I took a look at the Overclockers online review of that PSU, and it seems pretty good. One steal of a deal.

I still stand behind the x38 with a 3870X2. I think that crossfire X will prevail in the upgrading situation because you could add another 3870 if you needed more power.
plus a little more room if you wanted 8 gigs of ram, as it has been proven that the Nivida chipsets are weary of having all ram slots full.

With the cpu, you could always get a 6750 and get it to 4Ghz with a little less worry, as the steppings on the 8400 seem to get worse and more sensitive to volts.
But the 8400 is still a good choice.

No need for the 790I, much less an Nvidia chipset if you're not going to go SLI. Get an x38 chipset.

Get some good G.Skill DDR2 ram, 1066Mhz would be good.

No need for a raptor, get 2 500Gb 7002.11 Segate drives and RAID 0 them. Much more space, and slightly faster.

Good choice on the CPU.

Nice case, but get a good PSU, Any PC P&C or FSP will be good, about 750Watts to do it.

Add a sound card like the Asus xonar and you're set.


Also, do you have your own monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers?

What about after market cooling? I suggest a Turniq tower 120 with some AS5

I'm not going for a quad in a year, much less 60% of everyone that visits OCN.

I wouldn't make such a big statement without proof.

If he is going for gaming, then a faster dual core will beat a slower quad core. Not every game is quad core optimized.

Excuse me? You're lack of grammar and understanding of the modern language makes that hard to read.

What in that PC is crap? I would really like to know. Or are you some AOL moron that thinks that the newest stuff is the best?

And what in my PC is crap? I would like to know as well.

I don't know whats going on with OCN, but It's a bunch of nublets that think that the most expensive is the best...
