Building an AMD based PC

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello!

So like mentioned I want to build an AMD based PC.
I think I will buy an AMD Radeon 7770. I want to build an PC for Call of Duty 2. Yea I know it's an old game but I love it and I’m also playing other game like CRYSIS ( I don't need max graphic).
I don't know what motherboard, CPU coller, AMD CPU and power supply I should buy ( 400W, 500 W, 600W, 700W?). I’m planning on overclocking the CPU so please help smile.gif.
I will also buy corsair 1600 memory 8 GB.

I don't want anything overprized. Just in the range of AMD fx-6100. Don't know which processor is better for OC.

TY!

So I take it this will just me used for gamming? How many monitors do you plan on using? Do you only want new parts? What is your budget? what all do you need for your build? Do you need a OS?

Well this is what I have availible in Slovenia, since New Egg issin't shipping to europe. And do you think that a 500W power supply is enough for overclocking? The Extreme Power supply says to have an atleast 650W power supply.

I wouldn't get an MSI board i'd suggest Asus, AsRock, or Gigabyte.

EDIT: you should try and get PSU off this list if at all possible

I would recommend the Gigabyte UD-7 for the mobo and you can try getting the 960T if you can. The 6870 as a graphics card would be a good choice. A reasonable cpu cooler would be the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ Evo. If your lucky the 960T will unlock into an x6.thumb.gif

For the graphic card: the 7770 is like 30€ cheaper then the 6870 so I don't know. What do you mean with the if you're lucky it will unlock in a x6?

Actualy the 960T issin't available in any online shop..

The 960T has 2 cores locked and you can unlock these cores turning the x4 into an x6. The 960T is known to overclock very well also. If the 7770 is falling cheaper then you can go with it. For gaming the phenom and thuban chips are better than the bulldozers.
