Help, Suggestions for new build

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Alright.. so I ordered everything from newegg already, but I was second thinking some of my decisions so I would like to get some input before I open everything up.



Current PC:

CPU: AMD Phenom II 555 Dual-Core 3.2Ghz -- 3 cores @ 3.4ghz
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon 5770
Memory: 2x 2gb GSkill Ripjaw DDR3 1600
Mobo: Asus M4A77TD
Storage: 500gb Hitachi
Cost: $900 with new lcd


What I ordered:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 Ivy Bridge 3.2GHz (3.6GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155
Video Card: MSI N650-MD1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Mobo: ASUS P8B75-M/CSM LGA 1155 Intel B75
HDD: Crucial M4 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
PSU: RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply
HSF: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
Case: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower

Total spent: $650 with shipping... will be $600 with rebates.


I am second guessing the motherboard choice, I would like to spend less than $100 on the motherboard for that is all my budget allows for me.


Help, Suggestions are need, or a thumbs up to go ahead and put it together.

Everything looks good to me. Those are all really nice parts. I would say to just go ahead and put it together.

Only thing I am worried about is not being able to OC on that motherboard.

Due to the power limitations to the ASUS P8B75-M/CSM board, it would be recommended that you do not try to Overclock on it. Due to the i5-3470 not being a K series cpu, you won't get that much of an overclock out of it, has the Multiplier is not unlocked. I can say that the i5-3470 is a great CPU that runs most if not all your needs without being Overclocked. It is a very fast and snappy CPU.

Hope this helped you in your quest to a great build you are doing.

Yep, with a locked chip you aren't going to be doing much overclocking anyway, so no reason to get a "overclocking" motherboard unless you also want to upgrade to a 3570K.  What you have picked out is a solid system - I'd just go ahead and build and enjoy it.

I would've picked the Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H instead, but I guess for an i5-3470 it wouldn't make too much difference what B75-based board you pick.

Thanks for the replies and information.

I would have only been OCing it to 4.0, from what I read, that is possible with the chip.

Theoretically you could OC the 3470 to 40/40/39/38, but that's impossible to accomplish with a B75-chipset motherboard. You'd have to get a Z77 for that.

You need to return your PSU

Do not use that PSU!

Reason? Little more useful information than "DO NOT USE!"
