AMD (Budget Build)

Thermaltake Armor Build

Alright so it's been quite awhile and I finally got done shopping for my new build, got it put together and got her going. I had a Hard Time finding a case that I liked as most all of them have some awesome features but look like hell too. I ended up settling with the Thermaltake ArmorPlus(Armor+) VH6000BWS Full Tower Case. In my opinion it looks like a beast and the thing is huge. Lots of space for pretty much anything I want to throw inside it and it will be around to throw new builds in for years to come. Now Before I go into some specs let me start off by saying this is a budget build. I don't have a ton of money to throw around so I went with an AMD build. And I have to say I see no difference between my AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition and my buddy's Intel Core i7-2600K. Anyway I'm most definitely happy with my new build. Here are some specs below!

-Thermaltake Armor+ VH6000BWS Full Tower Case
-AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban o/c to 3.7GHz
-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
-Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 (upgrading soon)
-Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
-Thermaltake CLP0554 80mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
-XFX Black Edition 750W Modular PSU
-2x LOGISYS 12" Dual Cold Cathode Blue LED


If you can't see the difference between any AMD processor, and an i7-2600k, then you're obviously not doing anything CPU intensive.

And the GPU?
Anyways, I'm glad you like it. I did read something about AMD hardware being outperformed by the likes of Intel or Nvidia as of late, though.

I'm gonna do a new build soon :)

I don't think the screen is big enough.

What kind of budget were you on? How much did that entire setup cost?

Woow, This is incredible, I must do this on my pc.

I need to start on my budget build.

Wow, I want something like.

yes, yes. I most make my pc like yours

SO. Ho big is you ram stick?

very interesting material man, supported! (:

I like the 1090T, but the 2600k is awesome (I'm not intel fan)

I might use your idea, it seems really nice.
