My new build/upgrade

Postposted on Sun Oct 02, 2011 10:53 pm

So, I just ordered my parts, and will order my new processor when it is available:

ASUS M5A97 MOBO
Corsair DDR3 2x4GB 1600MHZ 8-8-8-24 Vengeance Series
SPI 700 Watt power supply
WD 2 TB Green storage drive
Windows 7 Home Premium

When it's available in a couple of weeks I'll order the AMD FX 8150 processor.

I'll be building with the components in my current build.

Thermaltake V4 Black edition
Asus 5830 GPU
Samsung 500GB Caviar Black HDD (system install)
WD 1TB Green (storage)

I'm upgrading from my (ancient) AMD Phenom X4 9750, M2A-VM system.

I'm getting really excited about this. With the old parts I should be able to get an old case and build up a media box, since my old MB has integrated video. In the future, I might decide to get crossfire a second 5830, since they're already coming down in price a ton over what I paid originally.
