Finalizing Build...any thoughts? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I'm late to tell you, there's bundles at Microcenter
Since you live in Dallas, you have access to fry's too, and those places, can match prices from newegg and amazon...

Good luck with the OC, I don't know if you can hit 4.5, but it is worth a try.

WC on FM2 is pointless, the setup will cost as much as an i5 and perform worse.

You do not want to go dual GPU with that motherboard, the lower 16x slot only has 4x lanes and it probably hangs of the MB chipset, which in it self only has 4x lanes worth of bandwidth to the CPU.

I have a 750K with OC + a HD7850 with OC and I run of a VX450, so that 550 unit is plenty.

How does this look?

CPU: AMD Athlon X4 760k BE (I live in the US, however could only purchase this stripped down A10-6800k from the UK.)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
MoBo: ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
PSU: XFX Core Edition PRO550W
Chassis: Fractal Design Arc Mini
Misc.: A HDD or two, maybe an SSD in the future; a DVD drive now, maybe a BD eventually; and a wireless card down the road as well.

The Fractal Design case confirmed it had enough headroom to go with a better fan/heatsink setup. I decided not to do water cooling until I learn the ropes of everything else. I went with a RAM kit of lower speed but better timing as per some advice from another fourm.

How high did you get your OC? The 760k I chose is based on the Richland as opposed to the Trinity. I am not sure how much of a difference that will make.

Build looks fine, but every $ spend on the GPU will be worth it.

Still tinkering, but here's a good read

That looks good. If you are choosing air cooling then i would suggest getting the silverstone argon ar 01 instead of the hyper 212. It is the same price but has better performance.
