New quickie build
Broken (ancient) computer that needs to be replaced. Needed for upcoming school (heavy photoshop and video editing).

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H
X6 1055t

OCZ StealthXStream 2 Ultra-Quiet 600W Power Supply
Mushkin Blackline 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz CL7 DIMM (996652)

Those are all the parts I need at the moment, I'm going to be pricing / cruising the forums at the same time for other related posts, I just wanted to throw this up quick to grab opinions / known issues or anything (more the latter then the former :P)

thank in advance guys!

edit - I messed up the psu part

why not the 870? kick arse unit, check sky's review
ram wise whatever is cheaper. hell you can find use 1055's as well.

LarkStarr July 12, 2010 09:49 AM

I can't find an 870 locally for some reason (I dont want to ship anything) and the integrated video card is a fantastic backup - the less downtime this system has for any reason, the better. it's also $5 off.

I'll look around here for a used 1055 but I kinda want to get this running ASAP. like today.

Thanks Dan!

$60 MIR + 26 off and CL7? I'd rather hit the new stuff with the warranty. (8 gb, ironically because 32 bit windows is in use.. XD)
