  1. Hello guys,

    I am thinking about getting an AMD build ready for the FX series. (BTW is there any actual release date, or which month will the CPUs be released?)

    Here it goes:

    CPU: AMD FX 8150
    MB: GIGABYTE 990FXA UD3
    PSU: Corsair GS800
    GPU: MSI R6950 2GB Twin Frozr III OC'd (maybe crossfire in future)
    RAM: CORSAIR 8GB KIT DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Vengeance XMP (2x4GB)
    HDD: WDC WD10EARS-003BB1 ATA Device (current)
    DVD Drive: BENQ DVD DD DW1640 ATA Device (current)
    CPU Cooler: NOCTUA NH U9B SE2
    Case: I am not 100% sure about this component. I would like to use this Czech case the EUROCASE MiddleTower 9801 X2 Cooling because of the 5 coolers within it, and it costs 64 € without VAT.
    OS: Currently I have a Windows 7 32 bit Professional. I am thinking about getting the 64 bit version or Windows 8

    Purpose of this build: Homework, 3d modeling + animation, gaming.

    Feel free to give me any suggestions.

    Thanks in advance

    Funny. What do you mean I change my mind? I was thinking about this for a while now. So what do you think about the build? Any bottlenecks?

    By the way, I am not able to get all parts at once. Depending on when the FX series come to Slovakia I will decide what to buy when.
