I want to build a configuration for a friend with a budget somewhere around 5-600euro. This is what I have until now:
Hard disk Samsung 1 TB SATA-II 7200RPM 32MB rpm Spinpoint F3 Corsair XMS3 rev. A 8GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9 Dual Channel kit DVD-Writer Samsung SH-222AB Inter-Tech SL-700 700W Case Segotep SG-631R Red MB ASRock 970 Extreme3 AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz box // might want the eight core, though I don't think it will be that much of a difference in performance. (any ideas?)
And finally the gpus that I have to choose between:
The first one has 1gb more of ram, which is good, for a measly 19euros more, but the 2nd one has a higher frequency that it runs on. The Processor runs at 820Mhz instead of 775Mhz and the memory frequency runs at 4400Mhz instead of 4000Mhz.
Also, this PC won't have a monitor bigger than 1920x1080. And yes, it will be used for gaming.
More aboutwhat choose 6850 6850
get the OC one since the 2 gb will not ever be used at 1920x1080. Also I would suggest against the FX6100 as a phenom II will out perform it a lot.
Get a fast phenom II x4 and OC it, it will be a lot better in games.
Thanks for the reply, how come will it outperform the FX-6100?
