Amd Rig.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was going to purchase an Intel for my friend but he's on a tight budget.
Here's the build. It's kinda funny that the toal comes out to $666.90 lol. Anyways, i'm asking for your help to review this build and try to improve anything, i'm hoping I can hit 3.0ghz. Also, he want's a monitor and of course it needs to be cheap, I'd say around 150$. One more thing is that there is $30 in rebates, so it's about 633.90 after rebates. I really want to get this right.THX.

Looks like a good rig, maybe a different PSU like a FSP. That Coolermaster should work for a budget build though

Heres the fixed link:

- I don't see why you would get a DVD ROM and a DVD Burner. The DVD Burner can play DVDs already, getting a DVD-ROM would be a huge waste of money.

- The Tuniq Tower is good, no doubt about it; but still it is an overkill for a Brisbane. Even on stock cooling you can get a nice 2.8ghz out of it. I suggest you don't spend that much on a cooling, this one will do the job.

- I know that many people go with the Tforce 550 + Brisbane combo, but there are so many good motherboards out there that can outperform a T550 for the same price.

* Gigabyte 6100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128034

* DFI Ultra II http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136015

* Abit KN9S http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127007

There so many more but they are all SLI.

- As for the Video card, I'm sure you can get a better one cheaper if you look for it around the forums!.

X1900GT is a powerful card, I payed $215 for that card open-box a year ago.

He's right about the DVD ROM, I don't see why you'd have two drives unless you plan on speed-ripping DVDs from blockbuster.

Don't get the Tuniq. The AC Freezer is a great cooler, I had the intel version on my 805 and it worked very well. I plan on getting it for my new build in a few weeks.

I know that BIOSTAR is a good company, and I haven't had any experience with AM2 mobos, so do what you think is best on that. But ya, good vid card deal, good ram, good proc.

Thanks for all the help, I've changed the motherboard to the Gigabyte and the cpu cooler to the Artec Freezer Pro.
