New AMD build

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
So I decided to go with the 8800 gts this time. What are your opinions on this build: Keep in mind that I will be oc'ing the 3600+ to 2.8 ghz. I hope the cooler and the case and mobo will allow me to do that with no problems. Also, will the 8800 gts fit in this mobo:

MOBO:BIOSTAR TFORCE 550 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 550 MCP ATX
RAM: A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz Socket AM2 Processor
GPU: EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
CASE: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5
PSU: XCLIO GOODPOWER 500W ATX 500W
CPU COOLER: Thermaltake CL-P0114 120mm CPU Cooler and Arctic Silver 5
HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA
DVDRW: SAMSUNG 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write, LightScribe Technology Black SATA Model

All parts from new egg come around to $ 760. Is it worth it? Also, will the thermaltake 120mm work on the 3600+ x2. I was thinking of the ninja cooler over the big typhoon...its a tad cheaper.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I second the better PSU, but by better, I mean get a more trustworthy brand.

XClio 500 watt goodpower is one of the newest brands to be embraced here. Its a great psu and has like 16 or 18 ramps on 2 rails. Keep it.

I have it on my X2 3600+ and it does great

So I made two changes:
This ram: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ - Retail
and this cooler: Scythe SCNJ-1100P 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Will the scythe work on the 3600+?

you don't need 800 mhz ram with a amd

the brisbane 3600 has a 9.5 multiplier, so 333 mhz (stock for 667 mhz ram) you'd be running over 3.1 ghz (9.5 * 333) and thats max for a amd
post #7 of 12
what? 800mhz ram would give him MORE overhead to overclock. That is like saying DDR500 wont work in my system.

I just read that by the end of july, Quad core will be around $200 range. If this is correct, Im willing to wait. Will I still be able to make a gaming rig with Q-core <$1000???

If you can get your hands on one ...
I don't doubt they will make all they can sell but like anything new, it will be hard to get one in the early going.

it all depends what you want to do with the machine. if this is going to be primarily for gaming, you wont see much of a difference with a quad core.
