Re: Returning builder... please check my components. $1500 budget- Thanks
I went with the ASUS monitor PP Mguire recommended. Thanks. I too have an ASUS monitor. I currently have the MS236H 23".
I went with the unclocked 570 to avoid possible RMA issues. The 580 is such a big jump in cost.
I'll stay with 8Gb RAM and will also keep the SSD on the list. He's okay with it and I'm curious to see one run.
My brother wants to stay with AMD. The Quad core is only $10 cheaper than the Six-Core. Is the six that much over kill to be worth saving $10, or is it work the $10 since I am sill under his budget?
Will the OCZ power supply that Nukem linked work with the AMD Zambezi processor? It says it is compatible with the AMD Phenom.
Thanks for all the feedback. This is why I keep coming back to this forum.
