swap out that mobo for this one when you look at it:
ASUS M4A77TD AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
is my first one better or is this one better? price is equal
Definitely don't skimp on the motherboard. Depending on my state of laziness fixing ****, I have either 3 or 4 computers in my basement at pretty much all times, and I typically buy as cheap as possible from pricewatch.
I have *always* regretted not spending a little bit extra for a solid motherboard, because they have pretty much everything on them these days, so it's a really big point of failure, and is also a huge pain in the ass to replace.
I've always had good luck with Asus boards though. Just don't go cheap no-name. You'll almost certainly regret it.
watching incontrols stream, didn't realize he charges a hundo an hour for coaching.
nothing against the guy, but that seems like a hell of a lot.
if you consider what he has done and idra is only 150 more...
I also wasn't sure about the power supply but I have no real education in how much power it takes to run x components. For what it's worth mine is an 850 watt iirc.
Philly: He started at $30 an hour iirc, and has just moved his price up as he's gotten more demand. I think he's completely booked for coaching through the month of april. Can't blame the guy for raising his price to meet demand.
