Total for this build is $927.93 and you can add another 6950 later for crossfire or if you have the funds now you could do that now. The SSD is for the OS and would enhance the overall performance of the Pc.
yea i know the Sandy Bridges are better. But ive been usimg AMD since i was in High School, i have nothing against intel its just old habits die hard. I wont be doing hardcore gaming just playing some MMO's. Thanks for the build info. Will the 6950 be able to actually handle the 32 inch tv playing on max or ultra for SWTOR?
My advice? Get rid of the SSD. It's overpriced for what you're going to be doing. You're not going to notice much of an improvement if your primary function is to play MMOs on the computer. It'll shave off some boot time, but a few seconds (to me anyway) isn't worth $200. Take the cash and buy a better CPU like
Remember, the rule of thumb with the Bulldozer chips is to take the number of "cores" and divide by two to actually find out how many "modules (real cores)" are on the chip. I wouldn't go any less than the FX6100 personally. Otherwise I'd recommend the Phenom II X6 1100T.
I bought the Sabertooth for a secondary PC over the Black Friday sales and I can say it is an excellent board.
Your faith is missplaced as AMD is no longer going after Intel and trying to be king of the cpu hill. They are going to be focusing on the mainstream cpu's , smartphones , tablets and the cloud. Whatever is in the pipeline for the high end will be the last.
