[Solved] New Rig

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I am trying to get a new rig once I give my current one to my sister. I am not the most advanced user, so I am really hoping i did my homework for compatibility. What do you think of the following? Any help would be appreciated. Any bottle-necking you see? I did not even search for a case yet, or a PSU, or a good cooling system for the CPU.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514; GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Gfx: Same as now (not giving to sister if no big issues with bottle-necking in new rig. I can play Fallout 3 and NV on very high with no FPS drop so whatevs.) See pic.

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819106010; AMD FX-6200 Zambezi 3.8GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6200FRGUBOX

Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233359; CORSAIR Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1866C9B. This is on the QVL for GA-990FXA-UD3.

I really do not have a cost limit right now, but of course I want to make sure I can get the most bang for my buck and still get a moderate improvement over my current system.

Thanks for your help.

Looks good to me but I would suggest getting differant ram, the amd setup you have is flackey with 1866 at those timings(9-10-9-27), I would defenately suggest this Corsair set instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233278 they have timings: 10-11-10-30, I have used these stable and they overclock very well! thumb.gif

Cool! Thank you so much for taking your time to review it. I am considering different mobo and cpu to just get closer to where I am at right now. I do not need the speed boost except the BIOS procedures a bit, so just increasing the FSB and the L2/L3 caches. I will definitely keep the timings of RAM in mind moving forward. When I look at it now, I can see where you are coming from, especially how mine right now are all 5-5-5-15 or something like that (I have not went into BIOS in a long time)

Make sure you post what you decide on and keep us informed. I have experiance with thousands of products and I know most of the little kinks and compatability issues epecially with AMD products(they are my favorite). So are you speaking of a downgrade from the proposed or an upgrade? thinking.gif

sure thing. I will have to do some research but maybe a sideways transition to an FX2 chip (I think that is what they are called) . I do not know yet, as long as I do not get a monopoly with onboard graphics.

Mobo: overly expensive for a single-card setup. Get this for $95 instead:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128519

Gfx: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Good call.

CPU: the fx-6300 is much better:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113286
"but what about the speed? the fx-6200 has more ghz!" Well first stock speed shouldn't matter: if you get an AMD chip and don't overclock you're doing it wrong. Get a locked Intel instead for much better performance. Second, the fx-6300 is on a newer architecture with better instructions per clock. It is the superior cpu.

RAM: overly expensive. RAM speed has next to no impact on performance unless you're running an APU (you're not). Here's a Corsair 2x4gb kit for $55
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145324

A Xigmatek Gaia for $20 is a cooler good for moderate overclocks (don't go hog wild on it). If you want stronger performance for bigger overclocks, go to amazon & get an HR-02 Macho for about $50.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233082&Tpk=xigmatek%20gaia&IsVirtualParent=1
Again, if you're not overclocking AMD, you're doing it wrong, go get a locked Intel i5 system for about the same price instead.

Case: Cheap & pretty decent. Bit Fenix Outlaw for $50:
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=63255&vpn=BFC%2DOLW%2D100%2DKKN1%2DRP&manufacture=BitFenix&promoid=1395

PSU: no good deals in this area, sorrry. XFX Core 550w for $70
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1293

The ram he has chosen is the same ram, only difference is his is the low profile version. and the timings are much better.

Thanks, MisterFred! All good points to consider! Also, that CPU cooler is exactly what I have right now! I just could not put it on my sig because I forgot what it was exactly biggrin.gif. I think that I do have a spare 650 Watt somewhere around here... You're saving me so much money that i might invest in a 3D monitor (not the passive sh@@).

Not true at all all the way down to the chip its self is different...... Nanya, Elpida, Infineon, Lynix etc..... The Whole damn thing is different, I own both kits and many more and there is a difference. And the stock timings are the only relevant ones, the kit I suggested can be changed to a much better and stable timings when overclocking compared to the kit he was gonna use. Also they run cooler as well when the voltage is up and timing is changed..... thumb.gif

combea, let us know what type of PC you'd like to build; are you trying to build a gaming rig, video-editing, or something for the bare necessities? If you let us know exactly what you're aiming for I think we can help you get the optimal components (bang for your buck!). Would like to help you out, just let us know!wink.gif

BTW, check out my rig (in my Sig), I'm running the exact motherboard your looking @ (GA-990FX-UD3) and I couldn't be happier. Board has never given me an issues and I have given it quite a beating I'd say; I'm new to overclocking so imagine the BIOS setting changes this thing has had to go through (by this I mean voltage tweaks, everything that can hurt a board/cpu really lol). Regardless a very happy GA UD3 owner here!thumb.gif
