    MOBO: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1396537&sku=B450-2433 (Please suggest better MOBO for overclocking that is in the same price range or the cheapest one that is capable of it)

    Planning to buy all of it today/tommorow, Thanks


    I'm assuming this is a budget gaming build.
    you can't OC a G630 CPU fist off. the only intel LGA 1155 CPU that can be OC'd are the "K" series ones.
    Additionally only Z and P series motherboards support OC'ing

    Good pick on the GPU.

    suggestions to your build.

    I wouldn't trust my system to a $15 PSU. get a solid 80+ PSU these are the lowest cost ones i saw on the tigerdirect.

    you also don't need 2x4gb of ram, 2x2Gb is just fine.

    another thought, if it is in your budget - go with a G8XX CPU. the G6xx only supports PC1066 Ram, the G8xx supports PC1333
  2. Thanks, for the suggestions I changed the ram but another things is since the fan comes with 4 fans would I have enough room/slots for it? And would I be able to overclock my RAM/GPU?
  3. It doesn't look too bad. You want 1.5v ram for Sandy Bridge, not 1.65v.

    If I were you I would fill out the new build form in the new build section of the forum if you want advice on components.

    I'm not sure what you are talking about ^^

    GPU yes, Ram no. like i said the G8xx CPU's support PC 1333/PC1066 and the G5xx only support PC1066. no overclocking
  5. Specs-wise, they're essentially the same. I would choose the 2nd one since they are cheaper.

    Also, try these websites to find where you can buy your parts cheaper:
    DirectCanada.com

    Wrong! always take 2 sticks over a single stick. the OP's setup supports dual channel memory. the performance gain of dual channel is significant. running on a single stick would be like having a big block V8 engine and putting a small 2 barrel carburetor on it instead of a 4 barrel or fuel injection.

    O wait.. Yup you are right. Assumed both were dual channel. My mistake. The first one would be better.
