I would choose between ASUS or Gigabyte. MSI boards are fine, but ASUS and Gigabyte seem to build higher quality boards. When it comes to quality and performance, ASUS and Gigabyte boards do not differ by much. However, I found ASUS' UEFI BIOS the most attractive BIOS. It is easy to navigate as well.
  6. one more thing which series is better for mobo 880, 890, 990 GX or FX? im looking for AMD+ which support for 8 core
  7. The newest chipset is the 900 series. I would go with that considering you get the added feature of SLI without bad Nvidia chipsets. In CrossFire, the PCI-E lans would be 16x and 4x, not 8x and 8x. The ASUS would be at the same level as the Gigabyte, so if you want to save $5 get the Gigabyte. if you want a the same features as well as a UEFI BIOS, get the ASUS.
  8. what the difference between X and FX

    which should i get for memory 4GB or 8GB?
  9. I am not sure what the difference is, but from what I've been told, there is no noticeable performance difference. As for RAM, 4GB is more than enough for most tasks. If you ever need more in the future, you can add more. I would just get 4GB of RAM to start with.
  10. ok i will get X4 and 4GB but G skill Sniper 8GB is on sale from newegg i think i will take that deal....http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231460

    but i cant decide which mobo to get Asus 990FX or Gigabyte 990FX

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514 -Gigabyte

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131736

    both price about $350 with X4 and 4GB
    - Asus
  11. Specs wise, the ASUS gets my vote. The price however, is a bit high, so I would get the Gigabyte. I doubt there would be any performance difference that you will notice.
  12. thanks abdullahG i think i will go for X4 and Gigabyte i will read more reviews between and make decision before this week cuz im going to order it soon..
