I want to start building my computer and need some help. I put together a build maybe 6 months ago and got a lot of positive feedback from this site but I never went through with it. My old build list is kinda outdated so I came up with this one. I wanna stay under $1k

I have a monitor and DVD burner. The only thing I don't know much about is the motherboard...will this work?

I've used that same board for a few builds for my client. Works fantastic, very solid. Everything else looks good to me just make sure you double up your memory (4sticks) to get the maximum performance out of the DDR3.

:thumbsup: I didn't know about using all memory slots - thanks!

So all the components will work together then? And does it look like a pretty good system for $900?

everything looks good to me except the video card-have had lots of issues with XFXs NVIDIA cards, dont know about the ATI ones but I personally wouldnt trust them. Typically with ATI I recomend Saphire cards. other then that that looks like a decent build. might even be with that card, Im just speaking from past personal experience with their nvidia chipsets. :thumbsup:

Oh really, well thanks for the advice. I basically went with that one b/c I have heard of them and they have a double warranty but I will check out the Saphire cards.

What about a CPU cooler....I don't really plan on OCing it so do I really need one? If I want to OC it down the road, can I buy one and install it then?

u acually have the same cpu u r planning on getting.....the stock fan and heatsink work great if u plan on not OC...but if it does get hot and u want an after market cooler i would suggest this:

it is the one i have in my pc now and it works wonders.....the fan spins sort of slow compared to the stock but it does a better job...and it was easy to install also!!

hope this helps!! :thumbsup:

The stock coolers work good and are actually really quiet. I have used (and am using) Zalman coolers for my proccessors but I rarely overclock anything.

Well thanks for all the help - I will probably start ordering parts soon! I thought I saw a very well written tutorial for building a PC on this website - can anyone link me to it? Again thanks for the advice and help :thumbsup:

The day you build, remain calm, be well rested, concentrate. Start the build with all the parts, and finish the build the same day. The wiring may be the hardest part, get it right the frist time and double check all wires for good connection. Enjoy, it's supposed to be Fun!

After doing a lot more researching I have changed my build around quite a bit so check it out - here's what I changed. I changed things mainly b/c I will crossfire two HD5770's in the furture

MoBo - GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128378

PSU - Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817371025 (this was just on sale for like $85 :thumbsup: I missed it)

RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820231303 (old was CL9, this is CL7 for $10 more)

HDD - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822152185 (One of, if not the best drive out now - faster, runs cooler, quieter) and cheaper than the other one I had picked.
