finally getting around to it - sandy bridge - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I would say that you would be fine with that build. The only thing that you may run into with getting a gpu later down the road is that the cpu may be a bottle neck and effect the frame rate of the games you are playing. That is the issue I was having with my last budget build, I had a beast of a gpu and a crapy cpu on a crap board. But then again I was using amd athlon II x4 640.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Phenom wipes out Athlon, and SB WIIIIIIIIIIIIIPES out Phenom. Even if it's only 2400K, the benchmark is still 1.5x higher than 955 both @ stock. Only slightly less than the 2500K

Obviously you did not read what I said, I said that he may. If he is buying this down the road he may run into this issue because he buys the some beast of a gpu that is currently better then what is out now because he is upgrading in the future. Plus he is not getting a 2400k because they don't make that, he is buying a 2400. These are always issues you run into when doing a budget build that you want to upgrade down the road.

You can not overclock the 2400 chip ( you can but very little), and the board that he is getting also does not allow you to overclock the cpu (does not even give you the options in the bio). So yes if he upgrades in a year or 2 he could run into this issue. We are not talking about present day we are talking about in the future. So if you are building a computer on a budget then you do need to think about this issues that could come up.
