Looking for a blue-print for my first build. - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Have a look at the Combo deals for that 5850 to see if something works for you (i.e. 5850 + processor)
Considering you're not gaming though it may be overkill for your needs.

Ok so I've looked into it some more and I think this is the CPU I want to use...


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-675-_-Product

So now I need a Motherboard and some DDR3 RAM to get the next step going correct?

You don't need a graphics card for non gaming. Integrated graphics can handle 1080p. The 5850 is so overkill, that is a high end gaming card. If you want a dedicated card look for a 5550 or a gt240 or gtx430 (this if you want 3d).

Looking good,
As others have said you could get by with lesser components,
But having faster parts definitly wont hurt,

If you want a gpu Id go for a 5750

I have serveral of those hd's and they are nice

Unlocked multiplier for the exact same price ftw (Phenom II x4 955 + eSATA bracket) $135.50 [note how this combo has a lower price than just a single 955! ]
Remember that with any 125W processor you will want minimum 8+1/8+2 power phase & mosfet heatsinks, or you are putting your motherboard at high risk for catching fire!
This motherboard (ASUS M4A88T-V EVO, 880G/HD 4250) $100 (better/lower priced than 790GX)
This memory (Kingston HyperX 1600 9-9-9) $40 AR

if you want to buy a system for gaming just get an i3 and overclock it to 4.5Ghz and SLI GTX460

it will beat AMD in every way for the same price.

Except that if you read the OP, this isn't a gaming PC at all

Yea I wont be gaming on this much at all... Im assuming what im talking about could handle some COunterStrike 1.6? If so, im set lol.

1771: Lets talk heatsinks and such for a moment... Because I have no idea what exactly you're talking about with that... I was also told to look into 600+ watt Power supplies.

The power phase regulates, converts and supplies power to the CPU from the 4-pin/8-pin PSU connector. With 4+1 power phase, each of the 4 power phases is dealing with 25% of the CPU power and the extra power phase for the integrated memory controller deals with 100% of that; it is not very suitable for providing power to 125W and/or overclocked 125W processors, and overloading often causes it to catch fire. Hence my 8+1/8+2 recommendation.

To power a good graphics card + a 1090T you will want at least a 550W power supply, but unless you plan to go CFX/SLI there's really no need to go above that. If you don't even plan to get a graphics card, any cheap power supply (even the 430CX) will do, even with a 125W processor. The best power supply choices I have found are:
Corsair 430CX - $35 AR. (No graphics card plans)
XFX 650W - $65 AR. (Good for handling a 125W+ processor + two cards in CFX/SLI. It's basically my power supply but with a brand name rather than OEM and it is modular )

As for heatsinks, you're done. $15 AR and great cooling capability.
