First AMD build collective input needed lol!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Normally build intels, thought I'd have a cracked at an AMD. Just need to bounce this idea off someone lol. None of this is set in stone, just a basic idea. Any changes that I could make just lemme know. Thanks in advance.

If you want an AMD build, I suggest you wait for BD.

Or try and get an AM3 MOBO that MAY support BD in the future.
http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...bulldozer.html

If you must build now though, a 2500K is a much better option.
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=186

Be sure to look at where it says lower is better / higher is better.

Some reviews showed the 2500K hitting 4.4 on the STOCK cooler, and they all can do 4.5 - 5 GHZ on air. Saving you $100 from the H70, and you could even use an A70 even a CM 212 to offset the cost difference of the 2500K vs 970.

Don't go with a 970. Its basically a good OC'ing 965/955. Save yourself a couple bucks and get a 955 or 965. They will OC to stock clocks of 970 with ease, even higher really. Then take that money you saved and get a faster set of RAM. Latencies are ok, but 1333 is meh. Also I wouldn't get the H70. Its basically a decent or top end air cooler, and IMO I'd get just that. A decent air cooler like a CM Hyper 212 that will still keep your CPU cool, but save you some money. Then take THAT money and dump it back into a better GPU, although that one isn't bad. Other than that, looks OK.


Oh yea, can't remember if its that MSI board with some iffy VRM's/mosfets, but its supposedly only problematic with hexcores, but even still. You can get a decent board for alot less. Opt for an Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3. Great board, solid OC'er and all the same features pretty much.

I see you've got a nice loose budget. Here's a suggestion:
Phenom II x6 1090T + MSI 890FXA-GD65 - $327 [This MSI is a new design with 8+2 VRM and is not dangerous - also has AM3+ CPU support for AMD FX-Series expansion]
G.Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB 1600 CL9 + Gigabyte dual fan GTX 560 TI - $305 after promo code EMCKGJE69
Antec TP-750 Modular 750W + Lancool K62 - $165

- $60.10 each [Amazon]
Thermalright Silver Arrow - $67 [see link] Similar to NH-D14 - outperforms both D14 and H70 stock fan wise
- $100 shipped

Total cost of your parts before rebate: $1199
Total cost of all my parts - $1084.20
x6 1090T, quality mobo, GTX 560 Ti (nice improvement from 460), modular PSU, better, bigger HDDs, a solid state drive, and a better cooler, all within $1100. Still $100 left. Get yourself a decent haircut?

Excellent overall suggestion minus forgetting to point out that the i5-2500K is the clear winner for CPU performance at this price point.

You can't use the $25 off promo in that combo special with the GX560 so it's actually better to break it up and buy them separately. since the promo code is worth more savings than the combo special.

i hope you are just citing those links for reference. don't buy those items at those prices, they're a ripoff. i would not get that processor for one thing. it performs too closely to a 955 or 965 but costs a lot more. if you want to spend as much as that 970 i'd rather get a 1055.

$100 for a psu.. that's a rip off, especially for the newer model corsairs. i picked up an XFX 650 modular with seasonic internals for $55 final as well as an older gen (better) corsair 650TX for $60 final. I would not pay $100 for that power supply. if you're not in an urgent hurry wait for deals.
