Well this may be all for not because I haven't got the clearance with the wife yet but I wanted some feedback on a system I'm looking at building. A girl I work with happens to work at Tigerdirect here in Miami and she can get me everything at cost. I plan on parting out my old system and building the rest up with the following. 1. Biostar TFORCE TA790GXA2+ Motherboard - AMD 790GX, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Hybrid CrossFire Support, Gigabit LAN, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, RAID Link 2.Corsair Dual Channel XMS2 4096MB PC8500 DDR2 1066MHz Memory (2 x 2048MB) Link 3. AMD Phenom X4 9950 FREE ecobutton Bundle - USB Power Controller Quad Core Processor, HD995ZXAGHBOX, Black Edition, Unlocked 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Retail, Socket AM2+, Fan Link 4. Ultra MD2 5.25" 4 Port USB 2.0 and Card Reader Link 5. Ultra m998 ULT40069 Mid-Tower ATX Case - Aluminum. Clear Side, Front USB 2.0, FireWire, eSATA and Audio Ports Link My only real concerns are the fact Iv never had a Biostar Mobo before. Are they any good? Also since this is a retail CPU will it come with thermal paste? Any help/suggestions you guys can give is greatly appreciated.
