NEVER EVER GET IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. they are terrible! go with Intel for the CPU. they are better in every way. that liquid cooler is the free one. its crap. go with a fan. Hyper EVo 212 or thermaltake FRIo are better and easier to maintain. i would try and get "branded" components. so where it says "major brand..." i would instead select a brand (theres always a choice for a few quid more). these changes may cost you 50 more, but you'll have a much much better and more importantly, reliable, machine... | Report abuse Laney2w July 7, 2012 4:29:01 PM thanks for replying, this is an early look at what to get what CPU do you suggest? i5? also there is no option for diffrent brand for the 6850, i may go with PC specialist as i get a better idea of what i need. | Report abuse mojorisin23 July 9, 2012 1:59:44 PM i5-3570k is best (replacing the i5-2500k - which is still good and probably a better choice if youre on a budget). Also, get the memory in a 2x4gb config. try another build on there. get a branded PSU as well, no more than 650W if youre not planning on Xfire. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Early idea for base build.> Related ressources: ForumEarly 2011 Macbook Pro, Strange problems with gaming ForumEarly adapter syndrome: Help with my FX-8350 setup ForumBIG TIME CABINETS - Early Bally cabs available Forum4870X2 following the trend - early extinction ForumAMD 65nm in production now(5 months early ) ForumP3's better than early P4's? is it true or false?
