Builing My New Pc


Recommended Posts

Not exactly Best bang for the buck but Its what I wanted, that and I really want to see AMD bring the competition back to intel (support the cause if you will).

PSU: OCz Game Extreme 700watt

MOBO: Gigabyte Ultra Durable II AMD 790FX

CPU: AMD64 X2 6400+ 3.2ghz

RAM: 2x2GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 1066

VIDEO: XFX 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 with a ZALMAN cooler.

Audio: X-FI Extreme gamer.

OS: Vista 64bit

Case: Centurion 534

The 1066 will run with the X2 BTW, just a few bios adjustments away.

Haven't ran it yet.. waiting for the PSU and vista still.

I have a very similar setup.

PSU: OCZ 700w

MOBO: ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless (nForce 590)

CPU: Athlon X2 6400+

RAM: 4x1GB Patriot 4-4-4-12 DDR2 800

HDD: 74GB Raptor (OS) 150GB Raptor (Games)

GPU: 8800GTS 640MB (soon to be in SLI)

SOUND: X-Fi Xtreme Music

OS: Vista Ultimate 64-bit

All tucked in an old Lian Li case I bought like 6 years ago. Personally if I were you I'd have gone with the Phenom 9950. I plan on getting one once they release the 125W version because my mobo doesn't support the current 140W, but still a nice CPU you picked. With this setup I'm capable of playing all the games I have maxed out (except Crysis), so you should be better off than I am with that 8800GT and better motherboard. Nice.

You can't beat Lian-Li mine is 2002 PC-70 full tower and it's been the best thing since, still make new builds in it, just an awesome case.

This one.

I can not fault this full alu. case, after 6 years still preforms.

Nice rig - one question though: the video card.

Your mobo supports Crossfire, so why not a Radeon card like HD 4850? :

That would opt for a Crossfire setup.

Yeah, my last 3 builds all had Lian-Li cases. They are super sweet with the brushed aluminum and just "feel" nice as all the parts just slide (yeah, I said slide, not fit haha) together so well.

Do they still sell those PC70's with the 2 80mm fan squares on the front? I actually like that design (although I usually unplug 1 or both intake fans if they are too noisy) I thought they all moved to the big 120mm square on the front (my last two PC60B's had that design) ... have to check the website I guess
