Check it out. I will be ordering in the morning and I am about to go to sleep.
Hopefully I can read some opinions in the morning that will help my decision. =]

Everything look good to go?
Any compatibility issues?
Suggestions?

In the future I will be OC'ing. As well as adding another 4890 in crossfire.
I might add a 4gb stick of ram to make it 10gb. But I am not sure yet.

Thanks in advance, you guys have been a great deal of help.

Default Re: Gaming Build Complete

small problem I see. The board you have runs dual channel ddr3 memory so getting 3x2gb makes no sense. that is what you want when running an i7 which uses triple channel ram. Either get 2x2gb or 4x2gb of ram.

You could also save some cash by getting a ddr2 board and ram as there is not a huge benifit to running ddr3 ram with the PII. but it would be nice. Your call.

Oh right.

I think i'll just keep the mobo I have right now.
Btw do you think two 4890s will fit on that mobo and still have room for me to use a PCI slot for my network adapter?

And is that power supply enough for what I am wanting to do?

I'll be running stock for maybe a month or two, no need for an extra cooling fan til later, correct?

(Havn't ordered yet, going to tonight after I get off work. Just making extra =p)

The mobo you picked comes with an on-board network adapter so you don't need to order one.

The power supply you picked will work excellent

This is all the memory you need.

The card he got is wireless so I assume he needs it as the board does not have built in wireless.

My bad, didn't notice that.

If you need a wireless adapter then I'll suggest this usb adapter. I have this model and I use it on almost every pc I end up having to fix. It works good and you won't have to worry about a slot or the card blocking the airflow to your video card or cards.

I'm going to get that usb one instead. I read mostly nice reviews. Same price as the pci one.


I am going to get this ram though.
