Hey Everyone im doing a budget build from newegg and i need some opinions. First of all heres what i got ready so far let me know if this will be good to run most games atm and coming out soon.
Cooler Master Elite 430 Black Case
GIGABYTE 990X UD3 AM3+ SATA 6GB/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD MOBO
Cooler Master Silent Pro M700 SLI Certified Modular PSU 700 watts
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 125w Quad Core CPU
ADATA XPG Gaming Series 4GB DDR3 1600 Ram 2x2Gb sticks, will be running 2 sets for 8GBs Total
EVGA Geforce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked Edition 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 running in "SLI" x2
Cooler Master R4 120mm Blue LED Case Fans.
Just wondering if that build even with the Quad core will run most things now and is it worth the budget build. Total is around 700$ right within my price range. Let Me know.
so at this time, im hoping to get the build done by christmas or sooner its more exciting building this then i ever thought it was gonna be lol. So will i be able to run mostly every game atm with a single 460 and the quad core till i get 2 or i might just save for another week and grab the second card
Get the x4 955 instead and just up the multiplier by 1 to get the 965's speed. They all overclock to around the same point. best part is the 955 is $10 cheaper plus newegg has a $15 off promo code currenlty for a total of $25 savings! That like getting your DVD drive for free
edit - I would also reciommend going with a 2x4 ram over two 2x2's. From an OC standpoint there is less possible issues when using only 2 sticks of ram plus you can easily go to 16gb ram in the future whereas with the dual 2x2's you would need to replace them all.
