post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Antec 900 Case
Phenom 2 940 BE
Asus M3A78-T AMD 790GX Motherboard
4x Kingston DDR2-1066 1GB HyperX Memory Module
Asus EAH4870 512MB Graphics Card
Thermaltake W0117 ToughPower - 750W

The only two issues I have:

1) Is the motherboard good enough for gaming and overclocking? Plus, whats the difference between this mother board and the Asus M3A79-T Deluxe AMD 790FX?

2) Is the power supply enough to support another 4870 which I will be getting in the future, or is it overkill? The PSUs I can get are here: http://www.sybaritic.co.za/store/index.php?cPath=73_269 (note its 3 pages) Oh and what does it mean for a PSU to be modular?

Thanks!

8.5/10, get 2 sticks or 2gig ram instead of 4.

not familar with psu, but if its not modulare, prepare to do some dremeling on that case. my corsair was a beast to hide the extra wires.

yes get the better ram.

also look into dell for a gtx260. - week or two ago they were sale for 140 after sale/rebate.

You are going to get flak for the Thermaltake PSU. Look into Corsair, Antec, Silverstone, PCP&P, and others.
