[OFFICIAL] AMD Athlon II X4 Club - Page 74

post #731 of 1595
Thanks Tator, that's very useful......in the meantime, would it be a problem with installing my 2 memory modules in slot3 and slot4 ? reading through the motherboard manual it recommends using the 1st and 2nd slot..

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 620 - $100.79
Mobo: ECS A785GM-M - $108.84
RAM: G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBRL - $115.30
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 4870 1GB - $156.99
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB - $68.99
DVD: LG GH24LS50 24X SATA DVD±RW - $28.57
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W -$71.98
Case: Coolermaster Storm Scout - $96.77

Total: $748.23

I intend to mild overclock to get the CPU to 3.0GHz

I'll mainly be using the system to play Modern Warfare 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction
3 protips: ECS boards are meh, go with a gigabyte board or an ASUS board. Get a 5750 instead of a 4870, DX11 is the new platform, you'll save yourself a head ache later on. Don't buy an XFX ATi card. Sapphire or MSI

It won't really matter. You'll be fine putting them in 3/4.

Lots of miss leading info in your post. Do a google on that board, it's actually pretty good. The ECS Black Series boards are very up to par.

HD5750 would be a downgrade, and HD4870 is more worth it at the moment for the price. Considering ATi is refreshing DX11 at the end of the year, buying now is pointless.
It's all about Price/Performance ratio.

XFX ATi cards are not bad, not all of them atleast. Some don't overclock well, or have lacking in the cooling department, but they're not horrible die on you cards.

I just got done mounting my Kingwin XT-1264 and it mounts vertically and blows toward the exhaust. I've got it setup in Push/Pull with Rubber bands hehe.
