Best Possible build for 900$

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
^What the title says. I don't need a mouse, monitor, or speakers/headphones. Everything else I do need, including windows. Preferably DDR3 memory. Also, I'd rather go with better cooling than higher clock speed if possible, since this is Overclock.net right? XD

G.Skill 4gb 2x 2gb $96.00

WD Caviar BLue 640gb $70.00

Antec 900 $99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129021

Corsair 750TX $110

$779.00 give or take plus tax


add the xigmatek dark knight or the scythe mugen 2 HSF and you got a bangin system

also that system doesn't include a dvdrw drive

with that mobo you'll be able to unlock the 4th core on the 720 be, and the mobo gets great reps from us here in OCN. It OCs like a baby and so does the 720 BE. I've got one myself. THe HD 5770 is a not as good as the 4870/260 but it's a dx11 card and in the future if you decide to crossfire which you will most likely(i hope) 2x 5770 blows 5850.
