Is my future PC going to be compatible?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
PC's my sig rig. Is there anything else I'm going to need? I know my fair share of computers but this is my first build and I want it to go perfect. Is there any soldiering included? Hope not. I also have two Crossfirex bridges. Because I heard they're needed. Thanks to anyone who posts!

What do you mean by "soldiering included?" there is none needed. If you're building it follow the instuctions of the parts documentation. It is simple, if you want look up videos on youtube. Also you only need one crossfire bridge. And yes it should work fine...if you want to, double check the ram compatabiltity on the motherboard to make sure its supported.

You only need 1 crossfire bridge. You could use 2, but I doubt the second one would even get used. I think the only thing you can really do with the computer now would be RAID 0 or SSD (or both), and a decent sound card.

My only point: Consider a different mobo - something from Asus, Gigabyte, etc

Other than that, it should be good to go

And no, there is no soldering involved - unless you screw something real bad

I mean if you have to solder anything to the motherboard or such, probably not. Yes, I checked that the RAM is compatible.

You should be set then. Also if you plan on overclocking i also agree with getting a Asus or Gigabyte motherboard

Okay thanks! I've had a real bad past experience with Gigabyte mobos.

Also might want to save some money and get a different powersupply. That is way overkill. You can Xfire 6850s on a 650 watt and still be overkill.
