post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
well i just got this crappy comp few weeks ago and today i fianly decided is time to hear what others think of it.

video:[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fNypdtmf8c"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fNypdtmf8c[/ame]


there are specs in video but just to be sure...
Case: AeroCool Syclone II blue (120mm blue LED fan, 120mm fan, 140mm fan)
Mobo: ASUS M4A87TD EVO
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4 GHz (optional OC 4.1 GHz)
CPU cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus (upgraded with 2x 120mm blue LED fans)
Graphic: XFX Radeon HD6850 1GB
PSU: XFX PRO650W Core Edition
RAM: G.Skill F3-10666CL7D-4GBXH 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3

so is it worth 700€ (996,80 $), any recomendations?

Case: Its personal preference so I cant say much. Although we can;t see much of it.

Motherboard: Is that the m4a88td EVO or the m4a87td? I thought I saw a glimpse of a 4+1 power phase...which would make it the reg. m4a87td. But it was hard to tell because of the dim lighting... If that is the case and its got the 4+1 just don't overclock with it and it should hold up fine. If it is the EVO then its a pretty solid board.

CPU: its a solid processor but the 955BE would have saved you $20-30 and its only a 200mhz difference. IMO the price difference is not worth the difference in performance.

CPU Cooler: the 212 is a solid performer.

RAM: Specs don't seem quite that good at 1066 but that depends on how much money you spent on the set really.

GPU: the 6850 is a solid budget card IMO and from what I have heard and read.

PSU: the XFX 650w power supply I have heard both good and bad on....more good though. I personally would have gone with a corsair, but thats just me.




For the amount of money spent you could have definately made a much better system, and there are definitely changes I personally would have made. But overall it seems like a decent build to start with.
