New AMD - ATI Based Build - Page 4

post #31 of 40
Thread Starter 
Oh and i have also been looking at the GA-MA785G-UD3H it looks really quite good. But i have just realized that they have stopped making this board, along with all the boards i have looked at. So does this mean that company's who make motherboards have stopped making AM2+ boards?

If this is correct then i am in a sticky situation. and may have to buy new ram as well. Because i don't want to buy used components.

Not sure about the DDR2 boards so I can't really comment on it. If you plan on going DDR3, that board ppl were talking about can be had cheaper here (if they ship UK, not sure actually).

Sorry for asking all these nooby questions. But what would i be better off doing, going for an Nvidia or AMD Chipset?


personally i think AMD/ATI chipsets are better, and dont worry to much about not being able to get the M3A32 new, i bought mine second hand off Ebay for £45 and i have never had a single problem with it, i made sure thay had good feedback and had sold other pc components before, and it payed off. however obviously up to you.

well some stockists still have the AM2+ boards but they are very scarce now, so simply you will either have to buy a second hand AM2+ board or you will have to buy a new AM3 and DDR3 memory, i know which i would do.....

VAT is Value Added Tax, which simply is just yet another tax. It's paid on "supposed" luxury items, whilst not on essentials like some foods and clothing. In reality, food designations make no sense, and you have to pay vat on things like fuel, which in this life time is hardly a "luxury", especially if you live in a rural area with no public transport, not to mention heating, in a cold country.

The real use of it in government terms is that they can sting everyone with it, unlike income tax which affects the higher paid more. Whether you earn £60 a week or £2000 you've still got to eat, and you still get cold.



What are you on? Can you send some to me?
Yeah I forgot it went back up to the normal 17.5%

Good explanation, basically in the UK we get taxed 3 times essentially!

For fuel over here it goes like this:

Our wage gets taxed at the source, then there is 80% odd tax added onto the fuel just for the government and then finally vat gets added ontop of all that for added measure!

Me and my dad have had a chat. And we had decided that we would go for an AM3 motherboard and sell the DDR2 RAM we have. Here is the spec i am looking at.

AMD Phenom 965 £121.91
Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 £88.99
Seagate Barracuda ST3500418AS 500GB £28.49
XFX Radeon HD 5850 1024MB £139.99
Mushkin 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz £42.29

That comes to a total of £421.67 or if we opt to go for 8GB of RAM then it will be £463.96

Those figures are just a quote from one website so i will be able to get it cheaper if i shop around. so not bad i think.

But what do you guys think?
post #36 of 40
1333Mhz? 9-9-9 or 8-8-8 generics? I'm pretty sure you could get a 1600 9-9-9 kit for the same or better price there.

I think that motherboard only supports 1333MHz unless i overclock the ram which i have no idea how to do it.
post #38 of 40
could try buying a bundle from like OCUK also i have seen that they have crosshair 3 formulas for like a 100 squids.

thats a good spec, you only need 4gb of ram TBH. 8gb is just not needed. to drop the price you could go for a gtx460 OR a ati 5770 as theyr eboth good cards for cheaper

No, ignore anything the motherboard says about memory speed support; there is an x8 memory multiplier (200Mhz base clock x8 = 1600Mhz) that is often not mentioned and even ignored in motherboard support. Actual speed capability/support comes down to the CPU revision due to the integrated memory controller.
