nice idea... AM2 and AM2+ are still going strong for any kind of task :) even more with a Phenom II, and indeed a good reason to be proud of what she did.
Just going to use it to play WOW and Minecraft. Lol But I'm very proud of her for getting it all hooked up right the first time, on her first try ever building.

Italien, Spanish, French all come from the Latin. So for a native french speakers theses languages are quite easy to understand.
i know that,

yet English is the easiest for me.. i don't know why ...

from that

It's actually a Phanteks Case (If that's what you're referring to, but the cooler is a Silverstone). Here's the specs:
» CPU: AMD FX9370 8-core (4.95Ghz @ 1.512v)
» Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990FX (FSB 220Mhz, HT 2640Mhz, NB 2420Mhz)
» RAM: 8GB G-Skill Sniper (2060Mhz 9/10/9/28 @ 1.55v)
» VGA: 2 MSI TwinFrozr II 6870s Crossfire (1000Mhz Core/1100Mhz Memory)
» PSU: Corsair TX850
» HDD: 1 x Crucial M500 240GB SSD (System Drive); 2 x WD Caviar Black 1TB (Data Drive/Games Drive); 1 x WD Caviar Green 2TB (Media Drive); 1 x 500GB WD Caviar Blue (Data Drive Backup); 1 x 640GB WD External (System Drive Backup)
» Chassis: Phanteks Enthoos Series Primo Aluminum
» CPU Cooling: Silverstone Tundra TD02 Liquid Cooler w/ 4 Corsair SP120 High Static Pressure 120mm Fans in Push/Pull on NZXT Sentry Mesh Controller
» Case Cooling: 9 x Phanteks PH-F140SP 140mm Fans w/ Black Wire Grills on Chassis PWM Control

Is that a 2600xt in that pic? If it is, I had one and that was a nice little card in its day.

Edit: Nevermind, 3650...I see it.

My (non-techie) wife went through the closet and found an AM2+ board (Asus M4A79 Deluxe), Phenom II 940 BE, 4GB of Patriot DDR2 1066 Ram, MSI 4850 OC, Generic 550w PSU, CM690II Advanced, etc., and decided she was going to build her a rig, without any assistance from me. I had to help with the stock CPU Cooler mount, but otherwise, she did it all herself. I thought I would share with the old PC loving hardware guys (and girls) how proud I am of her effort to try and get into my hobby.

Generally English is pretty simple language. I'm learning it by myself, same as Japanese ;)
It was a sarcasm, refering to some native english who told me "in fact English is the hardest language in the world due to slang..."

Yep English is bloody easy and slang is pretty straightforward if you have some logic ... Swiss patoué (dialect) are way more difficult
Ie: tcheu l'botsh l'est taillé a botson en bas la dérupe! :D google translate me that ! ;)

I remember pressing that on my K6-2 system. It did not seem to do anything at that moment, so I never touched it again.

Stock clocks.. :(

Damn I missed a X6800 ES CPU on Finnish hardware forum's marketplace, I've could have it with 20 euros but I'm totally short of money atm :D
of course .... HP Compaq DC7900 non standard SFF mobo and ultra restrictive BIOS.... at last its compatible with Core 2 Quad ... and the PciE is 2.0 :roll:
i sold the previous one i salvaged for 140chf... this one i will keep it... and sell the DC7700p (need money hurk hurk hurk ;) )

but the R7 240 is nothing like at stock at last :D and hold pretty well considering the PSU being a 240W

gosh i just realized the DC7900 SFF can be upgraded till 16gb ram... (4gb atm 2x2) ok it's DDR2 but still .... the highest quad compatible is the Q9650

Still, a Q9650 with 8GB+ RAM and an R7 240, even with all at stock speed, is a pretty damn nice SFF system.

Ah, then I understand why it's stock. The mobo looks pretty weird I have to admit.

your joking right? i can even play FFXIV ARR in notebook settings with that ... (and i still have a E8500 C2D and 4gb not a Q9650 C2Q plus 8gb)

pics... waiting for my video footage to be up on my dropbox and go youtube ! ;) soon (tm)
IMG_20140509_234547_728.jpg

seems pretty fluid for a 13-14fps xD oh and 45° max gpu temp

the APU run result in my sig is a ultra 2x fxaa preset this one i ran it in medium to be fair to the "old" cpu ;)
waiting on the upload of FFXIV benchmark standard
result
IMG_20140510_244202_707.jpg
1000-1499 indeed notebook mode needed or custom

in fact the ARR benchmark is more gentle than the initial FFXIV benchmark 54° max GPU 100% load 42-52° CPU 100% load on all core
IMG_20140510_012706_020.jpg


before i upload any result here is the chart
[7000-]
Extremely High PerformanceEasily capable of running the game on the highest settings.
[5000-6999]
Very High PerformanceEasily capable of running the game. Should perform exceptionally well, even at higher resolutions.
[3500-4999]
High PerformanceEasily capable of running the game. Should perform well, even at higher resolutions.
[2500-3499]
Fairly High PerformanceCapable of running the game on default settings. Consider switching to a higher resolution depending on performance.
[2000-2499]
Standard PerformanceCapable of running the game on default settings.
[1500-1999]
Slightly Low Performance – Changes to Settings RecommendedCapable of running the game, but will experience slowdown. Adjusting settings may improve performance.
[1000-1499]
Low Performance – Changes to Settings RequiredCapable of running the game, but will experience considerable slowdown. Adjusting settings is unlikely to improve performance.
[Under1000]
Insufficient PerformanceDoes not meet specifications for running the game.

good to see a old bag still capable of a good kicking if you add a cheap entry level "modern" GPU

ahahahhahah ... i remember when my 1st 486DX33 was running doom or doom 2 and a friend accidentally pressed the turbo button ... slideshow! (i wonder why the speed was 33 in turbo on and 7 turbo off ... )
From what I understand, it's because back in the DOS days, all programs ran in real mode (aka: as fast as they can). The turbo button was a way to slow down the computer so older programs/games didn't run too fast. Programs didn't wait for a number of seconds, they waited for a number of clock cycles.
Basically, it's a compatibility mode button.

Got a full setup: MSI K4M4-L , Athlon 2400+ , 1gig memory, 2 x 80 gigs HDD (samsung+maxtor) , FX5200 agp 128megs, DVD-RW, hp cd-burner ,floppy, psu Coolmax V-400. Booting in XP but when background picture appear on desktop it goes all white after all over screen. Probably virus so i just save all files using external HDD enclosure then reboot system with xp pro.
