Compatibility check

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
What do you guys think:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition $215.00
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-880GMA-USB3 Motherboard $119.00
RAM: Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 $105.00
Graphics Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD6850 1GB Overclocked $179.00
Storage: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HD103SJ $59.00

Total: $677.00 @ PCCASEGEAR.com

These are Australian prices (aka higher than fricken necessary.)

I'm open to changing them as long as they're stable, compatible and STAY WITHIN BUDGET.

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K $219.00
MOBO: ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Motherboard B3 $205.00
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws F3-10666CL8D-4GBRM (2x2GB) DDR3 $49.00
Graphics Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD6850 1GB Overclocked $179.00
Storage: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HD103SJ $59.00
= $711.00
You gain SLI/CF support, UEFI, more USB3 ports, more SATA ports.
You loose 4gbs of RAM.

If you decide to stay with AMD I would seriously wait until Bulldozer is released sometime in the next 2-3 months.
On a side note on your original mobo, I would seriously look into a better board considering the board you selecting has NO VRM cooling... and you have a 6 core CPU.

Whats VRM cooling?

I might, im not entirely sure what i'll end up going with. Originally I was going with x4 955 BE instead of x6 1100T BE so I wasn't going to be in the $200 price range so the i5 wasnt an option.

if its a ddr3 board it will support 1600

am3 cpu's default the imc at 1333, but can go upto 2000+ (c2 with 2 dimms only, c3 or higher can do 4 dimms at any speed) without any issues
just change the ram multi in bios to 1600


vrm cooling

is there anyway you can go with the newer asus 880g evo...its a full size atx with a better phase design.this would be abetter route with an x6 cpu. if you want to do any overclocing on that cpu this motherboard is a must,imo.
