Windows 7: First Gaming PC - Need a second opinion!

19 Nov 2010   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

So many replies :) great stuff. End result is I am sticking with the M4A89TD PRO/USB3 MB, going 1600 MHz DDR3. In response to posts:
And if budget allows, the HAF X?
I'll be sticking with the HAF 932, as I only just pushed past the HAF 922, the HAF X, as sexy as it may be is a little out of my budget range.

This is the M/board I am using:

Yep that is one awesome looking motherboards, specwise and aesthetics. Unfortunatelly it is much too expensive for me right now, as I only just pushed past the M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 MB, which had int graphics and PCIe x8/x8 bandwidth, to the more expensive gamer friendly model of the M4A89TD PRO/USB3. Fortunately they have the same chipsets and perform theoredically the same in dual crossfire.

planning to buy a 2nd one to have them in RAID
yeah raid's sweet. In the far future I dream of some SSD's in RAID0 :).

you should get 8GB RAM or more...
Not too sure if that would help any way in gaming exceeding 4GB, let alone 8GB, but hey, 2 slots available for future upgrades if need be.

Thanks all:)
