what would you suggest

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
im planing on building a amd rig this time around and ive never used a computer with a amd processor in it. So i guess my question is what would you suggest im looking for something powerful not something that will be outdated soon and the socket doesnt matter cause i havnt picked out the mobo yet... i always start with the processor

The 939 is the answer.
The question is how much do you want to spend and will it be an Sli or not?

Ok, the question is how deep do you want to dig
DFI offers the most challanging OC MBs.
THe DR-SLI is an excelent piece, the "Expert" on the other hand is even more challanging and currently has an unpublished issue and best to avoid untill they get the BIOS quirk ironed out.
Asus has a new SLI that is very good to but hard to find.
If you want serious graphics the 7800GT -7800GTX is the answer. For now 1 will game awesom and you can add a second later.
On the RAM... 2x1G is the way to go... at least DDR500 or if you can find the Geil One get it ... you will see it with CAS1.5 specs.
On the PS... an Sli certified unit is a MUST.
There are serveral great PSs out there too!
OCZ, PC Power, Silverstones Zeus, Sunbeam NUUO 550 very reasonable price very dependable unit if you can find one and there are other very good ones too!
The Zeus is very highly recommended.

On the CPU... the Optron 148 have a new core stepping of CACJE 0546 which I've found very little on but had OCed to 2900 Verified... the CACJE 0548 is out there but as of yet I've found nothing but will be working an OC on one for a friend. So, unless you fine the older CABNE, CABYE in the 0540 or older dates it's unclear what you will get, they typpically hit 2800-3000. The CAB2E which some discount has also seen 2900. verified ... It's the GABGE that seems to be a bit of a dog!

Just get a GOLD plated VOODOO pc.....lol...j/k. their only 15k and up.
Really tho...an AMD 64x2 4800 and an ASUS A8N32-SLI motherboard with a couple of 512meg 7800gtx's, along with a PC Power and Cooling 850 SSI power supply will run you about 3k. Add in case,sound and other do dad's and your set.
