    Default Help choose my new pc!

    Hy pureOC!
    I am willing to buy a new computer ,cuz my old is getting very slow.

    I complied a new rig with these specs:

    AMD Phenom II 955BE processor
    Gigabyte 790FXA UD5 mobo.
    4gb Transcend AxERAM 2000mhz cl9 kit
    Sapphire or XfX HD5850 1gb
    Gigabyte Odin plus 600w psu
    Aerocool RS 9 case


    Iam from hungary,and i will buy the machine from hardware available in this country,for these prices.
    My max.amount is except 1050 USD ( 225.000Hungarian Forints)
    Next year i will upgrade the stock cooler to Corator DS.
    The RAM'S are 135 USD in my little country , cheaper than the DDR3 1600mhz XD
    Is the Corator DS applicable to this motherboard with these RAMs?

    I often use this pc to play multiplayer games,not video-converting,using apache,or photoshop

    The hardwares are in this site http://www.argep.hu/

    Keresés = Search ,1 USD is approx. 230 HUF.


    Are you know better configuration?

    Make sure you get C3 revision 955 as they overclock better them C2 revision. Also entertain the x 6 Phenoms. They start out just a little more($50 US) than the 955. It may be better for the long haul.

    Some may recommend a 890 chipset motherboard but the one you picked out is a real good one and overclocks great!

    Only thing besides this is maybe a 700W or 750W PSU for future endevours.

    Build looks good though..

    I know,the 1055T is better for long-term,but it isn't BE=not easy to overclock well.
    And under games,i think the 955BE is better.


    Any suggestion?

    Welcome to Pure OC !

    How much of a budget do you have to work with ? I would go with the 1090T BE and either the Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 or the Asus Crosshair IV Formula.

    As far as a GPU it would depend on how much money you have left in your budget, once you buy your CPU and motherboard.

    Ohh, I totally agree. With your needs your good to go. Just thought I would throw it in... The motherboard you picked out will overclock as well as the 890 chipsets so that is a good money saver item. Use all the savings to get the best GPU you can afford.

    i agree with the dr

    get the 1055T if you can afford it. you just have to overclock with a different method than a BE, it should still overclock as well.

    im wary of that ram speed, the IMCs in these chips havent been able to see nasty speeds iirc, and you may want to go with an X6 to be safe

    2000MHz memory is overkill. Save some money and go with 1600MHz kit instead, it will do just fine and be cheaper.

    That would be my suggestion of a system build in your budget. Those are Newegg prices, but I'm sure they're nearly the same where you can purchase.

    I'm having trouble with the currency conversion. I converted both into percentages per item and the prices match up decently. If you need it to be cheaper, shed it by changing the case and possibly the motherboard.

    Default I can't afford it.

    I bought the pc without the videocard yesterday ,and it will arrive tomorrow
    I think i have chosen the best in my budget.

    In my country, the prices are irregularly high.
    one HD5850 costs 330 $,and i can't afford any more of hardware.

    I will wait to prices getting lower,and i will buy a 5850,and 1 year later i will buy a second,and tweak the pci-e clocks,to eliminate the 8x-8x settings.




    Buy RAMs from hungary!

    The 200mhz 4gb Transcend kits are costs 140 $ in very limited numbers.

    I think i have chosen the best in my budget.

    In my country, the prices are irregularly high.
    one HD5850 costs 330 $,and i can't afford any more of hardware.

    I will wait to prices getting lower,and i will buy a 5850,and 1 year later i will buy a second,and tweak the pci-e clocks,to eliminate the 8x-8x settings.




    Buy RAMs from hungary!

    The 200mhz 4gb Transcend kits are costs 140 $ in very limited numbers.
    What did you get???

    Hi!
    Okay so judging by your question, you're really ready to go for the best laptop out there. My advice in order to get a durable, great looking, LIGHT (as in weight) laptop would be to go for a Dell. Remember, they're the makers of the amazing Alienware laptop! Besides the obvious advantages in terms of style and portability, they have added incentives like really fast shipping and great student discounts. You'd be getting the same awesome features you want for less. Plus, the Alienware is great for gaming, as anyone will tell you. You'd be surprised at how much you could save. Hope this helps you out!
