Total system rebuild

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok so my Motherboard is flaky, my 9850BE is slow and to top it off my GTX275 had to be downclocked to stop artifact.

I was looking at a few things, namely

AMD Athlon II X3 455 (I've heard they unlock 99% of the time)
4gb DDR3 1333 SuperTalent
and
Radeon HD6870

How does this look and what motherboard would you recommend?

Also Monitors native res is 1366x768

Whats your budget?
post #3 of 12
There is no number when it comes to unlocking chance. Either you do or you don't. Also, unlocking is only a bonus, NEVER rely on unlocking a processor for that extra performance.

Also you could likely fit DDR3-1600 into that budget.

budget is 600 tops, but would prefer to spend less.

As far as unlocking goes, I will be getting the CPU from a coworker where i work, he ran it at 3.9ghz unlocked to quad for the last 8 months.

800 series for the mobo.

The Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 I have clocks decently with good 8+2 power phase but only 16x/4x crossfire.

The Asrock 870 has built in mosfet cooling and 8x/8x crossfire on sale for 90

If you want to step up look into some of the 890gx boards most will do 8x/8x crossfire and clock well. If you don't care about crossfire, the pcie bandwidth isn't as important unless you have other pcie cards (sound, raid, etc).

If the sapphire 5850 comes back in stock at 150 it is better price / performance vs the 6870.

crossfire/SLI are of zero importance to me as i game at 1366x768 lol.

Got my buddies X3 450 and where i work my boss called and said the MSI 870-G45 is on sale this week but he forgot to mark it down and he wont be in this week and wanted me to, so its marked down to 60 bucks so im gonna grab that, used it in alot of client builds its AMD SB770 with 710NB, and the same board my friend used to get this X3 to quad and running at 3.9

MSI 870-G45 is a bad idea for unlocking to quad & OC-ing due to finicky VRM design
Don't do it, the likelihood is you'll end up blowing something up

same board he had it oc'd on and unlocked we also carry this board in the shop i work in, no customer has yet to bring it back, and quite a few openly discussed overclocking. You may have your VRM info wrong

Good choice, you'll have a bit more performance and you save $60
