I have been, but none are modular that are as cheap as the PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 500W power supply, just needing to now should I buy the PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 500W power supply(currently $70) or the SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold 500W power supply that is only $90 right now?
yes. if you are using an AMD processor, they won't take advantage of PCI-Express 3.0 anyway, so the card will automatically drop itself down to 2.0. it will do the same thing if the motherboard doesn't have 3.0, the card will just drop itself down and use 2.0 speeds to talk to the cpu.
Just built a budget build referencing your guide and Chelsi's new site. Can you please take a look and let me know how well it will run WoW? That's all I play, I'd love to play ultra and raid in 10/25m raids just wondering how this will do :)
Also, I didn't include a case because i just purchased the Fractal Design case on Black Friday:
Thanks guys. Chelsi I did already purchase the Fractal Design case :D Thanks though. I'm thinking about just ordering parts over a month or two time span, not in a huge rush I'm just making sure everything is compatible.
Not all of the ASRock Mobos support FX-6300? TBH I'm not very well rounded when it comes to any of the BIOS stuff so this could be an issue for me. Does this happen often?
It's a relatively easy process to update the BIOS, except...when the motherboard requires a working CPU to perform that update.
That's why some Motherboard manufacturers have implemented a system to allow doing it directly from USB.
Now here's the thing, ASRock can update their BIOS/UEFI by default to work, so eventually it'll no longer be an issue. It might not be one with their motherboards now.
As for other Mobos, well, they could have the same problem, or not. Hard to say.
