My setup including monitor
The actual computer
CPU: i5 760 @ 2.8 GHz
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5870

I flip the monitor out and sit in my bed and play games :awesome: .
And I thought my cable management was bad…
Just built back in September.

Hard Drive: Western Digital 1TB
OS: Win7 Home Premium
Mobo: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
So many choosing the 965BE when the 955BE is exactly the same, just with a one lower multiplier (both are unlocked so it can easily be bumped up) and cheaper…
ATM I have an Alienware Aurora R2 with an i7 860, 6GB DDR3, 1tb HD and reference 5870, but the only reason I have it is cuz I got it new for $900 at Best Buy (they marked it down from $1600 + it was the display model so i got an additional %10 off), and I’m trying to sell it on eBay for $1500 and build my own computer.
Hopefully soon-to-be specs:
Phenom II 955BE
ASRock 870 extreme3 mobo
Raven RV02e case
4x2gb gskill ripjaws 1600 cas 9 ddr3
1tb spinpoint f3
Current monitor is an acer H233H 23" 1920x1080
I like the way AMD have recently released the 560BE to replace the 550BE…
and every review I’ve read says the extra cost gets you negligible extra performance. I bought a 550BE, so that makes me happy
Yep, AMD has a way of selling identical, slightly higher clocked chips for $10 - $20 more. I guess its good for people who don’t like overclocking, but the processors really are exactly the same, and in the case of unlocked processors all it takes is 30 seconds in the BIOS to achieve what AMD charges a little extra for.
That doesn’t change the fact that while Intel is currently holding the performance crown, AMD easily offers more performance for your dollar. Kind of how nVidia has the fastest GPUs ATM but most of ATi’s offerings are better priced.
I think recently unlocking has been made redundant in most cases. My chip can only go to a tri-core
I meant a processor with an unlocked multiplier haha, for overclocking. I don’t trust unlocking cores because more often than not they’re locked for a reason (didn’t pass quality inspection), and can lead to an unstable system if unlocked and especially if overclocked. Obviously some systems work perfectly fine with unlocked cores, but if I buy a Phenom II x3 I expect to receive a 3 core processor.
I’d generally let you’re motherboard decide on wether it’s suitable for unlocking efficiently.
but i do agree with ya.
My mobo decided for me when my 4th core kept crashing my PC
Phenom II 965 3.4GHz
6GB RAM Corsair
HD5970 1GB XFX
HD 2,5TB 7200RPM WD
My “that’ll do” rig, it’s all very average aside from boasting a nVidia EVGA GTX-470 which I have to say is very nice :3
and ignore the hair in the corner, it is very hard to take photo with a laptop attached to your camera. :retard:
intel dual core 3.4ghz (oc’d from 3.0)
6 gig ddr2 ram
blu ray drive
3.5 terrabyte hard drive space
needs updating though.
It may be messy but it works :retard: .
