Amd build low budget room to grow - Page 2

post #11 of 18
You are all spending way too much for generic 1333 9-9-9 RAM.
The best 2x2GB choice on NCIX: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2GB 1600 9-9-9 1.5V $46

Will this ram work with the CPU and motherboard I will be using
And will I have to make any bios. Changes
I like lower priced ram
It allows me to get other things
Thanks

You may have to manually set the speed & timings in the voltage but that's easy and that's it. The Ripjaws are a very good kit that can overclock well and are QVL-compatible on the majority of AMD boards/CPUs.

I got in all my parts and here is my build

AMD Athlon II x2 260 3.2Ghz 2x1MB L2
ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AMD 790X
Crucial 4GB (2x2GB)
Cooler Master HAL922M
Seasonic Energy Plus 750W 80+ Silver
Seagate 500GB SV35.5 Barracuda 7200rpm SATA300
ASUS Radeon HD5770 CuCore

Everything is together and working great
I was lucky on the day of my purchase the Crucial came in and fixed my Ram problem Crucial is way better then the Patriot would be

Thanks for the help

Whats even better my rig against an i5 and me hosting a peer to peer mmo and i am getting more bars then the i5 and we have the same internet
so i am way happy (The i5 2.66Ghz ASUS eah 4870 and the rest is about the same)

Total cost with taxes and Canadian dollars725.63
and i got a used Artic cooling pro for 15.00 cash

Bit of an overkill power supply unless you did that on purpose for room to grow. I can build a good 6 build for $725 CAD, did so for a client and that was a few months ago when prices were higher. I guess it all comes down to personal parts choice here.

Nice setup and congrats !

I don't think the psu is over kill. Definitely future proof. Its too bad you didn't have enough for the Athlon II x4.
What dimms are you using ? Temps ?

The dude I bought my new/old GTX 280 off today, said he unlocked his Athlon II x2 to x4, with no Lv3 cache. If you are going to try, I would update to the latest bios first.

The PSU is for the future when i go to phase II bigger CPU and another 5770
2 harddrives and raid them together Window 7 64bit
I have one older 120 GB harddrive that i will then put my Windows xp 32bit on and dual boot so games and programs that will not run on Windows 7 will be there

The CPU is only a 2X just so i can play with overclocking and if i burn it out replacing it will not be to expencive
