Building a new AMD computer

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey,
So, I have been an Intel user for most of my life, but I'm really liking the 1090T CPU from AMD. Here's what I'm looking at so far. I was wondering if I am missing anything (should I get more fans? SATA cables? Etc.)

Oh, and if anything doesn't look compatible, just leave a note. Open to recommendations as well, thanks!

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD7 AM3 AMD 890FX

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1
Hard Drive: Intel X25-M Mainstream 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda XT ST32000641AS 2TB 7200 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Cooling Fan: Scythe YASYA SCYS-1000 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Power Supply: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RSA00-AMBAJ3-US 1000W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Ready 80

Video/Graphics Card: MSI R5770 Hawkadeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5

CD/DVD Drive: LG WH10LS30K 10X Blu-ray Burner

Once again, thanks!

Looks like a good build to me, except i'm not a big fan of the Scythe cooling fans / heatsinks, rather i would go with this if i was you. That with two 120mm fans should do beautifully.

Edit: Also is this for gaming, or what exactly is this build going to be for? As there are some parts where it seemed like you went all out, but then some parts (mainly the graphic card), which if you're gaming you may want something a bit more powerful.

Actually, the Yasya has come out pretty well in benchmarks I've seen, a little better than the Mugen 2.
The True rev c is a good one, and a bit better than both scythe coolers, and the rev c has the advantage that it finally ships with clips for all cpu types! AT LAST!

I'm not really an intense gamer, but I do play games such as WoW and Starcraft (haven't gotten the 2nd one yet). So pretty low-key, but it helps keep my options open. I'm into video editing and one of my roommates would probably want to use it for graphics design. And I want to watch blu-ray as well. I'm pretty sure my programming classes won't need too much. I'm studying as a low-key engineer so no need for ridiculous coding.

And all the basic programs such as word and internet.

Something that I did want to make sure: Do I need extra cooling? Thermal Paste? GPU fans? CPU fans? Hard drive cooling?

the system i'm starting to put together has many of the same components, namely the ram and mobo. i was curious if you're sure on the compatibility . i've looked at both manufacturer pages, and neither of them list the other as being compatible. the product page for the mobo supports that type of ram in 2GB sticks, but it says nothing about 4GB.

It's compatible.

It just seems weird to me that you're going all out and getting some of the best parts...and then getting a 5770...drop your 1090 for a 1055t/965 and your UD7 for a UD5 and upgrade that 5770 to a 5850/5870 or even a gtx465 (then unlock it to gtx470)

Edit: for that matter copy my sig rig lol, except upgrade the graphics. It's unlikely you'll need more then 4 gb ram, the UD5 has more then enough features (UD7 doesn't offer enough improvement for the price increase+you need special cases for it). Also change out that Coolermaster 1000w PSU for a Corsair 750w

if you plan to do more intense gaming down the road you can all ways crossfire the HAWK 5770, which is what i plan to do (see sig rig).

It seems like Gigabyte cares more about the UD5 users than the UD7 users because BIO updates are constantly coming out for the UD5 before the UD7 . Really, the only difference between the UD5 and UD7 is that the UD7 can run quad-Fire while the UD5 can "only" run tri-Fire. Judging by your GPU choice, you're not exactly looking to max out your graphics solution. Just go with the UD5 and save yourself some money.
