Getting ready to order
Jul 11, 2012, 1:39 AM
Budget build that a 14 year old is paying for himself haha :-)
I ordered a stick of 4gb of ram yester day and I have a Zalman Z11 case, Corsair 430w V2 and il reuse my 320gb HDD (clean install of Win 7)
I plan on getting a 7850 if my PSU can power it without replacing it
I dont have much money D: ($130)
This is the RAM I ordered
I saw that it wasnt compatible on the mobo's site but im pretty positive that it will
- Thank You

I'm getting a GPU later on when I have more money. I was wondering if this setup I chose (CPU+MOBO) would be alright... well the motherboard
Jul 11, 2012, 1:56 AM
Well at tight budgets a H61 isn't a bad choice and certainly no loss for a stock/no OC rig
Jul 11, 2012, 1:59 AM
Do you think the power supply I have would power a 7850? The PCIe 6 pin has 28 amps I believe...
My PSU and powering 5 fans lol

lawls at your situation
id wait for a ivy bridge i3 or the ivy bridge refreshes. im sure you can survive a couple more months on the current system
the 430w should handle the 7850 fine as long as it has enough amperage. the max power you can draw is like 200w given how little hardware you throw into the rig
get this pentium instead. there isnt noticeable performance increase from 100mhz

Naw Naw dawg I have an Athlon 64 X2 and 1gb RAM I isnt want to run on dis still (LOOOL) and that CPU was $55 yesterday
I'll change to that then
Jul 11, 2012, 2:08 AM
And I'll be on 720p when I upgrade my GPU
Jul 11, 2012, 2:16 AM
wooooooow that is old skool. my dads sledgehammer amd takes about 5min to get to the home screen
just go ahead and get the new parts. id check newegg and us.ncix.com for deals of the day. i got a set of gskill snipers and a mushkin chronos deluxe 240gb this way
Jul 11, 2012, 2:25 AM
Il go to CVS again and get myself a prepaid card tomorrow but im only getting the CPU first or should I deposit a large amount on the card :0
Jul 11, 2012, 3:20 AM
Do you think the RAM will work? It says on the website that it's not compatible but I've read that the ram would work unless its 1.5v or what ever :0
Jul 11, 2012, 11:01 AM
you should get 1.5v or lower. anything beyond that eventually frys your memory controller or make it last shorter
Jul 11, 2012, 6:40 PM
Alright. Do you confirm of this? :0
And my ram should arrive tomorrow
Jul 11, 2012, 7:12 PM
yeah it works.
from what i know, newegg packaged my set of gskill snipers in 3 pounds of paper and cardboard so be prepared to be shocked at how big the box is
Jul 11, 2012, 7:15 PM
My order is about 2 and a 1/2 hours away and they're bringing it tomorrow -___- got there at 8 am -_____-
