possible build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
About a year I had a Pc build for me and I have been wanting to build one myself as a learning device. As in to pratice overclocking, and other stuff.

In the past week i have made a list of components and wanted to know what you guys thought of of my possible build.

Case - NZXT M59 - 001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

MB - ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

Video Card - EVGA 512-P3-1212-LR GeForce 210 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Power Supply - COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500-PCAR-A3-US 500W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply

CPU - AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2GHz Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Desktop Processor - C3 Revision HDZ555WFGMBOX

Heat sink - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Ram - CORSAIR XMS3 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

DVD Drive - ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM

I know it's low end but I don't have the money to build a gaming rig or the know how.

you will probably want a better video card as a gt210 won't run much of anything well, maybe a gt240 or 5570? The rest looks good for a low end build though

GeForce 210 was mainly just to a video card that was cheap. If i ever build rig and its stable after i overclock it. I might up grade the video card and sell the rig afterwards. but if i can find one thats better but for a good deal I will into it.

Don't buy 2x1GB RAM. All 2x1GB kits of RAM are now ripoffs... and the majority of generic 1333 CL9 kits no matter what size are also ripoffs as well. A good choice would be Kingston HyperX Blu 1600 CL9 2x2 $50, $35 AR or OCZ Special Ops 1600 CL8 2x2 $40, $30 AR

That's a pretty long wait Black Friday was really hectic here though, you should've seen me put out all those build suggestions. It was so much busier back then. I'm not really looking forward to it
by black friday this year AMD Bulldozer/Vision FX will be out. Just so you know

Keep in mind that if you need a quad core chip you should get a quad core chip. Don't gamble on having a 555 that will unlock to 4 cores. That said, 2 cores is good enough for most people and you can probably get up to 3.8Ghz at stock voltages with the C3 stepping.

This. Unlocking should be a bonus, not requirement.

Same reason as above, moeny thats why im just getting a x2 and hopfully a x4 if it unlocks. Plus I want experience in unlocking cores and overclocking cpu's other than the cpu multiplier
