New AMD-ATI build!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Recently came into some money and looking to build a whole new machine from the ground up. I would like:

Graphics: 6950 (unlockable)
CPU: Higher end AMD quad or Hex core.
HDD: Between 640GB and 1.5TB (doesn't have to be one drive)

The rest is up to you guys if you are up to it. Looking for higher quality stuff.

Price max of $1150

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

P.S. I do not need an OS and I would like a LED backlit monitor

Can I ask what the build is going to be used for?

Why not just install a 6950 into your current build? I can not see any point in upgrading your current rig with an AMD cpu/mobo until BD is released. Unless you really need six cores unfortunately SB is the way to go atm.

1. the choice of triple channel memory is unwise and will hurt performance because it WON'T run triple channel
2. 1100T not worth it over 1090T
3. Really really really bad choice of a PSU

It's morning so I haven't any time for another new full suggestion, however when I'm back this afternoon I will be able to give you a solid $1150 build with no less than a 1090T, 4-8GB of nice DDR3 RAM, and a solid state drive.
EDIT: Can't find my recent $1100 build, it'll have to wait till this afternoon! Hang in there!

Maybe just a case/gpu upgrade? Possibly some more storage.
