First time *nervous*

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hey Gods of overclock.net, this is my first build, i have a budget of $900. I will be using this computer for gaming, mainly Shogun 2: Total war and GW2 when they come out: Please keep in my mind that i wont be building this until around the 28th of march, if the recalled mother boards are back then i might get the Asus P8P67 Pro. Anyway i am very new at this so please let me know if anything is wrong or if i can get something for cheaper.

LOL, When I read the thread title I assumed it was a thread about virginity. I guess my mind is in the gutter.

Back on topic, What are your plans for a power supply? This is a crucial component that often gets overlooked.

That motherboard won't do. You need a socket 1155, the one you picked is 1156. There are three 1155 boards out now on Newegg, and some more are supposed to be available later this week.

Definitely go Biostar over that cheapo MSI one. The Biostar board should be good for 5ghz.

Edit:

Don't get the $100 board. Get this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-298-_-Product

Nothing wrong with going for a budget board, but if you plan on overclocking I wouldn't recommend the cheapest available.

Are you set on that case? If you need a cut a few bucks there are alternatives for cheaper.

The $105 one is also H67 rather than P67. And it is also mATX rather than full ATX.

Everything else looks good as far as I can tell.
