I am contemplating about a new future build for my computer. This build doesn't have the complete component list since I have the parts already.
Background: I was going to upgrade my GPU from Ge-force 430 to the new 550Ti GFX GPU (with Dual DVI) and get a hard drive 1TB or greater second hard drive that was basically it. I have been receiving Windows 7 performance issues "Your computer can performance better if you revert down to Windows 7 Basic" I ask around about the new Geforce GTX 550ti and was going to buy it because people say that it will fit in my motherboard but I email EVGA and they said to wait until I make change to my dual screen system so I had a fun time on new egg and basically I went from a 137.00+ tax+ shipping for my GPU to 250 dollars increase of making sure that the GPU unit was compilable. I am sort of going away from WOW(don't tell my guild that) but I want to play Flight Sim at high or ultra setting and other new games so basically my build is this:
Current Specs are: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/ndcxuzSQEHKcujVXk1IXTz0
I am looking at:
Case: HAF 922 with default fans
Current: Corsair TX650 PSU
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131754 ASUS M5A99X EVO
RAM:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231311 x2 (deciding on that) G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849 AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition (comment: I wasn't able to find the extact model number on the CPU compatible list but this is a BE Does the mother board support this if is in Black Edition I am not trying to over clock it
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625 Geforce GTX 550ti Optional Buy at later date)
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136891 Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARX 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive (Optional Buy at later date)
The question is do I need a Aftermarket CPU cooler or can I just use the stock cooler
CPU Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065
I am going to buy the listed above at tiger direct and amazon.com (prime member). Will this last for another 4 years or DDR4 and CPUs that are 8 cores
What do you think about this build any suggestions are appreciated. Hopefully I will be buying this at the end of the year or in parts and assumable it when i receive the full parts list.
Have a great day
