Need help comparing 4 AMD barebone kits please?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Alright guys I'm on a budget. On Tigerdirect I want to get either this AMD x3 710 barebones kit , this x4 805 kit, this x6 1055 barebones kit, or this x4 840 kit. Which is the best deal? And can u tell me the advantages and disadvantages?

Please help me.

The second one, the Phenom II 805 + Biostar board would be the best setup out of all of them. The 1055T is a better CPU, but the board that comes with that kit won't support that CPU. So you'd have to buy a better board with that one.

So yeah, the second link would be the best option out of what you listed.

But why not buy everything seperate? You'd get a much better deal that way.

Don't buy any of them, for the reason pointed out that you can get a better deal buying separately. Not to mention, one that also isn't stuck with single channel memory and a cheapo Diablotek time bomb--ahem, PSU
post #4 of 10
Stay away from Tiger Direct imo... Prices really aren't that great either. Use alot of parts that shouldn't go together. PSUs are always junk. Just put a little more time and work into the build. Save some money. Get better parts. And buy from Newegg.com

Here's one I've come up with for you (though I honestly recommend that if you are indeed going to spend on an x6, don't cheap out THIS much, it won't give you any options for things such as overclocking)

Phenom II x6 1055T + PNY XLR8 2x2GB DDR3-1600 CL8 - $204 shipped, $184 AR
ASUS 760G board - $45 + shipping (notice: do not overclock without VRM cooling!)
Seagate 400GB HDD - $23 + shipping
Coolermaster Elite case + CM 460W Elite PSU (this is a PSU isn't the most efficient but I can definitely trust it for a low budget build) - $50 + shipping
$322, $302 AR (+ applicable shipping)

This, I have been scouring for deals on kits but every way i slice it, something in the kit isnt up to par with the rest of it, and these sellers prey on buyers who do not know the end game with their items

Like its already been stated, all of those combo's come with a Diablotek PSU, which are known to blow up with the smallest of loads.

So I would suggest you buy separately still honestly.

OK thank you. Along with everyone else. Thanks guys! I will do. I just didn't go get all the parts and stuff because, I can set up a computer myself. But I dont know about good motherboards or PSUs. I know a good amount of info, but not enough. I also don't know how well some things will better than others.work like 8 gigs of RAM with a quad core vs a hexacore with 4 gigs of RAM.

But isn't that an exciting feature?
