post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, im looking to get a new tower for the upcoming weeks, my budget is 1600 CAD or us dollars ( its about the same anyways)
I really liked to build in a coolermaster case or corsair I just love them tongue.gif the computer will be for gaming only and I'd like to get a amd build this time, I had multiple issues with my intel cpu so I decided to get a amd this time tongue.gif I would really l like to overclock the cpu ( so I need a decent cooler for it and some decent ram as well ) I have a 31 inches hdtv and the res is 1920x1080 biggrin.gif since its amd build i would love some Amd gpu as well biggrin.gif please do not use a msi motherboard I dont like them frown.gif

Thanks, matt

1600 is way overkill for an AMD build. Generally the whole point is that they're cheap and you can overclock them. Whereas if you want to throw money at top performance... or get pretty darn decent dual-core gamers for remarkably cheap, you go Intel.

Anyway, here's my suggestion. Note in particular I'm not an expert on AMD mobos. So if some other forumer pooh-poohs the motherboard recommendation, well they not be crazy. Unlike any other time another forumer disagrees with me tongue.gif
