Llano light gaming build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm building a glorified upgrade kit to get into the gaming arena, based around Llano and the FM1 platform. I've got all my parts picked out and in my newegg shopping cart, but I won't be ordering for another week. Just wanted to see if there were any better parts for the same price point that can be had, for the most bang for the buck. I will also be reusing an old mATX case and my deceased netbook's HDD as temporary parts, and borrowing a usb optical drive when it's needed. I'm a bit torn between the gigabyte ga-a75-ud2h and the asus f1a75-m pro though.

There are other good rams deals too. Llano will benefit with faster ram especially for the graphics.

Look at the voltage and timing on those Patriot sticks, 1.65v and CAS 11. The corsairs are nice, but I'd rather have the lower timings than more GBs. That and those heat spreaders would block any tower coolers. That and the mushkins should overclock nicely with looser CAS 9 timings @ 1866.
