Budget Build - Confirm - Page 3

post #21 of 30
if the order hasnt shipped yet you can call or email them to cancel it
hopefully they can catch it in time

if there is a microcenter near you check them for a good amd am3 880-890 mobo

It's too late to cancel, and I live in a town with about 7,000. No microcenter. I think I may just get a super cheap system now...nothing fancy...maybe it will last me a year or two.

Would this PSU work for the 125Watt CPU, a 5770, and 890 chipset board?

IF not, what is the cheapest one I can get that will work with all of that?

Ah, I'm sorry you had to run into such problems the Elite 460 is pretty good, it's not an 80+ CPU but I usually recommend it for extreme budget builds (and not usually builds like yours); it's got 324W on the 12V rails (equivalent to around 27A) for continuous power, better and probably more acceptable at the very least.
This Xigmatek looks like a pretty good choice for you as well, though it's definitely not the best in quality (i.e. it's HEC built) apparently according to a reviewer this can actually push quite a few watts above load. It's 80+ Bronze rated too, a big plus definitely. It's $35+$2 shipping.

Okay thanks, I will purchase that if you think it's better than the cooler master I had, which was 460 Watts (50 more). What is that 8 Pin power connector for the CPU called on the power supply?

The 8-pin is the EPS12V. The Coolermaster may have 460W total power, but it is not 80+ rated (important on PSUs IMO) and only features 324W/460W on the 12V rails, while the Xigmatek features 80+ bronze, 384W/400W on the 12V rails and can apparently load quite a bit farther than that under load.

Ah, I see what you mean...I didn't notice that. Nifty! I will swap that on the list. Well, everything is set I think...besides the out of stock, super cheap DVD burner I wanted, hah. I have $210 in PayPal, the price to pay is $318 prior to shipping, and without that $16 Burner($23 replacement), looks like it will become $328 before shipping. I found a motherboard under this For Sale slot, right HERE. However he wants $90, so only 12 bucks off the nice Foxxcon I found, but it's used...and has one "quirk". I will try to wait another day for that DVD Burner...but I need to order this soon so that by the time I get the CPU here, I can test it shortly after and not be stuck with a bad one.
I Appreciate your help xd_1771 & ffejrxx.

Any last minute suggestions or ideas?

Cannot Confirm the Ram or the Power Color 5770. I only buy Sapphire.

Soo.... why 1066 CAS7 when you can get 1600 CAS9 for a slightly lower price (free shipping) after promo code?
In addition, for running only 4GB of RAM OP should be going with 2x2GB and not 1x4GB for proper dual channel.

I have used Power Color before, you pay 30 bucks more for the name "Saphire" printed on your card.
The ram reviews ON newegg all were good, even saying that the ram was easily O/Ced, not that I would try that.
Foxxcon, you've never heard of? It's one of the big names, mainly known for their cheaper value components, just like DFI was. ASRock is just a few steps behind Foxxcon I believe, and I had a friend build a system over ASRock that just kicked ASUS's butt. I also have had HORRIBLE support from Asus in the past, something that I would not shoot for unless I had to. This board I have looks perfectly fine IMO. It also supports 2x16x PCI-E...something rare for this price... Any other suggestions? I am open for motherboard suggestions, as long as they are similar (very similar if more expensive) in price to this $101 (with shipping) Foxxcon. The motherboard suggested MUST support crossfire with both slot speeds @ 16x and not the reduction that is common. (renders a second video card a rip-off)
