will this new rig work

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
After much thought on which grapic card to use i think i have finaly decided on one to use the GTX 480 (as ican get it at a very good price) this card will be going into my current rig until i get the new one built.
Speaking of which i need some advice whether or not my proposed rig will be ok.

M/board: asus crosshair v or sabertooth 990fx
processor: AMD black (not sure which one)
Memory : 4GB-8GB to match board
GPU: GTX 480
PSU: Corsair 620 HX
O/S: Windows 7 ultimate
HDD: 60GB SSD
Case: Thermaltake Armour

As you can see there is some gray areas on which i need advice on such as which processor to choose and what memory to use with which board but the main thing i need advice on is as i am buying the GPU first will it be ok in this proposed set up.
Also i mainly use my rig for gaming (crysis and dawn of war 2 are my latest)and video work, also my screen resolution is normally set at 1920x 1080.
Thanks in advance for any advice given.

Nice rig, might just be powerful enough for a MAME system.

from what i understand the 955BE is one of the better overclocking black editions.

and by memory, are you looking for a specific brand, speed, what?

For the moment the system when built is going to be stock but if i go water cooled at a later date i might see about some overclocking, memory wise if it will work with the boards i will prbobly be looking at corsair vengance or g.skill ripjawsx.
P.S. i am a bit new here what is a MAME system.

I think he's talking about an arcade emulator, not sure though, look it up on google/wikipedia.

i personally would go with the corsair vengence ram, but i am pretty close to being a corsair fanboy so....

really, all in all, gskill or corsair ram will be superb, they are both equal quality.
what you need to be picky about is stock timings/speed/voltage, that will kind of give you a small idea of the future task or OCing or undervolting the ram.
