post #11 of 18
heres my recomendation :
Mobo Asrock 870 90$ (same price as the mobo u choose but this one has heatsinks on power phase , crossfire support and a whole lot of other feautures)
PSU Antec 520w 40$ 520w is more then enought for ur system
GPU 6870 198$ after promo code and 178$ after rebate
RAM 45$ (20$ after rebate) unbeatable for price performance
and my personal favorite Hec Blitz Case+DVD\\RW 53$ shipped

Don't use a $40 PSU. Spend $70-80 on a quality 650W and save yourself alot of trouble now and/or later.

The psu Rabbit suggested would be just fine, but for a few more $$, this is a good deal and its modular to boot.

@Rabbit

Damn. The mobo you suggested is really nice. Too bad it's not available where I'm at. X.x I've done more tweaking based on your vital suggestions. Here's what I've got.

CPU: (from Phenom II x4 965 BE) to
Phenom II x4 955 BE

Mother Board : (from Gigabye 880GM-UD2H) to

ASRock 890GX Extreme3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-188-_-Product

PSU: from (OCZ stealth x stream II 600 watts) to
Cooler Master (GX series) 80 plus 650w
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...er%20gx%20650w

HD: same one (WD caviar blue 500GB) only this time, the SATA3 ver.

casing:
Thermaltake v4 BE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ermaltake%20v4

GPU:
Sapphire HD 6870
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-913-_-Product

RAM stays the same
--------

- The reason behind the 650w PSU was because people kept saying don't hold back on the PSU. XD hence the 650w for more 'breathing space'.
- Going down (if it's really going down at all) to Phenom 955 BE from 965 BE loosened up the budget a bit, hence the better board. ( I assume)

AGAIN

Thanks for all the responses. I doubt that I would get this far by merely reading. It's very evident that asking you guys was a great idea.

No on the Coolermaster GX series (see this list) - OCZ600 is a much better psu and more than enough wattage.

From HardOCp's review:
"The Bottom Line
The Cooler Master GX 650W is a mediocre power supply for couple of years ago, and an outright failure today. The Build Quality of the unit is nothing to write home about (unless it is a warning), the topology is old and outdated, and the exterior is flash over substance. Coupled with this we have mediocre voltage, poor by today's standards efficiency, and out of specification DC Output Quality. One upping this poor showing is that fact that the unit was completely unable to complete our load tests at 100v AC input. That makes the GX 650W not just a failure by our standards, but rather a double failure and an ugly one at that. Making matters worse is the fact that this unit is priced at up to $100 in retail and $70 online. (Users can pick up the much better Seasonic M12II-620Bronze from Amazon with Free Prime Shipping for $98.29). As it stands, there really is not anyone that this unit would be a good fit for that we can think of, and certainly not for its intended crowd of "gamers." Cooler Master should be ashamed and owes all gamers and hardware enthusiasts an apology."

review

Edit: Based on Outervision.com power supply calculator. Your system overclocked to 3.8 and running multiple HDDs and lots of fans only pulls 504w (554w psu recommended).

But it is a quality PSU
It's on sale
will power any CPU/GPU setup (except maybe GTX 590) safely, just no CrossfireX expandability for the most part

Where I'm from, that $40 PSU is at around $80-ish. XD I'm pinning the PSU basis on xd 1771 and Rabbit on this; I don't see myself going Crossfire.
post #18 of 18
I would consider a 6950 but that is pushing the budget a little........

Wait, what's the budget again?
