Help with build, a few questions. - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
Well as noted I already own a 64gb SSD (230Rx180W peak) I can understand future proofing but by the time they are where I can max SATA III I would most likely be building a new box.

So I was thinking a box with a 2 to 3 year shelf life?

I am not saying I don't appreciate your input I really do, but I'm not all too familiar with sata III benches etc. and I'm not sure about the performance diff.

So in your personal opinion would it be worth the cost diff for my purposes?

As I am trying to keep around 800 budget mark for this rebuild and most likely will be able to afford a much nicer setup in two years.

So given the options on memory 1600 w/ CL9 or 1333 w/ cl7?

Also 1600 CL7 @ 140$ or 1600 cl8 @ 100$? is it worth the 40$

Change your GPU to this 5750, purely due to DX11. If you can get enough together for a 5770, go ahead.

So this is what I have put together so far (All purpose rig), any recommendations on the mobo?

I may be considering the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO

Also given the correct mobo I may look to go sli/crossfire in the future.

Get the M4A89GTD Pro.

And I'd consider changing your GPU to a 5770.

the more less CL the faster the memory refresh a page file. I would go with the faster they are like CL6 but anything around 8 to 9 for that speed of a memory is slow. but cheaper as the higher CL there is.

The XFX 750 is a Sea Sonic, the 650 is PC Power & Cooling. Either company you buy from (Corsair or XFX), you'll be getting a quality PSU.

I also recommend getting that 890GX board over the 770 one.

Sorry to jump in late, yes. The Phenom II chips all show well with tighter timings versus higher frequencies. Your best bet would be to find 1600 CL7 or better, else I would try the tightest 1333 you can find.

Also I just looked at the rig you put up on Newegg. I would recommend a 790/750 board if you can adjust or find one at the same price point. Also, you're better off with the Xigmatek S1284 as it uses copper as well on the direct touch pipes, plus I think it's cheaper (37$ ~ ?). Also, I would stick away from a GTS250 and I would buy either a 4870 or a GTX260. Both will still last a while.

As for the 890 chipset, I would wait until it's rounded out more. Just know also that It seems that USB 3.0 is all well and good for devices capable, however, SATAIII hasn't shown the improvement it needs at this point in time. By that, I mean to say that SATAIII drives aren't mainstream yet and SSD's are a ways off for a while (to make the most use of SATA 6GB). That's just my !
