post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm brand new here and been out of the loop for a few years since i built my opteron 165 system.

looking to put together a new system and want to know what you think of the following spec:

Antec Mini P180 Black MATX Case
ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO 785G Socket AM3
AMD Phenom X4 965 Black Edition
Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10666 XMS3 DHX
Scythe Mugen 2
Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive x2
LiteOn iHOS104 Blu-Ray Reader & DVD-Rom Serial ATA Internal Black
Antec TruePower New 650W Modular PSU - 80plus Bronze and SLI Certified 3x SATA

got a dvd burner i can reuse. and not sure if the cooler will fit in the case or not.

any advice or recommendations would be great

Looks like a great build, just make sure to get the C3 stepping Phenom II 965. It gives you better overclocking potential. Its the 125W version.

Newegg Link.

I'm not sure if the Mugen 2 will fit inside a mini p180, you'd have to ask somone who has used that case before.

no problem with the cooler;
any graphics card fits in the case, but you have to remove the lower HD slots (just if you put a big graphics card).

what card do you want to buy?

Don't know about the Mugen but it fits the Megahalems ok and both coolers are 158mm high. Also if you look at the build log below you can see that there is quite a bit of room behind his 8800gt alphadog and he mentions that he is wanting to get a 5870 soon so it surely fits.

Gp build log

So the rig in the pictures is minus the cage?
