New System what do you think

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright I haven't been able to build a system in a while my current one is crashing randomly. Probably the video card so I thought I would build a whole new system.


Here are the specs that I am thinking:
AMD Opteron 165 (Dual Core,1MB cache, S939)
DFI LanParty Ultra Motherboard (I don't need SLI)
XFX or eVGA 7800GT
Antec P180

I already got my hands on:
X-Connect 500W PS
512MBx2 Patriot TCCD
2 74GB Raptors form my existing system

I might hold out until AMD has some chips with Pacifica tech build into them but they seem to be while out still.


So what do you guys think. Any suggested changes.

I recommend getting an external sound card (X-fi is awesome and worth every penny). I'd also probably add another GB of RAM due to the fact that games are getting a lot hungrier for it. Other than that it looks like a good build.

I would get the XFX 7800GT like now cause the free CoD2 offer ends the 30th and you have 14 days after the purchase to register and get the game .

I have already gotten a Audigy 2 ZS during Black Friday for $20. I don't feel that the x-fi will help that much more.

Careful with that mobo and the PSU! The Lanparty requires a native 24-pin Motherboard. If I'm correct, that one is a 20-pin. By using an adapter you're taking a pretty big risk.

But nice build =).

It seems you are right the PSU is a 20pin. I might consider picking up another but this one only cost me $5 so it wont be a complete lose.

Yes, if you get a new PSU, I highly reccomend the OCZ Powerstreams. As you can see I own one, so don't believe the people who quote the THG review where it failed, I never trusted that site anyways. The best part about this PSU is that it comes with both a 20pin AND a 24pin cable, no adapters, so it works with any motherboard, also it has 4pin, 8pin and 4+4pin motherboard style connectors and TONS of HDD style, PCIe style and SATA style power connectors, they come in 420W, 520W and 600W versions costing ~$89, $139 and $209 on newegg.
