so i'm kind of stuck on my new build...advice?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok so here it goes


i can finally afford to upgrade again but i dont want to spend too much, this is what i have on my wish list right now


SUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard



AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX


G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBRM


and a new version of windows because well, yea.


anyways, total is 400 dollars. I also wanted a newer graphics card but thats going to have to wait because i need to buy some new tires/rims/body and maybe a new esc for my sprint 2 drift (it's awesome, get one)

now, i know the l3 cache is missing from the athlon quads, but would i miss it? i mean at the end of the day a quad is a quad aside from clock speed right? or is l3 cache like secret sauce is krabby pattys?

also, the difference between 870G and 880G is the onboard video right? because if i can get a cheaper board and still have the same performance then i'd be glad to! and also, does anyone use this ram? is there any better for the price or i'm fine where im at?


i wish i could just suck it up and just click buy (with my GTX460) but i'm trying to save and im doing good so far but im letting myself do a very small upgrade *plan on getting new case soon, haf932? phantom?* and i need stuf for my rc car, so i have to take that into account as well! anyways!

thanks in advanced guys, hope to hear from ya soon

why wait to buy new GPU ?
Mobo 99$ (-15$ MIR)
RAM 45$
CPU 105$
MSI GTX 460 150$ (-20$ MIR)
total: 400$
i noticed u have a zalman cpu cooler im not sure if it can be mounted on AM3 but if it cant i recommend this : Corsair A50 for only 15$

Win7+reg cleaner 90$ (instead of original 95$ )

Would have to agree with Rabbit here
Take out the 1333 CL8 RAM (1600 CL9 is better in every way)
870 chipsets are known to OC somewhat better apparently

im pretty sure the heatsink will work, i read somewhere that it did, anyone confirm? if not i will check after work

as for that ram, i've been with g.skill for 5 years and i dont plan to move away. is there better gskill ram that i listed?

and i looked at that board, but i want newer a newer chipset board because i always buy yesteryears chipset. i want to be able to have current gen hardware lol, whats the difference between the 790x and the 880g board?
