Phenom II X4 965 Black Build

Hi everyone,

Building a new computer for my kid and I was hoping some of you could look it over. I am happy with the CPU I’m using but will the MOBO and the PSU stand up to Crossfire at a later date?

Thanks,

    Yes everything is compatible and you'll be able to run two 7850 since the motherboard Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX , 3-Way CrossFireX and CrossFireX

    Supports NVIDIA Quad SLI and SLI also the PSU you chose also will support running two 7850 and it is very good and reliable it's made by Seasonic which is one of the best if not the best power supply makers in the world P.S. I would suggest you buy low profile ram to avoid the chance of conflict with your aftermarket cooler any of these will do RAM:G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR
