First AMD Build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Second build overall.

I'm looking on making some changes to my sig rig.
I like the ASUS Crosshair IV.
Phenom II X6 1055T.
I was thinking of these for memory.
Not sure about a new PSU or video card. kinda leaning to the 5770.

I would go with the GTX 460 unless you can't afford the extra $50 if you have a tight budget.

Well if he does hold off, the cpu and other components he chose would be much cheaper.
If he doesn't need the 8 cores, then he shouldn't get it.

I thought the crosshair was a crossfire board? so it still can use the gtx 460?

Yeah it's Crossfire but that just means you can't do SLI. You can still use single NVIDIA cards.

This. Either wait and get BD, or wait and the 6 cores will / should drop in price.

As for the mobo/CPU - great choices.
