How about this. Does the PSU and RAM look compatible with the specs and mobo? The PSU is only 430W (has 20.00 mail in rebate)....

this would work fine. why are you only ordering at newegg though? you could get much more for your money by ordering from different vendors...
post #23 of 94
Thread Starter 
I'm actually getting windows and the cpu from NCIX. Do I need 1333 ram though? My mobo goes up to 1333 and everything above that (1600+) says OC next to it. Can I drop my 1600 ram in and still be okay or will I need to tweak some things to get it running okay?

Any suggestions on who is best for what? Newegg for GPU, software through NCIX, etc? How about microcenter? Do they specialize in pricing on any particular type of component?

Phenom II x4 955 OEM (no heatsink) - $70 shipped [Superbiiz] after promo code SBZ4PRZ

ASRock 970 Extreme3 - $75 shipped [Newegg]

AMD 2x4GB DDR3-1600 - $30 shipped [NCIX]


Save $30 and then you can use that $30 on an aftermarket heatsink for overclocking

Hyper 212 EVO

Thanks xD. I was actually going to go through Newegg for my mobo. It does look like I can save a few $$$ by getting the other items you mentioned though. I guess now the question is, will this stuff be cheaper on Cyber Monday?

+1 for the AMD 965BE and ASRock 970 Extreme 3. I use these components in my build and would recommened to anyone. Newegg runs a promo for the Phenom at 89.99 once a month. Keep an eye out.

I would recommend CORSAIR PSUs. I would recommend at least a 500w unit. They are straight up honest power supplies and good bang for your buck. Sometimes you can get them on sale.

Sign up for Newegg's email blasts. Good stuff daily.
