AMD Build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello, I actually want to build a AMD PC at least once just for a second computer dedicated to folding and maybe a little LAN party for games.


Now I went snooping on Microcenter and found they have a (in my opinion) a great combo deal on processors and mobos.

http://www.microcenter.com/specials/...ndlePROMO.html

Question is base on those selected CPUs and deals, any of them worth it?

I have no real experience with AMD CPU's except an Athlon 64 X2 when I was knowledgeable in tech.

Good chance I will probably not OC on it less need be.

Price will not be an issue since I will handle all the other components myself.

Aside from the deals that pair 125W processors with mediocre motherboards with 3+1 power phases, they're all worth it
I actually got one of those deals once when I was in San Francisco. Helped my dad save a load of money for his office PC.

Get the Deal on the top left and:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231277

At least that is my recommendation. The sugo is a cool case and it has good cooling, plus the size is always a pro.

i'm rocking the 785GM P45 and yeah, it's a good deal IMO.

don't plan to OC much with the mobo, if at all, and it only has one SYSFAN header, as well as 4 USB ports and no HDMI, but it gets the job done.

as for the X4 640 it's a good processor that gets the job done, too. truth be told i am surprised with how fast it is for only costing $100. apparently with the right board they can OC well, too

what's the budget with the full rig? maybe we can spec out something more complete for ya

Your lucky that you are building one now, when I was building mine back in the days (2009) I had to pay $150 for my RAM, now it's only $50 for it...

I like the HTPC case, it really looks nice and I can vouch for the RipJaws since I ordered them for a friend who was building a first time PC.

The 460 however I have a spare 5770 lying around so who ever playing on the PC can suffer a bit

To be honest I'm wonder if the X6 were any worth it for the price?

Edit: I have a 5770 lying around: That leaves me a GFX price out of the rig since it is not (my current in my sig) for OCing and dedicated Coreal Painter and gaming.

Leaves me PSU, Some DDR3, an aftermarket CPU cooler, and a case since I have other parts just lying around

Your SMP (Or whatever it's called) folding right? Cause if you are then the best bet will be too make sure you have 4 cores.
