More about components compatible
  1. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dAxr

    try this build you will love it
  2. Compatible but I'm not liking a lot of the choices here. You'll never max out anything with a Llano and a 7770. That 1KW PSU is about 500W more than you need for that setup. The SATA cable isn't needed and neither is the sound card or the RAM cooler. You're just throwing away money there.

    I'd completely trash that whole build and get something like this:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ Newegg)

    Add whatever keyboard and mouse you want and you're good to go.

    The MoBo has onboard audio so you don't need a sound card.
    Windows 7 pro is wasted. The only time I would suggest you getting Pro is if you are getting more than 16 Gb of RAM. If not, then don't get it. Unless of course there are some features of Pro that you need for work.
    That monitor would be better for gaming because of its fast response time.
    With this GPU, you can practically max out all games at the moment.
    I added an SSD so you can install your OS there + games/important programs. It will drastically improve load times.
  4. Edit: nevermind lol seems others have already mentioned everything.

    But the choice for the motherboard imo isn't great... the negative reviews bother me.

    Off topic but how do you get the Break down like that?

    There's a button at the top that says "BB Code Markup" and then you can choose multiple vendors or single vendor, I usually choose single vendor. Then copy and paste.

    Are you using Newegg or Tom's? Tom's gave it an editor's choice last week which is most of us are recommending it. It's *NEVER*, repeat - *NEVER* a good idea to rely on stores for product reviews - they're useful, sure, but the people who review products on stores are almost never professionals. 90% of the positive reviews are almost pure fanboyism, and a good 80% of the negative reviews are either bad shipping or refunds - almost nothing to do with the product itself. Read closer.
  7. From every thing I read so far I'll just trash my build, I like a lot of what every one is responding with. The only thing that I'd like to try to stay with is newegg.com for buying everything if possible. The cases you guys are posting with the builds, how are they with keeping it cool? If the rigs can run BF3 on max setting with decent frame rates the better.
    Will those builds last at least 2 years before upgrades are need? Excluding normal wear an tear.

  8. Pcparkpicker.com mate. :)

    @ Mid: Those reviews are baseless. It is mostly babies complaining how UPS messed up their delivery. Most accidents happen in the truck btw. The Extreme4 is a solid board for the price.

    The Corsair Carbide Series is great with cooling. However, any well-built case will keep your system cool within 1 to 2 degrees between other well-built cases. Just make sure to read reviews about it.

    The build I suggested has the best GPU at the moment but is also the priciest. Should help with longetivity though. Yes, it should last about 2 years.

    The price is good as it fits my budget range.

    Thanks for the build though, I'm looking through newegg.com now to see if I can get it all from them.

    The Carbide series also has excellent cable management. I posted a build that is slightly cheaper but a bit more balanced in terms of CPU and GPU.
