post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok so far I have a build going under 600. And I want to keep it there. Any suggestions or recommendations?

http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/8484/79141050.jpg thats the pic what I have so far, and after the coupons it is 559, then a rebate its 529.

I have a case already, monitors, all the peripherals.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131651
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103808
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226095
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121391
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182200

Im not a noob at building, but a friend directed me here for expert advice.

Thank you for the suggestion. I Guess I should mention what I'm going to be using my PC for.
I like to render videos and capture video from my PS3 and Xbox and what not.

Why the less ram? Also why is the video card more, but the same model technically?
And what are your views on the mobo?

The ASUS vid card is 10$ cheaper than the EVGA with rebate.

Does RAM not help with rendering? I figured the CPU + ram helped with rendering. I know my Dual core + 4gb of ram right now isn't great for rendering.
Is the 300mhz speed increase, that much of a difference?

here's couple better options :
PhII 965+Mobo 219$ AR (mobo 8+2 power phase , CF x8x8)
6850 160$ AR (CF in future)
XFX 650 65$ AR (seasonic design , 80+ bronze and modular , will handle CF 6850 & SLI 460)
RAM1 1600 Mhz CL8 35$ AR
RAM2 1600 Mhz CL8 40$ AR
RAM3 1600 Mhz CL8 35$ AR
CPU Cooler1 25$ AR
CPU Cooler2 25$ AR
or u can go with sli mobo and 460 :
Mobo1 71$
Mobo2 95$
MSI 460 130$ AR
and another good cpu as alternative
PhII 925 125$ (95w C3)
(if u go with sli mobo1 , ram1 , gtx 460 , psu , PhII 925 and one of the coolers it comes to 455$ after rebates , get rebates then add another 460 for sli )
any of those builds will bring good perfomance , good luck

Better 890FX Motherboard, Faster Cheaper Ram, Better PSU... Them are the reasons and GPU was just personal Choice sorry.

Edit...
And that ram will overclock better than the one you listed so its not only 300Mhz Difference, and yes 4Gb should be enough

Ok so I played around with RabbitGT's suggestions.



Thoughts? Some review of the MOBO said the motherboard only accepts 2 sticks of 1600mhz ram?

Is 8gb of ram really worth it for video rendering? Will it improve my performance greatly?
