Opinions/input on homebuilt Tags: Homebuilt Systems Product Last response: September 16, 2011 7:27 AM in Systems Share maxbosiljevac September 15, 2011 3:55:32 AM I'm considering building a PC from scratch and I wanted to ask the community here for your opinions on what I've come up with so far. GPU: MSI R6870 Twin Frozr II Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor MOBO: BIOSTAR A870 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) I haven't chosen a PSU, hard drive or a tower case yet because I don't know anything about them so your recommendations are welcome. The PC will be used for mostly gaming and AutoCAD, Revit, etc. More about : opinions input homebuilt AbdullahG a b B Homebuilt system September 16, 2011 5:55:43 AM HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My OCD got to me. I had to match the case brand withe the PSU brand (and vice versa). Overall, you have a nice build. However, I would recommend an HD 6850. It consumes less power and there isn't a huge performance margin between the cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... AdrianPerry a b B Homebuilt system September 16, 2011 7:27:01 AM There's also not a huge price difference between the cards. Stick with the 6870. $154 after rebate Sapphire 6870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
