First build, starting off right with AMD

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So this is going to be my very first build. I had been looking at parts on newegg now for months and finally got some cash when I saw a combo deal pop up that had some stuff I liked, and figured I would save some cash at the same time.
I'm still needing a GPU, and a CD/DVD Drive, but most of the parts were ordered last night, and are expected to show up on the 26th!

On to the the parts list (so far)

Case-$99.99-Rosewill ARMOR Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147047


Processor-$199.99-AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103849


Motherboard-$149.99-ASUS M4A89GTD PRO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131631


RAM-$49.99-Patriot G Series ‘Sector 5’ Edition 4GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220436


HDD-$59.99-Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148697


PSU-$59.99-Rosewill Green Series 630W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182200



These are the parts so far! Like I said I am still in need of a GPU(looking at 5770's) and a CD/DVD drive.
The parts listed so far will be arrive on the 26th.

Needed/Wanted parts
5770 1GB GPU
CD/DVD Drive
Corsair H70

If you guys have any questions or comments post away and let me know! This will be my first build, so all critique is welcome!

Is it possible to swap things out at this point or is everything on its way?

Because Things I would change are PSU, HDD and mobo. There's better stuff in that price range

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-096-_-Product - seasonic 620w bronze

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-185-_-Product = samsung f3 1tb

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-193-_-Product - TA890FXE

Unfortunately there isn't. Since it came as a combo deal, I don't think there is a way for me to send back individual parts of it to purchase others. I was thinking about possibly selling some of the parts on here, but I believe I need like 25 or 35+rep to make those threads.

OP is in the United States, remember
I don't see any problem with the current parts, the HDD even dropped in price $5 lately.
You might want to look at this RAM, same price and much better

Lol,you beat me to it.
I just grabbed the 8 gig kit,hopefully it solves my stability issues.
@ OP,even though it says "designed for Intel" it works in AMD motherboards as well. I had to ask about this myself on here. IMO,Newegg should list it compatible with AMD Phenom II as well.

Sorry to crap on your thread, but why is this in the AMD CPU section? Regardless, everything looks good. IDK why you like that case. For those $s, you can get much better (like 900 or HAF). One big thing I would mention is the PSU. This is an extremely important part of a build, and therefore I would not cheap out on this.

Seams like a alright build to me, I'd say go for it or you could just wait for the Bulldozer CPU's to come out which should whoop the Phenom's away and the latest Intel CPU's (Sandybridge) hopfully

Wouldnt it be better to get a mobo with an AM3+ socket?

Nice build but you're gamer or what? games don't benefit from x6 yet so save some money and go with better gfx card.

My thoughts exactly. But, seeing he's willing to spend over $100 for CPU cooling, I assumed CPU performance was 1st on his list. BTW, you have pictures of Hobo's rig? How many cans of duster do you go through in a month?
