Any thoughts?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Its been a while since I built a rig. I didn't think about asking advice here before I bought the goods. Wondering if you guys could tell me if I took the wrong road or not.

Old stuff going into the build:

500gb 200gb and 160gb hd
2 dvd burners
x-fi platinum
4gb corsair gaming ram


I know some of the stuff wasn't the greatest but I was trying to keep it below 400

Any comments would be appreciated.

I personally would just spend a couple dollars more and get a 720 BE.

The 720 is a 3 core.. From what Ive read the 720 and 550 are really both 4 cores, and if its 4 working cores your set with the right mb. Also I was trying to stay under a price point. The question wasnt what I should have done. Thanx thou, I appreciate it.

Looks good to me except I would have picked some different memory. Not a big deal though.
