Quick Question about Compatibility


Aug 12, 2011
Hey all,

I'm looking to build the following combo from Newegg and am just trying to check to make sure the compatibility all looks good. It looks good from my end, but it's been a while since I've done a build. So any thoughts or suggestions would be great!

-Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

-ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

-ASUS EAH6870 DC/2DI2S/1GD5 Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

-Antec EarthWatts EA750 750W Continuous Power ATX12V version 2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

-AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX

-Kingston HyperX T1 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3T1K2/8GX

-Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Its great you are getting the 990FX motherboard because that guarantees compatibility with next generation Bulldozer processors due to be released in the next month or so

If its for gaming then the X6 processor is overkill . Buy a 955 X4 instead because games cant use the 6 cores .

The psu is overkill for a single 6870 . You could save by getting a 650 watt
