  1. The problem is the memory , you choosed quad channel memory , is not for AMD build is for intel socket 2011.
    You need this memory :
    If your build is for gaming 8GB RAM is more than enough. From 8GB you will use maximum 40 - 50%. For gaming 8GB buy this :
  2. If you can, please put the post in the format listed on the link below, it will be easier to help you then. Just skimming through the tabs, though (and not sure I openned all of them) I didn't see any cooling options, and I'm not sure that stock cooling will handle the rig your looking the build though. In the meantime, I'll I'm not really sure if you need 1200W of power, but I'm building your computer on Cyber Power now to see what's the base power requirements before overclocking and such.
  3. ok thanks the motherboad can support 4 ram slots and money isent a issue at the moment can i buy of of them so it will be 4x4 and put that into my system
  4. This is a good tool for deciding how much power you will require. Just remember though, to leave yourself enough headroom for when you overclock/upgrade at a later date.
  5. It is best to go with 2 4 gb sticks. Cut the psu to850w.

  7. Would be a lot easier if ya named the components ....saving us from RSI doing the clickety click thing

    I can't make a case for an AMD based build for over $800 US

    The AX1200 is way way way oversized, 850 watts needed for two 570's......XFX Core Edition 850 or HX850 from Corsair

    Make sure the 570 is not one of the ones with the 4+2 VRM designs. I don't think VGA has one.

    The 570 recommended above is actually a reference design PCb so it will have the same VRM problems that other 570s do, the only 570s available in the US that have a strong VRM design that I am aware of are the Asus DCII, the MSI TFIII, and the Palit Sonic / Platinum. The 560ti should not have any such issues to be concerned about.

    Finally dump the tall, toothy heat sinks. The only cooling effect of these big coolers is that they "look cool". While they served a purpose (when they were effective) w/ DDR2, they are absolutely useless on DDR3.
    At more than 2" tall in certain areas the Corsair Vengeance could pose a problem for users like me who use large coolers such as the Scythe Mugen 2. I was able to use the Corsair Vengeance only after I mounted the fan on my cooler on the backside. Size is definitely a concern with heat spreaders of this size and therefore I encourage users to check that they will have enough space under their heatsinks before purchasing the Corsair Vengeance kit.
    The problem I have with the Corsair Vengeance is the same I have with many kits of RAM on the market. Companies insist on putting large coolers on their RAM and it limits the choice in CPU heatsinks that can be used within users system. DDR3 does not require these elaborate coolers with its lower voltages which translate to lower temperatures then RAM saw during the DDR, and DDR2 era. Corsair is correcting this with low profile versions of its Vengeance line but ultimately I would like to see the average size of coolers drop instead of having to look for specific low profile versions of a memory line.
