Compatible Mobo/CPU

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok quick question, and I figured I would post this in the general category since it falls into 2 categories.

Will these work together.

Also how well will these work for gaming. I'm wanting to play power hungry games like crysis. I will also be getting 4gb of ddr3 ram and a GTX240.

They will work fine together.

That CPU should do the business at the moment, but is there anything stopping you getting a quad core processor for a little more 'future-proof'-ness?

Also, I'm not sure you'll be able to play at the highest settings with GPU-intensive games like Crysis, but I'm sure the 240 should run them ok.

I would love to go for a quad core but I have about a $700 budget. So I want to stay pretty close to the price of that CPU and GPU. if you know of any other parts that would be better to replace those let me know. Also for a GPU is there an ATI card that would be better around that price. I've always used nvidia so I don't know much about ATI.

That depends. Which GT240 did you have in mind? They range from $55 to around $100.

I don't recommend the card at all though.

And what are you going to use your system for? Do you need every component to the build?

hmmm... i think i can improve your rig in a few ways. however, i assumed you don't need the OS, as you neglected to list one above. if you do, please say so, as i'll have to redo my build.

ok, so, i came up with 2 options. first, a crossfire capable board, which has a 5770 (slower) but that quad-core you wanted. it's got the better mobo, IMO, though, and while slower in games now, you can add another 5770 for cheap later. comes to $710.17 in my cart.



there's also this combo with the single card, which will be more powerful now. i took it to consider you'd not be going double card any time soon, so just went mATX to save a bit of money. don't fret though, as the 785G chipset is still really good. the X3 is also not going to slouch, and should get some good headroom once you strap a proper cooler onto her. of course, i will justify this rig by saying that a gaming rig is more dependent on the GPU, so you should get faster framerates.

it's up to you to decide which way you'd like to swing.



if you buy before the 4th, you can save $10 off the HDD using the code - EMCYVNX53. i haven't reflected this in the pic shown above though. it came up to $705.77 in my cart shipped

i would have done an SLi-capable build, but frankly, i'm not too comfortable recommending one, simply because i don't know the good SLI boards from the bad ones.

hope that helps .

You can't swap parts if someone posted combos.

1. That case is awful and rice-tastic.
2. That RAM is awful.

Go with the first build he posted.

But change the HDD to this

That build would allow for another 5770 in crossfire later. It's very good for the price.
