How is my build?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I decided to build my own computer for pc games.

I had some parts lying around and I think I did pretty good with my build. But I want to hear what other people think of the end result.

Parts already owned prior to build:
Wintec 2x2GB DDR2 PC2-6400
550watt Antec Basiq BP550 Plus
Antec Mid-Tower SLK3800B
Asus Sata DVD/RW DL Drive
Hitatchi 500GB 7200rpm 16MB cache
Asus M3A78-CM Motherboard

Parts I bought when building:
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @ 3.2ghz
XFX Black Edition AMD 5850 1 GB
Patriot 2x2GB DDR2 PC2-6400
Hitatchi 500GB 7200rpm 16MB cache

End result was:
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @ 3.2ghz
8GB DDR2 PC2-6400
AMD 5850 1GB
2 500GB sata drives in a raid 0 configuration

and the cost came to $493.

So what do you think?

Looks nice, but your board won't take full advantage of the 1090T with it not being AM3

What would the full advantage be with AM3? I know down the line in about 6 months I am going to replace the Mobo but I just want an idea of the improvements.

That board is OK. It will perform fine. It does lack a few things 790 and 890 chipset have.
