Help me with my build! :D


Apr 25, 2009
This is the first time I ever made a gaming desktop (however I have owned one before). I just want to know if it all fits and if I could get some advice on it. Keep in mind I wanted this baby to last a very very long time.

AMD Phenom II 955 black edition 3.2GHz
ASUS M4A79T deluxe mobo
Corsair Dominator 6g DDR3
Western Digital Caviar 500GB 7200RPM
Evga GTX 295
Kingwin Mach 1 1000w
Case: Antec 1200 full tower

On what resolution is gaming to take place? You dun need 6GB as it will occupy 3 DIMM slots and unlike i7 AM3 is dual channel and would u consider AM2+/DDR2? The savings are there with no performance hit hehe


Batuchka is right, the 6GB kits are for Intel builds not AMD.

You do not need a 1KW PSU, especially not that one.

In fact, you only need this Corsair 650TX:

Now, if you had your heart set on a nice modular PSU, then get the finest PSU sold in the US at this wattage:

Your hard drive should be this:
Better dollar to GB ratio. Nice fast reliable drive.

Board and CPU comes in a combo deal:

There are some cheaper RAM kits, but I trust these guys:
