How To Build A Gaming PC (Part 1)

In Part 1 I will start by prepping the case and installing motherboard, followed by installing the processor, CPU cooler, and RAM. Then install graphics card, case fans, power supply, HDD, DVD Drive, and hook up the front panel connetions. MSI 990FXA-GD65 AMD FX-6100 Gigabyte GeForce GTX550ti G.

    Depends, the original MSi 990FX Mob needed a BIOS update before you could install the FX series CPU’s, but that was over a yr. a yr. ago, so the newer ones don’t need it.

    you dont have to flash something before it will work

    sorry your message didn’t show up in my email, but yes the new GeForce GTX 600 Series that is PCI-E 3.0 is backwards compatible with any PCI-E 2.0 As it is now, there are no AMD motherboards that even have PCI-E 3.0 even the new FX Vishera chipset doesn’t but I do believe they’re implementing it in the next chipset.

    Motherboard usually goes in after you install the CPU and cooler. PSU goes in the other way around so the fan sucks in cooler air through the grill cut in the bottom of the case.

    I was able to use the FX-6100 on this motherboard straight out of the box, although I did read that some had to update BIOS first for it to work. I do believe that was with the older version though so you should be fine, unless your having problems that is. I did update the BIOS afterwards, but it did work without it. The M-Flash utility in the BIOS is a very easy to use feature. Just download the new BIOS to a flash drive (empty flash drive only) and and insert drive, restart, and enter BIOS.

    did you have to flash the bios on this motherboard to get the fx 6100 to work
