Help building my PC

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Since this is my first PC build i needed some help on this

crosshair IV extreme motherboard £239
AMD phenon II X6 1100T 6x3.3Ghz £166
Kingston hyperX 8GB 1600mhz dual channel £86
1 TB WD caviar black WD1002faex Sata 6GB/s 64mb
samsung SH-BO83L/BSB9 12x blu ray rom drive 16x DVD TR/+RW cache 7200rpm $63
Titan fenrir evo extreme heatpipe cpu cooler £35
NZXT phantom full tower http://images.pricerunner.com/produc...byAT-White.jpg £100
windows 7 home edition £80

all together thats £830 I also have a radeon 5870 at home. But thats not the problem, the problem is that 1 5870 wouldn't be enough to handle games in the future or crysis for eyefinity so i was thinking about getting 5870 crossfire but my limit is around £830 So i don't know what to get cheaper so i can get 5870 crossfire maybe around £850 without any bottlenecks. Tried google but that didn't help at all so i came to the next best place. Here.
:EDIT:
The 5870s are pci-e 2.1 x16

1) Get the 1090T instead of the 1100T. They are the same thing just with different stock multipliers.
2) Possibly get the Crosshair IV Formula instead? I know there is a big price difference between the Extreme/Formula.

Maybee that'll make it cheap enough..

Personally I wouldn't spend that much on a motherboard. If you already have a 5870, I'd keep going with that for awhile. You're probably better off waiting for "the future" and buying a relatively cheap card that will blow your current one out the water. Maybe you should wait for whatever AMD/ATI produces after the 6k series. Your current card is almost top of the line, and there's not much of a difference between 5 and 6 series cards.

I also agree with getting the 1090T instead.

Hello
Well, IMO you better get i5 2500k with a decent MoBo like Saberthooth or Asus P8P67 deluxe.
i5 2500k $224
1100t $214

Mother board: Asus MAXIMUS IV EXTREME B3 if you wanna spend that much on MoBo, Something like IV EXtreme should do it... But I recomend something like Asus P8P67 Deluxe or Sabertooth P67

Now the $ difernece is about $10. But as for performance i5 2500k is better... Let me find more bechmarks...
Check this comparation out. i5 2500k outperforms 1100t on all task but 3. In my Opinon, i5 is better. And here is the proof

1090T/1100T win in multi-threading and rendering when compared to the i5-2500K @ SAME clocks. The i5-2500K can be overclocked higher which will make it win in every benchmark. .. and the i7-2600K wins in every benchmark regardless.

ps, the benchmarks on the web aren't very accurate as they do not overclock the NB on AMD chips which will have an effect on the benchmarks.

but yes.. it's better he goes the Intel route or wait until BD. Unless you need a computer now.

The Crosshair IV Formula supports the AM3+ FX-Series processors out in 1 month
post #7 of 7
intel or bulldozer or 1090t + less expensive motherboard. A big selling point of the extreme over the formula is the hydralogix chip for 4x cf or 3x sli or funny combinations. Since you want to run only 2x5870, the regular 890fx chip provides enough pcie bandwidth for that. The crosshair iv formula or any of the other manufacturers high end 890fx boards would be just as good for less money.
