Help me build my next PC

Post by Sub Zippo on Sat Dec 25, 2010 11:16 pm

Its time I overhauled my PC. This oen is getting buggy and slow, and TF2 disagrees with it.

Some of my goals for my next system are:
Good HDMI out to my 58 inch TV for playing videos.
Output to 3+ screens, including the TV.
High Def Wii emulation.
TF2 and City of Heroes on max settings.

I want the centerpiece to be the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition.

Beyond that, I want at least 6 gig of ddr3 ram, a good video card, and I know I'll need a new motherboard. I'll probably need a new power supply, knowing my luck, and I'm strongly considering a small SSD for the OS. I'd like to stay below $800.

It'll have to run windows 7, so if anyone knows a good cracked version that'd help tremendously.

With the end of the year, I'm hoping for some great deals on hardware. Any help, advise and suggestions are welcome.

Zippo I'd go with the xfx gfx card over the other one for reliability and warranty purposes. As for the board I do not whatsoever recommend asus Ive heard nothing but bad things about them and ba told me his had bios updates that barely made it usable for the first year. Go with another brand gigabit, evga something else whatever suits your taste other than asus or xfx since they arrive DOA alot. The processor is also fine however take note the processor socket type is AM3 make sure the board you buy uses that socket type for the processor or they will NOT be compatible.

Cool deal looks fine don't worry about the board if it works then it is pretty much fine I just have heard more bad things about asus motherboards compared to every other manufacturer of motherboards but if it works man no reason to be unhappy about it.
