Comprehensive Gaming PC Guide Discussion - V
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?
Case is fine btw, just noticed you didn't link one.
Thanks! It was aesthetically pleasing and happened to be black Friday so i figured why not!
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.
Ty for the info :) Either way i suppose if I'm going to take the time to build it I should invest the time in learning how to maintain it.
Sabertooth is severely overpriced. A good Z77 boards can be had for $120~$130ish.
Sound card is unnecessary.
Ultra 650W is not 80 Plus certified. Terrible power supply. Get ones that have 80 Plus Bronze certification. Also, 550W is all you need for a single GPU setup (HD 7950).
I wouldn't bother with the sound card, the Sabertooth has a perfectly suitable on-board audio.
You could even go down a step or two on the motherboard and be happy.
Another PSU might be worth considering, that one isn't certified, and I've never heard of Ultra as a brand.
Edit, and yes, that's a 6970, really, go with a new generation card, unless you have one around or something.
