Asus M4A87TD EVO AMD Motherboard

This motherboard supports AMD socket AM3 multi-core processors with unique L3 cache and delivers better overclocking capabilities with less power consumption. It features dual-channel DDR3 1333 memory support and accelerates data transfer rate up to 5200MT/s via HyperTransport 3.0 based system bus. This motherboard also supports AMD CPUs in the 45nm manufacturing process. AMD 870 chipset is designed to support up to 5200MT/s HyperTransport 3.0 (HT 3.0) interface speed and PCI Express 2.0 x16 graphics. It is optimized with AMD's latest AM3 and multi-core CPUs to provide excellent system performance and overclocking capabilities. HyperTransport 3.0 support provides 2.6 times more bandwidth than HT1.0 that radically improves system efficiency for a smoother, faster computing environment. This motherboard supports DDR3 2000(O.C.) that provides faster data transfer rate and more bandwith to increase memory computing efficiency, enhancing system performance in 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications.

This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance. Experience ultra-fast data transfers at 4.8Gb/s with USB 3.0-the latest connectivity standard. Built to connect easily with next generation components and peripherals, USB 3.0 transfers data 10X faster and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 components.

4GB (2x2GB) Patriot Viper II Sector 5 Series DDR3 1600Mhz CL8 (PVV34G1600LLKB)

The Patriot Viper II 'Sector 5' series, part of the Extreme Performance (EP) line, is the ultimate performance memory solution for the Intel P55 system platform. The Viper II 'Sector 5' series are built using only the highest quality pre-sorted IC's available and are subjected to rigorous testing and validation on the P55 platform to achieve optimized performance and maximum quality. These modules are engineered to reach 1600MHz at 8-8-8-24 timings. This kit includes Futuremark's 3DMark Vantage benchmarking software for enthusiasts to fine tune their system for optimal performance.

Ok, so no graphics card, but all that lot for under £320? Not bad at all!

Probably so cheap due to the release of Sandy bridge. I have a 5850 lying about somewhere, so I'm seriously considering this for a second system.

Sorry but gotta vote cold. You can get a Sandybridge 2500K, H67 Mobo and 4GB RAM circa £300 which would blow this out of the water in terms of performance and power consumption. AND save you a tenner or so...
#2
Really? I thought the 1090t was up there with the i7's, and the new 2500k does not match the i7
banned#3
Odd to call it a 'gamer bundle' then not bundle a graphics card, lol.

Also this is hardly a deal, all of it can be bought serpatley for less then this, or the same price at most.

Mobo = £70
Processor = £150
Ram = £40

yeah i thought this looked a good deal. have avoided intel because as a non techie their systems are very difficult to research all the ins and outs.

don't dabs put this together?

no, should be obvious since there is 'no case'. It is just a selection of parts.

but scan and aria put some bundles together and overclock them...and no case included their either.

Have to agree with Reser. Can easily be purchased separately.
It's very easy to put together - plug in CPU, attach fan on top of it and put in RAM.

AMD would be faster than Sandy Bridge in multitasking due to 6 cores. It will not be faster for gaming as games do not use 6 cores. Most are limit to 2 and new ones use 4. Games work faster with higher clocked cores, than with multiple ones. Motherboard does not support Cross Fire, so this one is more of a workstation.

Would be very stupid to put it together without a case, makes it more difficult to get it into the case. Only time you would need to put it together out of the case is to test it if not working in the case.

Would not see the point of them putting it together it is very easy to slot ram and a cpu in, pretty much the easiest part of building the pc.

Prices are a little optimistic. (processor and ram)

Sorry but you're wrong. Have gander at these charts with the 1100T on them, which is faster than the 1090T in this bundle:

http://img.hexus.net/v2/cpu/intel/SB/Graphs/WP.png

Ok so the 2500k is bested in like 2 of the graphs when its a multi threaded application but it is light years ahead of this chip in everything else especially GAMING (this is called a gamers bundle after all, and power consumption, which was my initial point. AND YOU WOULD SAVE MONEY!

I think you should be saying sorry as none of the posted graphs show a 1090T processor like the one in the deal and so are irrelevant. It only shows the slower 1055t.

Oh flip. I'd actually been looking at mobo bundles that were pre assembled an tested because: the heatsink paste would have been done properly; all components were working; saves on getting a new case.

I thought it would be a simple case of screwing the mobo and attached bits into the old case. I would definately have a go at doing a build if it weren't for the cpu fitting (never done it) and the chance something is doa and i'd not be able to figure it out.

AMD processors come with the paste already on them, not sure about Intel CPU's, all you need to do is put cpu in slot and clip the heatsink on top, nothing else.

If you read my post I CLEARLY STATED THAT THEY DIDN'T INCLUDE THE LISTED PROCESSOR AND INSTEAD HAVE THE 1100T WHICH IS FASTER THAN THIS MODEL:

For normal use and gaming the 1090T does actually perform almost as well as an i7 does not matter what your graphs say, they show nothing of the use most people would use them for.

Also no one cares how long you spent posting graphs that no one asked you to post, take your vanity elsewhere.

While they are not the most rounded set of benchmarks as you have included ones such as the itunes which is optimised for Intel processors.

But I think most people on here are looking at the relevant system prices and those that want to game will probably get more real world performance from the AMD for the price as they will likely have more money to put towards a higher level GPU.

So yes Intel is king of the general PC market, but where it comes to performance per GBP, AMD is right up there.

But my whole point was that the Intel 2500K set up would be cheaper than this?!

I don't know what your definition of vanity is but I think it is gravely mistaken. Also as for "they show nothing of use most people use them for" how about the gaming benchmarks? Starcraft shows a gain of 16 FPS over the model up of this processor. How is that not relevant? That is a significant increase. I'm no intel fanboy I think the AMD hexa cores are great chips I'm just saying that people could save themselves a tenner AND get better performance for it. Isn't that what this site is all about?!
