My old system crashed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So yeah my old system crashed, it was just a random Gateway from Bestbuy 3yrs old with an upgrade 550w PSU and a XFX ATI 5770 in it. So instead of ****ing with it and i decide to build a new computer(1st time so if u guys can link to somewhere that would help me please do). I'm kinda poor(lol) but at most I dont want to spend more then $500-600 right now and have it last me for a few years and something i can upgrade over aver a few months.

Heres what I've picked out

CPU: I5-750 -$195.00

MOBO: I'll need help here I'll tell you what i want it to do in my summary.

RAM:G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) its the cas latency 9, 1.5v, 9-9-9-24 timing (had to put that here cause there like 5 different version of this ****) - $95.00

HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM - 75.00

CASE:Antec 900 - $100.00 or
Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower - $40.00

Drive: Just a cheap $20-25 one

In summary, all that i'll use this for is gaming primarily and maybe some other things depending on where my interests lead me, including furthering my interest in computers. The CPU is more than what i'll need i just know that it will last me awhile. For the MOBO i'll want it to have room for an additional 5770 and upgrade to 8gigs of ram(tell me if ill have problems using 2 sets of 4gigs of ram) im just kinda iffy on picking one. The case also has to be big enough for and Blu-ray drive, my old 500g hard drive and hopefully a SSD for my OS etc etc.

Tell me if this is good enough or if you think i should change something feel free to suggest it. Also please note I will be using my old 5770 and PSU.

Stick with the i5, and get a nice P55 board with 8x/8x CF at least

Right now i'm thinking cheaper is better at the moment if i dont have to spend more for what i'm doing and have the same amount of fun then im good to go

So will this MOBO be compatible with an i3, support crossfire, 4GBs of ram+, 1 disc drive, possibly 1 blu-ray drive in the future, 2x HDD, and possible a SSD in the future. I'm thinking(and hoping yes) but i've been having problems with understanding what CPUs certain motherboards support

If it will do that then im good, i can always upgrade my CPU later if i have some more money
