    Talking Personal Build

    Hi Guys!

    I am planning (Begging my better half) to let me buy a new mobo, CPU and Ram. Wanted to double check that everything is going to run fine with each other. Will these bad boys run alright together?

    Ram: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...=AICOGDY4JLNPG

    Mobo: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

    CPU: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

    Any help would be great.

    Yep, looks good.

    The CPU is certainly on the Supported CPU list for the motherboard, and the website says that it will support 1600MHz DDR3.

    The AMD FX-8350 is an epic piece of kit! Seriously epic! Don't let the Intel fanboys tell you otherwise. It runs ARMA3 Alpha like a dream and I can record with Bandicam at the same time and it barely breaks a sweat.

    For maximum awesomeness, be sure to get an SSD. I went for the Samsung 120GB 840 Pro and my rig boots in an instant!

    Tip: My Asus mobo had an early bios version on it and on the supported CPU list, it said the AMD FX-8350 was not supported until a later BIOS version (even though the system booted and ran) so I flashed it with the latest version and got a significant performance boost after. Be sure to check that if you go for that motherboard.

    I swear Rawns, Your rubbing that amra 3 Key in my face now lol. I hope to god i can get this setup. My GTX 550ti will love this setup plus with my 2 SSD's it will be like ZOOMMMM. I want to start streaming soon aswell. Plus, thanks for the heads up on the BIOS.

    Ill let you know when i have this setup and a Arma 3 key so i can show you how to play it :P

    << Intel Fanboy :P

    I'm running a i7-2600k with 8GB of RAM, an 80GB SSD and a GTX480 with Win8 at home at the moment.

    I'm waiting to see the shininess of the new 1150 socket chips before I consider any upgrades though!

    The only thing holding my rig back slightly now is my GPU. While still slightly better than bottom end 650's, I'd live to get my grubby hands on a 660. OPr, if I win the lottery, I'll blatantly be purchasing a Titan!
