1090T Build for friend - Need recommendations

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine asked me for help picking parts for a build based on a 1090T he got for cheap. I haven't touched AMD at all, so this is my first stop. It's a gaming build; he only needs components and the case (no peripherals, etc.); budget is roughly $800-$850; requirements are USB 3.0, but that's basically a given now. He probably won't overclock any time soon, but an aftermarket cooler is necessary.

Thanks in advance.

No case as of yet. I think he was looking at one of the lower end HAF series, so I doubt he'll have a problem with any case.

That's a good enough budget to get top of the line everything (except videocard of course). Just make sure to get the Asus CHV. I'd go with a 6950 personally...

I attached a picture of the cart that I put together. I believe that a 650PSU would be able to run the build that I put together. I'm also going to see if I could bump it down to 4GB of RAM and squeeze a 6970 or 570 into there. I hope that I didnt miss anything.

As far as the case goes, I picked the storm scout because I have a friend that has one and its an awesome case thats really portable for LANs.

You could also opt to go with a single 6950 instead of the 2 6850s and save a $100 too.

Motherboard: ASUS M4A89GTD

Memory: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB (2 x 2GB)

PSU: XFX 650W

Case: Plenty of good mid-tower options. Here are two good ones for example: Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced or Lian Li PC-K62. I personally like the HAF 912.

SSD: Corsair Force 60GB. Again, several other equally good options in the same price range.

HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

ODD: LITE-ON DVD Burner

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 or EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti. You really can't go wrong with either one. Depending on whether or not he cares for an SSD, he can upgrade to a higher GPU instead of getting the SSD. However, the real-world performance increase will be more noticeable for an SSD over an HDD than it will be for a 6970 over a 6950 or a 570 over a 560 Ti. I'd go with the SSD route.

Depending on which options you go with from the above, you're looking at between $800 to $850 total.

What's the primary use of this rig?

BTW, I can't say enough about the Kingston HyperX Blu series. It's what I'm running now. Best I've ever used. They can do 1600 @ 6-8-6-25 and 2000 @ 8-10-9-28.

Look at my build below.

Exchange the HD6850 for a HD6870 or HD6950.

If you feel the need, exchange the Power Supply with a Cosair - While I've had no issues with the RAIDMAX, its considered a lower-budget PSU, and you have the money for a higher ranked one.

You can also jump to a higher class motherboard, but its not really necessary --- If you have the extra money, get a 990 series rather than an 890 series...
Done~ Use whatever money you have left over on a second or third display. Since your budget allows it - feel free to double the RAM too...

Should be a really nice system. Its also great that your friend trusts your opinion on the matter. It's nice to have friends that support and trust in your knowledge base~

I shuffled around a bunch of parts and came up with the build attached.

Motherboard: I realized that the PCIE slots in my original build only did 16x/4x which would be useless for crossfire. So I switched it out for a 990X which supports SLI and Crossfire as well as bulldozer (when it comes out).

Graphics: I'm leaving the graphics up to you because your friend has a ton of options, he could go for SLi 460s or 470s. Crossfire 480s (there are a couple on this site for $200 each) would also be an option although that would be stretching his budget a bit. He could also go for a 6970.

OS: I'm not sure if he needs an OS or not. If he does then I'd need to do a bit of tweaking to fit it into his budget.
