If its cheap, yes then get a new 890FX board and a decent GPU when you can afford it.

The biostar 890fx
and the ASROCK 890fx will OC the 1055 to 4.0 with ease for a decent price.
Sorry,

My initial question was if the combo from newegg was a good one. It got shot down real quick.

As for price. I would like to have as much bang for bucks.
I'm not sure if $500 is to low?? The price of the Combo seemed affordable.
I would not be using this other than for the office.

I'm new to the forum, so I really don't want to upset anyone.

You won't upset anyone. $500 is a really good price for everything... however, if you want more performance, you have to pay for it. You shouldn't make a quick decision unless you absolutely need to. There is a large wealth of information on this forum where you can learn from and make an informed decision... I would highly recommend it.

The answer is a plain no.
Heck the mobo is a 3+1, won't be safely capable of supporting a 1055T.
And heck, for $65 you could get a much much more reliable PSU than that garbage!

Give me a few moments to match that with something better... all Newegg combo DIY kits are garbage and should be nonexistent. There is not one that I haven't beat with my own suggestions.

PeaceMaker,

I really appreciate you giving me you time.

I would really like to get something. I've been reading this forum for a little over a week.
There are so many options I just keep going around in circles.

Newegg combo deals are just a sneaky way of making you buy crap parts.

Assuming you have a GPU:
Phenom II x6 1055T + M4A87TD EVO - $262
Corsair XMS3 2x2GB 1600 CL9 + Corsair CX-600 PSU - $105, $75 AR
HEC Blitz case - $42 shipped
Samsung F3 1TB HDD - $51 shipped after promo [Superbiiz]
Lite-ON 24X - $17.10 shipped after promo

Total cost of your combo: $459 + $36 shipping total = $495
My parts: $477.10 shipped, $447.10 AR
Nearly over $50 saved, and I didn't even try. Parts quality is CONSISTENTLY much better.

THIS is why you never buy a Newegg combo DIY kit

I would like more details about your build though for further optimization. Do you plan to overclock? Do you already have a video card or not?

Thanks xd_1771,

This build should get me going for awhile?

Should I get that PSU by its self?
I was told I should probably get 2X4gb ram. So I'm going to look for some ram if you think that PSU is the way to go.

Ram suggestion was
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226095
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
Good reviews!

For gaming and tasks short of RAM-intensive apps like video editing, you won't need any more than 4GB.
Also that RAM kit in particular you selected is a very bad one... doesn't OC very well. With a 1055T by the way you want 1600Mhz RAM no matter what, it is the most optimal most especially if you are going to OC (with any 1333 kit especially CL9 you are bound to be held back).

This RAM would be $1 less after promo and much better for a 2x4GB kit, ignoring the lack of heatspreaders. However, you don't get the Corsair RAM/PSU savings.
The other thing you don't buy aside from Newegg combo DIY kits is generic 1333 CL9 memory - there will always be a better choice out there for a better price. That 1333 CL9 memory you're buying regardless of brand/heatspreaders is the same spec/quality stuff used in prebuilt computers... and often a 1600Mhz kit will match or beat it's price anyway.

This may be a dumb question.
Will there be a difference in usage between the ram I have now and this ram?

I have 8gb of ram now and I can max it out.

I'm ready to buy. So I just want to be sure before I hit confirm.

Should stick with the PSU or a different since I will be getting the 8GB?
