Question by Just Call Me David: How much is this computer setup worth…?
Built a computer around December, and I now realize that I really need a laptop. I had built it for gamin/video editing, but I will find a laptop that can do that. Computer works superb, here is a list of the specs.

-MSI Motherboard – 870A-G54
-Baracuda 500GB Hard Drive
-CoolMax 600W Fan
-AMD Athlon II Multi-Core processor
-NVIDIA GeForce GT430 1024MB Graphics card
-patriot Memory DDR3 2x2GB 1600MHz ( Motherboard has room for 2 more slots )
-Comes with a Wireless N150 Desktop PCI Adapter
-18″ Dell Monitor 1280×1024
-Cool Master 430 Black Elite Case with blue LED

This setup has done a lot for me, allowed me to play starcraft 2 on high settings easily, works with programs like sony vegas 10, after effects and many others easily. Also, it has a version of Windows 7 ultimate on it, the only thing is you can’t update it. The keyboard and mouse are not for sell. Have all the boxes for everything I mentioned except for the monitor.

-CoolMax 600W Fan = €40
-AMD Athlon II Multi-Core processor = X2 €45, X3 €60, X4 €85

The easiest way to tell (this is also a timesaver) is to check the system requirements of a particular game. All games vary.

Answer by Mike
i always like to help people building their own computers. i hope you have success on your first try :)

you need to pick a different power supply. that one only has one pci-e connector and the 9800 needs 2. also i would recommend you choose a 600W power supply as cutting it close on the Wattage needs is not a good idea.

9800 requires a minimum of a 450W psu and the processor requires 125W. that’s a 575W minimum on just those 2 parts the other components use minimal W so 600W should be ok but more can never hurt

a crappy psu can fry all the parts in your computer. i’v heard that story too many times.

if your planning on using only that one 2GB stick for your ram that’s fine. but if your planning on buying 2 of those you can buy dual channel sticks together for cheaper and they are faster because they are dual channel. (note- only 64-bit operating systems can use more then 3.3GB of ram)

the amount of hard drive people think they need is so often incorrect it’s funny. my parents for example think they need a 160GB hard drive when in reality they only are using 10GB.
with that said for my purposes i have a 160GB hard drive for my basic stuff like applications and games. then i have a 250GB hard drive for movies and other stuff. this way in my basic daily use my hard drive isn’t sorting through 100GB of movies to find a word document and the drive will last longer too.
you may want to take that into consideration. but just look at how many GB your using now and how many you think you will need.

besides that you need an operating system and possibly Microsoft Office for word and excel and such.

What do you think? Answer below!

Question by : Is this computer setup going to work?
I’m looking at building a new computer at a budget of under $ 1000, I have chosen all the parts and the total cost is $ 862.95. Here is the setup-

CPU – AMD Phenom II X6 Six-Core 1090T Black Edition CPU @ 3.20 GHz w/ Arctic Cooling, Freezer 13 ltd Ed
Motherboard – ASRock 880GMH-LE/USB3 AM3 M/B – AMD 880G+ SB710 Chip set
RAM – A-RAM 8GB Kit ( 2 x 4GB) DDR3 PC-10600 (1333MHz)
Vid Card – Inno3D GT520 PCI-E 2.0 1GB 64-Bit DDR3, 810MHz / 1333MHz
OS – Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Bit
Case – Gigabyte SUMO Alpha Black Mid Tower Case

I figure this is a good computer for doing what is needed plus still play all my games (Modern Warfare 2, World of Warcraft, Etc.) but I don’t know if it will all work together. Help would be appreciated please before i go out and buy all the bits, thanks guys :D
Oh and also the HDD is a 3.5″ WD Caviar Green 640GB SATA 7200rpm, 16MB Cache, 300MB/s Data Transfer Rate (WD6400AACS) (I already own this thats why I forgot to list it :S)
And also the only reason I’m using AMD is because I’m going budget and can’t afford an i5 or i7 chip (wouldn’t get i3), if I could afford the price I would get one and I would get the 550 Video Card if I could afford it

Answer by Nesquick Bunny
AMD is a toy. Go with i7 if you want a real PC.

Also, GT520 is an email checking card, I would go with 550 or higher.
