Builing an AMD pc today.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My final parts will be here today.
Heres the rundown.
AMD Phenom 9600.
DFI LP UT 790FX-M2R .
OCZ ReaperX pc6400 2x2.
Gecube 3870x2.
BFG 800 watt psu.
Zalman 9700.
WD 160 sata300.
Vista Ultimate 64.
Big green and very ugly Alienware case.


Some of these parts I bought because I liked them so much in my sig.
Like the memory and psu.
Im taking the 3870x2 out of my sig and putting in this computer.
And I will be buying another video card to run in crossfire with the x2.
I have a couple BFG 7900gtx that Ill sli in the sig computer.
Until I get the funds for a 9800gx2.
I just keep thinking back to my ole trusty xp3200 barton and AMD has a place in my heart.
So Im gonna run this for a while and see what happens.
Im not expecting too much of an oc so I wont be let down there.
I also plan on getting a 9850be in time.
I also plan on getting another case too.
But these things I think will suffice for now.


Tell me what you think.
And if you want give me some 3dmarko6 predictions.
Stock or otherwise.

Okay. Well I heard it is under extreme conditions so unless your going to be putting it on LN2 or dry ice then we have a problem.

Is those Gecube 3870x2 pretty good?

Ive only had it a few days but so far so good.
I really like the fact it does audio through the hdmi adapter as I use it on my plasma tv.
Doesnt get too hot and I leave the fan at 40% all the time.
I can say that it runs cod4 maxed at 1920x1080 with no problems.
