Hello, i'm looking for some advice about this build for myself.
POWER SUPPLY: ANTEC HCG-520M 80 PLUS
M/B: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3
CPU: AMD FX-6100 3,3 GHZ
GPU: XFX RADEON HD 7770 1GB GDDR5 (OVERCLOCKED)
RAM: G. SKILL DDR3 4GB 1600MHZ PC3-12800
HDD: 2X SEAGATE 500GB SATA3 7200 RPM (RAID 1)
I've been reading about that the FX-6100 is not so good unless that you overclock it, but i do not how much i can push it with that PSU and M/B.
Also, i'd like you experiences with the GPU and CPU, specially if you have them running together.
About the RAM, i know i should upgrade it to at least 8 GB, but i cannot afford it, yet.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the reply.
Although i forgot to add that i already have the 2 HDD, i'm not spending money on storage.
Why an i3 instead of FX-6100?
About the GPU, the other option that i have is GTX 550 TI which in the most of the benchmarks is worst than HD 7770 and HD 6850, which is pretty close to HD 7770 from what i have seen.
I cannot afford more than that.
Hey, thanks again for the answer.
What do you think about Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition, is it a better choice than FX-6100?, i'm going to use this desktop for gaming but also i'm thinking on the future technologies, that will probably use CPU's with more cores.
the old amd3 and fm1 slot may be a dead slot now if amd moves all there cpu over to the newer fm2 slot. same goes now for ib and sb there on a dead slot. haswell that going to drop next year has a new slot.
