amazing $600(ish) gaming build! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I have the Blackbone, very nice budget case.

Shame you didn't wait for the 6870s.
Any chance of returning the 5770?


Just noticed you have the mobo doing the overclocking, might want to do it yourself.
The volts are probably way higher than it should be.

That's a good mobo, I replaced it with my Crosshair IV for hardware ECC in my sig rig.

admitidly, im a bit of a noob at overclocking. plus i only have a arctic cooling freezer pro 64 as my cpu cooler. so im not quite sure what i would be doing. the mobo driver has very easy to use ocing utility from inside windows 7. so i just did the automatic quick oc.

i wouldnt mind going a bit higher if i could be sure that it wouldnt be hurting temps or the card

What OS did you install? 32 bit caps at 3.25gb of system memory, so he won't get to utilize all that RAM.

I only run 32-bit and Win 7 sees all 4gb but uses no more than 3gb. Even when editing home movies, burning movies, gaming, etc. etc. I've never had an issue...OP you'll be fine with the 32-bit, although you may want to consider Win 7 over XP

i installed 7. i have all the gizmos and gadgets drivers installed, just oc'd a little tiny bit, (3.4) and packed it in the case box for delivery. i will prolly be dropping it off sometime this week, he said he would be purchasing the monitor, keyboard, and mouse himself. so all i needed to do was get the operating system and computer all worked out and running nicely.

cable management was a bit difficult because the psu isnt modular, but everything installed very easy, and i also helped my dad build a computer using the same case, same mobo, athelon II, same ram, same psu, pretty much he just took my parts list and took out the gpu, and went for a cheaper cpu.

this was a great build, and i was running bfbc2 on full settings with aa and af at full with no problems. and it was extremely smooth. the power on this thing astonishes me. i've never used such a fast computer. im quite jealous.

isnt it sad that i spent about 8 hours on a computer, fell in love with the speed and performance, got handed 40 bucks, and have to hand it over? lol after i buy my car, im gonna start making a fund just for a computer.
