Socket 939 Build Log

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Going for a new build here.

CPU: Athlon64 3700+ KABGE (from Taeric)
MOBO: Asus A8R-MVP
RAM: DDR333 1024mb
VGA: Gecube X850Pro
PSU: Thermaltake 430W

Also, I'm getting a BT.

My question is, does everything look compatible?

Also, is the A8R-MVP any good. Some reviews have reports 365 FSB, but I'm skeptical. Its $100 AUD...

THe DDR33 is from my old P4 PC and considering ram's current pricing (omg...) I'm gonna use this.

Could I run a 3:2 multiplier on it? That way I could achieve an FSB of 250 mhz and thus a theoretical clock of 2.75 Ghz. Is this achievable with my build?

I'm going from an E6300 to an 805D (which at 4Ghz wasn't too much worse than the E6300) to this, I hope it doesn't prove too slow.

I just want to play WoW and BF2 at decent settings.

Nrgx.

yea that looks, fine everything is compatible, i reckon bf2 will run medium with some settings low. If you can pick up some DDR400 only 120 for a gig. If not the 333 will be ok. Hope that helped.

Ok, I have $160-$170 (AUD) to spend on a GPU (Waiting for R600).

I have come down to the following:

X800XL
X850Pro
X1650Pro

Any other ATi cards anyone can mention for tht price? www.staticice.com for prices please.

I want to try crossfire later, so, Ati is wanted.

Above: The DDR333 is free. Free > $$$
