AM3+ Upgrades

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I decided to sell my tablet for $120 and i got it sold tonight and I plan on upgrading to a bulldozer mobo and DDR3 Ram, heres what i picked out

Mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128519

Ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220436

Also, my bday is the 18th and ill prolly get atleast $15 from that.

After I get the board/ram i plan on selling my current Mobo/CPU/Ram/Heatsink as a combo on craigslist and get a CPU, not sure which one yet but i was thinking about getting a 1055T.

I would suggest some lower voltage memory like 1.5v instead of the 1.65v you picked. the 1055T would be a good deal if you get it...maybe buy one used?

It's $150 new on newegg so i see no reason to try to find a used one, besides I would need a heatsink for the CPU and i don't think the one that came with my old 955 will cut it.

Also give me a sec ill check out the ram again.

This seem like the best way to go, 1.5v, 9-9-9-24, 1600, and $30

Well all you need is a CM Hyper 212+ to cool it for oveclocking...it comes with a heatsink stock btw. And if you find one used you can save $30 or so easy.

And those ram are good, I have a set in my other rig.
