1st, how much is your budget?

2nd, what do you intend it for? gaming?

The 720BE is basically a 940BE that's clocked 200MHz lower, and has a core disabled.

For multitasking one would go with the 940, but for gaming the 720 is the way to go.


Here's a sample overview of what to go with based on your needs.

Gaming: 720BE + High-End GPU

Milti-Tasking: 940BE + Mid-Range GPU

there is no such thing as best possible build... for me I think of AMD as getting the best out of your budget right now... but if you are looking for a build that you are going to sit on for quite some time then its best to wait... 940BE is not an AM3 socket so i wouldnt suggest you getting a 940BE if you are planning on using AM3 Board and DDR3 in the future... am3 chips are compatible with AM2+ boards so you can get a AM2+ board that wouldnt break the bank... then again you can get i7 since you dont have a budget in mind... comparing a best build of AMD with Intel i7 wouldnt work lol...

the problem is you have no budget to work with... amd is more on a budget wise build and not about going all out... best thing you can do is wait till you get the budget... people in here can throw you any build as long as you have a target budget...

well it's really tough to build without any specified budget but here you go

cpu+mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.165047
hdd http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136322
psu+casing: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.165272
ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166
this gpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102801

that should be nice for a start.

honestly i'd wait for the 945be to come out for ddr3 support for better overclockability.

All of you fail..... The best AMD build out there right now is till in the hands of AMD. Patiently wait another month and then get the Phenom 945 plain and simple. It is all the Phenom II's are based on with out anything disabled. That and an 790FX DDR3 Mobo and GPu's of choice. 3 4890 1gb should do. The answer for AMD right now is wait to see what april 6th has in store.

just buy your GPU, PSU, CASE, FANS then next month check out 945BE then if theres a better AM3 Board get it and also a ddr3 ram... if not get a 720BE+any SB750 mobo just take into consideration whos the maker and what are the response from other people...
