First Build; AMD X6 - Page 4

post #31 of 66
For your Intel Wishlist: Change the i5-2400 to a i5-2500k. Check out the prices at MicroCenter. I believe the 2500k was listed at $179.00. That's $10 cheaper than the 2400, and should be able to OC.

Also, try to get a Mobo with the P67 chipset.

As for the CPU Heatsink; Just get a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+. They are cheap ($24-30) and perform pretty well.

I think only the p67 board will increase too much the final price.

I am planning on taking the "intel" wishlist out. I just overall seem to hear better things about AMD, then again I don't want to try to start a flame war. I currently am in High School and I asked my Tech teacher (vocational school) about AMD / Top of the line CPUs and he points me to this website. Although the whole chart is FILLED with Intels, I am not interested in them, I honestly don't know why.

As for AMD processor, it seems i keep coming back to X4 3.2 Ghz. Current up to date wishlist I'll try to put in every single one of my posts. Updated List AMD 3.2 X4 with coolermaster suggestion Although there is no DVD drive listed, I have one picked out. No need to ask help for that, haha. I will definitely, again, look into the combo deals when i do purchase. And, when i do I may put it in build log smile.gif .

Also, yet again...thank you overclock.net users for the help!

Do you need a copy of Windows, or do you plan on getting Linux/automagickallydownloading Windows?

And I still recommend not using the XFX 6850. People don't seem to think highly of XFX anymore.

Get that RAM instead of your current option - it has a better latency (Phenoms love low latencies, apparently) for the same price (use the Promo Code)

And try out this combo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.628393

My teacher at the vocational center really hates asus' for some reason. I do like the gigabyte dual bios, but...honestly I don't think I'd need it. I magically have Windows.

Lol.

Anyways, I'm sure the combined knowledge of overclock.net will triumph over your vocational teacher. Besides, you save $$$!

As for personal opinion, I have no grudge against ASUS.
I hear they make good GPUs, and my monitor and mobo is from them. No dead pixels, no BIOS failures.

Indeed overclock users shall overpower! My teacher, he is a very smart man x 100, but he is sort of unwilling to change just because of one bad thing that happened to him with an ASUS motherboard. He also loves the Gigabyte Dual Bios, as I mentioned before.

It seems as my Wishlist for my very first build is ever changing, thanks to overclock users! Keep 'em coming, I want to learn what I can do to make my build amazingly awesome, haha. (Thanks again).
