First Time PC Build Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: January 5, 2012 10:18 PM in Systems Share gordonmatthewgray January 5, 2012 2:23:02 AM I'm building a pc for the first time hopefully using these components. I just wanted to get a more expert opinion before I buy anything. I was particularly worried about GPU, CPU, and motherboard compatibility. So far, I was thinking about getting: 1) Sunbeam AC9B-T Transparent Clear Acrylic ATX Mid-Tower (Comp. Case) 2) Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" (Hard Drive) 3) Samsung BX2350 23" LED Backlight (LCD Monitor) 4) ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD (Motherboard) 5) ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (GPU) 6) Corsair Professional Series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 /EPS12V 2.91 SLI (PSU) 7) G.Skil Value Series 8GB (2x4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (RAM) 8) AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core (Processor) Any and all help will be appreciated. Like I said, this is the first time I've built a computer and could really use some input.

The performance increase would be worth it by far. I would go for this mobo: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... And this cpu: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... ****For GPU**** It would be SILLY!!! to buy anything but the new 7970 if that's in your price range... Look here for additional info: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7970-benc... Or the card you have there is fine.. Plus if it's for gaming... pay the extra 20 bucks or so and get a full tower. Or get a good brand case like: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... Thats what I have to say anyways. SR-71 Blackbird January 5, 2012 10:18:57 PM This topic has been moved from the section Computer Brands to section Systems by Area51reopened Can't find your answer ?
