Rebuild compatibility

19 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I'm looking to rebuild my system and I've noticed newegg has some good deals right now on things i've been looking at.

RAM:

Video Card:

CPU:

I'm also looking at this motherboard:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813130657

My case is a micro-atx case, so I'm some what limited unless I get a new case, but I'd like to avoid that.

I was hoping to get a mobo that supports atleast that speed of ram (preferably without overclocking) and has usb 3.0 but I am having a hard time finding one.

Does anyone see any problems with this components? Anyone have any suggestions on a motherboard?

Thanks,

HC

Your first 3 links do not work. Might want to fix that.

What case do you currently have?

Edit: What PSU do you have also?

Do you have an adequate power supply for that video card?

Personally I'd recommend getting an i5. The AMD CPU's tend to be much inferior to Intel's.

And along with that, I'd recommend an Asus motherboard. MSI is more of a budget brand and not exactly the most reliable out there.

If you want budget boards, at least go for ASRock.

That MSI board is fine. I've used MSI before and they run nice. Looks like you have a decent set of components. They should all be compatible, however I would look up the MSI board on MSI's website and ensure compatibility with the memory and CPU you're planning to get. What is your main intended use for this system? If it's gaming, then an AMD FX will do just as well as an i5 or i7 + or - a few fps here or there.

You could always get that MSI motherboard and purchase a PCIe USB3 card :)

No SATA 3 on that MSI board and not a lot of good AMD Micro ATX layouts to go for.

This would be the best layout but no SATA 3.

I'm not sure why those links aren't working for some of you, so i'll just list out the pieces below.

CPU: AMD FX-8150

RAM: Corsair vengeance 2x4gb 1600

VGA: XFX radeon 7850 1gb

PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W

Case: Antec Mini P180 Black Steel

I found this mobo as well.

I didn't realize MSI was so crummy.

My budget isn't real large, so I'm trying to keep it around $400-$450, but I'm still open to suggestions.

I agree that not having SATA 3 could be a bummer. It could be bad if you wanted to upgrade to an SSD at some point in the future. I've been out of the hardware game for only a few months, but man has the micro-ATX market diminished!

@HouseCookie, that mobo you mentioned doesn't have USB3 as you requested :)

You are right, it doesn't. I like your suggestion about an additional card. I'm having a hard time finding a mobo that has usb 3.0 and supports ddr3 1600 :/

May I ask why you want the ddr1600? Would you notice any real world speed improvements? Or is it because it's in a sale?

I found a motherboard with SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3 with DDR1333 support - SATA6 is good, has USB3 but no DDR1600 support

Or your one you listed in the OP SATA 3Gb/s and USB2 with DDR1600 support - SATA3 is bad (if wanting ssd in future), has USB2 but a PCIe card can fix that, and has DDR1600 support

Or... you could get an ATX case and a new ATX motherboard :p

Yeah I was going to add that almost all RAM, at least to my knowledge, is natively 1333MHz. The 1600MHz sets are just tested and rated to run at 1600MHz, and therefore using it at that speed is overclocking. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Not to my understanding.

AMD CPU may or may not run at that ram speed they list here as Supports up to DDR3-18662 but the 2 then reads.

"1866 supported with 1 DPC (DIMM per Channel) in single memory slot motherboard designs"

http://www.amd.com/u...l-features.aspx

The modo I listed listed above does have USB 3 but not SATA 3 and this one has both if you can get it but some of the SATA ports may be blocked if the GPU card is too long.

Go with Intel, and you have quite a few choices to pick from with everything you want.

To keep it budgetary, this is a good one:
