Well im buying the pc before this month ends, and these are the new changes I made, I just need an input:
Gonna use it for Gaming>Internet>Office applications(word).
I have a HAF 932 case, an ATI 5850 Twin Frozr II videocard from MSI, mice,keyboard,OS.
Im buying from www.ewiz.com
, bought the 5850 from them and everything is perfect.
I have always used Intel, but im open to the AMD Phenoms II x4 and x6.
OVERCLOCKING: Yes, if the motherboard has the option, such as ASUS Turbo,MSI oc Genie or the one from Gygabyte... if the motherboard doesn't has any automatic overclocking then no.
I have an ATI 5850 Twin Frozr II videocard from MSI, and im buying a second one in 2 years, approx.
My monitor is 1920x1080 LG 32" model 32LH40
-PSU modular IF possible, crossfire ready, and silent(i had an ocz stealth x stream 700 watts, very good psu BUT at load is noisy, and even after i finished gaming the psu didnt want to idle and kept at load noise.
-My max is around $750(on cart without counting shipping...shipping to were I live is $90 but it's safe and it arrives in 3 days, I live @ Mexico and this is the best option for me).
-A heatsink fan(no V8 OR V10, they r too big)
Well the build is:
CPU+mobo combo for $329.98
Memory+Hard Drive combo $169.98
Power supply $116.99
Meaning I got an extra $100 to spare on the build.
Besides the build critique, I got a few questions:
Phenom II x4 is better than Phenom II x6 at gaming BUT Phenom II x6 is more futureproof I believe....but my main concern is something about overclock:
Says it got some type of turboboost like Intel but it says it will only turboboost 3 cores?
relationed to the above question) Isn't that bad for the few games that use 4 cores?
What happens if I do automatic overclock with the motherboard Turvo of ASUS from 2.8ghz to 3.2ghz....will the turboboost temporary increase frequency to 3.4ghz?
About the motherboard I choose...the crossfire does x8/x8 and I found it's only a 1% performance lose over x16/x16...is this true?
Will I benefit from sparing those extra $100 on the Crosshair Formula IV? If not where should I?
.-Is 750 watts overkill for 5850 crossfire in the future or is 650 watts enough(since im overclocking automaticly to 3.4ghz with motherboard) more than enough?
And thanks again
