Build Advice needed for AM2+

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Can you guys check this build idea?
The budget is set, and this is what I came up with.
I play games like ME, Elder Scrolls, and Dragon Age II when it comes out.

Phenom II X4 920
MSI 785GTM-E45
G. Skill DDR2 4GB 1066
XFX Radeon HD 6850
Corsair H50
Antec Sonata Proto

I already have a 750w Corsair PSU, and I play at 1680x1050. I just cant spend much and want the biggest bang for my buck for the next two/three years.

Good AM2+ build or is the 6850 overkill?

Definitely don't even think about pairing CPU with that motherboard.
Not only is it MSI, it is 3+1 power phase. 3+1 power phase to begin with is unacceptable for 125W processors, but the fact that it is also MSI makes ti 2x worse.
Besides, an AM3 build would be much cheaper nowadays due to board & RAM cost.

No problem, Very weird. considering you cant realy go wrong unless you somehow on purpose decide to switch every single URL hyperlink
Code:

[URL="http://what-ever-link-url-here.meh"] HYPERLINK [/URL] 

I blame VB - anyways, build looks alright so far, just gotta wait on the budget requirement

Don't buy Hyper 212+ at Newegg, it is a total ripoff. For a few bucks more you could get a Zalman CNPS10X. Otherwise get 212+ at

, $28 free shipped.
