  1. Look for a 1600Mhz RAM instead of an 1866MHz. You won't notice a difference.
    I prefer the Phenom II x4 965, but yea don't take my word for that.
    PSU is enough.
  2. Is that with the apu in mind? I read something about the faster the ram the better for them more then most also the price is probably very close, gonna check thanks
  3. Great checking them all out now, thank you
  4. its not going to make a ton of a difference. yes higher speed ram helps but high speed ram comes with higher latency which counteract each other
  5. Oh geeze I read half that power supply info XD
  6. atleast it wasnt junk. its very good but not the best for the money
  7. Ok well I have realistic views on how this will run, I haven't kept up on hardware for awhile. Should I worrie about over heating or wait and see how it runs?
  8. it wont overheat
  9. You should be fine with stock cooler, unless you're overclocking...?
  10. there is no stock cooler with the 3930k. so i suggested getting the nh-d14 se2011 from noctua
  11. Ohh okay. My bad.

    the Llano system is a decent one for basic use and light gaming. (720p for high end stuff)

    this adds a 6670 in crossfire, 8 GB RAM, a higher quality motherboard (though it lacks SATA III and USB 3), a 500 GB drive, and has a much cheaper case and PSU. the 400W PSU is still plenty for this build
