Hey guys just recently joined the board cause i was trying to OC my 1055t and was just snooping around . Couldn't get it to run steady kept crashing so i just gave up! then HT flood sync error....weird screens when it ran...so whatever

MSI 870A FUZION AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX

4 x G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model

i also have a OCZ SSD 240gb


im using a h55 corsair to keep it cool




i am going to just give this computer to my mom since she needs one bad....... so im looking for suggestions on what to purchase that i can OC and have really good performance with

im looking either for a i5 or a i7 looking to spend (could vary) 200-300 on processor and 100-150 on motherboard and if needed some ram(i have spare old cheap ddr3 so if that one is good ill keep it). Im keeping my power supply if you guys say its a good once since i already got a Radeon 7970 as you can see on the picture and budget is running tight.


Will be ordering from amazon since im doing the free trial of prime and if i order within 3 hours ill get it tomorrow biggrin.gif



i was looking at , but feel free to call me a dumb ass and point me in the right direction!! im looking to OC it to stable speeds and i want it to last me 2 years maybe less!

Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I53570K

Intel Core i7-3770K Quad-Core Processor 3.5 GHz 8 MB Cache LGA 1155 - BX80637I73770K

AS Rock LGA1155 DDR3 SATA3 USB3.0 Quad CrossFireX and Quad SLI A GbE ATX Motherboard Z77 EXTREME4



wasnt looking at any memory assuming mine would be good but if not i could make a sacrifice.


all i do i surf the net and play video games.....i study too but i can do that on my ipad

i like battlefield , wow, crysis and soon Sim City! (so if any of you guys play any of these let me know and we can game on)

All I've come to say is that I'm relieved that you're keeping the PSU.  That's a good PSU and it has enough power for two overclocked 7970s.  ;)

Yeah, it's an awesome unit.  It's "based on a custom SeaSonic platform".  Here's a quote from Phaedrus2129's "On Antec" article.  It was written when the TruePower New was brand new.  He mentioned the HX750, but he's referring to the original HX750 which is quite different from today's Gold-rated HX750.

Combined the TP3 units with the SeaSonic M12D platform? Whatever they did, the result was pure awesomesauce on a bun resulting in a superb 750W power supply that performs comparably to the reigning champion Corsair HX750, for the significantly lower price of the TX750. The voltage stability is excellent and the ripple suppression is too! And it's partially modular? Holy crap, this is amazing! And the 550W version can be had for a mere $65 after MIR at Newegg at time of writing. GO. BUY NOW. Seriously, that's the best PSU bang for the buck I've ever seen (Well, except for the SeaSonic M12D 850W for $140. But that only lasted like, two days before they sold out so it doesn't really count. Wish I'd picked up on it, though).

The only thing dragging this line down is the partial modularity, and... both 4+4 and 8-pin mobo connectors? You only need one of those cables on a 750W PSU, any system that needs both won't run on a 750W unit in all liklihood. But otherwise they're superb! They make the Corsair TX series obsolete, and give the HX series a run for its money.

They're discontinued, but still!

If you are on a budget just get the 3570K, the 3770K isn't going to provide any tangible benefits for your use (at least not any worth $100). I would look at the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H if they have it at Amazon. It is a better board than both the Asus and the ASRock you listed, although it is normally a little more expensive.
