impur Posted October 28, 2009 Share Posted October 28, 2009 I know we have some techies here and i'm building a new computer so I thought i'd get some ideas from yous guys. Here is what i've got: Antec skeleton case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129056 SAPPHIRE 100265HDMI Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102822 DYNAPOWER USA ADW-50063 Peak: 500W ATX Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817162010 I have the optical drives as well. For my next purchase i'm looking to buy a CPU/Motherboard combo to save some money. Seems you can get the combo for about 10-20 less than doing it separately. So i've been an AMD guy for the last 5 years or so. I don't necessarily prefer AMD over Intel but AMD seems to be the best bang for the buck. I'll be using this computer for gaming, some video editing very rarely, and as a HTPC. I'll be going with a seagate 1tb SATA HD as well as picking up a few SATA/IDE adapters so I can still use the 3 HDs i have now, which are IDE. I think i've narrowed it down to this CPU/MB combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.265477 AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor GIGABYTE GA-MA790GPT-UD3H AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard I'd like to keep the CPU/MB combo under $300, and I plan to purchase a 2nd video card and run them in CrossFire. What do you think? Decent combo? Any suggestions? Dos or don'ts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
