AMD Build ~$1050 Budget

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.

I'm going to build a new Gaming PC in a week or so and need suggestions/revisions. I only need these specific components and everything else I have already (OS, monitor, keyboard/mice, drives, etc.) Here's what I have so far for roughly around the 1050 budget (Newegg):


Lian Li Lancool PC-K62
Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB
AMD Phenom II X4 965
Hyper 212+
ASUS M4A89GTD Pro
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB DDR3 1600
SeaSonic X750
SAPPHIRE AMD HD 6950


Help appreciated.

Uhh...
-920 is AM2+ CPU (no DDR3)
-There's better 1600 CL7-8-7 for the price (try G.Skill Ripjaws)
-1x 6950 may be better than 2 6850s

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've taken a few of them and revised my original build. Thanks.

Swapping AMD Phenom II X4 965 for the 955 (-20)
I'll get that G.SKILL Ripjaws ram mentioned above over my original one (was CL 9). (+20)


More suggestions welcome.

Probably because if you can pickup a cpu @ microcenter you'll save big... Just an example of how much you can save:
Intel 2600k off newegg: 319.99$
Micro center: 279.99$

Microcenter charges tax though, so it's like 20 savings only.
