Hey

I'm currently in the process of buying and building a new gaming rig, and I'm not sure if it will all work together.

ASUS Radeon HD6950 DirectCU II 2GB
ASUS Crosshair V Formula Thunderbolt Motherboard
Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance DDR3
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition
Corsair GS-600 Power Supply
CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB WD1002FAEX
Windows 7 64-bit

Also any improvements would be appreciated :D

Thanks

I would change the processor to the 1090T model because it's not worth that extra amount of money for a 100mhz increase. If you can wait, AMD will be releasing Bulldozer on the October 12th which iss 50% faster then the X6.

Thanks for the help.
Is the Bulldozer compatible with the CoolerMaster V6GT CPU Cooler?

That CPU cooler is compatible with Bulldozer because it is listed in the cpu socket support list.

Sweet, also do you recommend a better power supply, as I might get a better graphics card.

I do believe the new bulldozers are designed around the am3+ socket, so any CPU cooler designed for a AM3+ socket will work just fine, especially one of that caliber.

as far as cpus I would personally, especially if your a power user, stay with the 1100t if you dont wait for the bulldozer. the 1100t comes with auto turbo features which allow an easy overclock to 3.7 mhz without you having to mess with the bios settings, which in turn allows basically, a 500 mhz auto tune up that the CPU is designed for, and you dont have to worry about messing your computer up with a messy overclock. On top of that, if your buying from newegg, their having a sale until the 12th which gives you 15 dollars off, for a price of 175-only 5 dollars more then the 1090t, so for basically anywhere between 100-500 mhz increase I would say is more then worth 5 bucks. That is of course, if you cant wait for the bulldozer.

You are purchasing a crossfire enabled motherboard (well xfire and sli) So im assuming your leaving it open for a future crossfire setup. Heres the thing to keep in mind, your current PSU is a good quality choice, and will power your current setup just fine, but if your thinking about crossfiring in the future, then you should look at a higher powered PSU, probably in the 850 watt range on up depending on how many video cards you want to add-youve got room for 3. anyway thats just my two cents.

if your looking at crossfiring two high end cards such as 6950s or 6970s I would recomend a PSU of this caliber or better. As you can see this is a coolermaster-which is a solid performing brand, 80+ certified, and modular which is a nice perk which means you only use the cables you need. It is a bit pricey, but if your wanting a performance build, then you dont want to skimp on the PSU. If your not going to use multiple cards, then the 600 watt one you have should handle anything up to the 6970, the only one i might be concerned with would be a 6990, which requires a 750 watt or higher PSU.

that power supply should be more then adequate. I build my personal computers piece by piece myself, upgrading here and there. My advice is, and it looks like your already following it-dont skimp on the PSU or the motherboard-those are the two key components of the computer.

Not all of Coolermaster's power supply range is that good like the low end Elite which aren't that great nor realible.
