I appreciate you taking the time to read this over and look over my build - it means a lot to me. Please provide any and all feedback as to how I can better my build while it not costing me a fortune.
The parts I've chosen are:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX
Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3X1K2/8GX
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
Nvidia 9800GTX+ (I already own this and I want to keep using it - I know it sucks but whatever, I'll upgrade it later on.)
Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler, free TX-2 Thermal Paste Included Inside
I'm going to be doing some gaming on it. For gaming, I'm likely just going to use PCSX2 to emulate PS2 games (gotta love those!) and from what I've heard, those depend more on the CPU than the GPU. It'll also be used for some personal use and yadda yadda yadda, I'm not going to bore you with all of it's uses!
I also intend to overclock the processor to 4.0 GHz and I've heard through many reviews and what-not that it's fairly easy to do for the 1100T, but I can't find any good tutorials on how to do it (I've never overclocked anything before).
I do intend to buy from newegg, but amazon.com seems like a viable alternative to me (for the same parts..) because I've always had excellent service with them.
If you guys could please recommend any alternatives (except the graphics card) please do so!
P.S. I don't intend to wait for the bulldozer processors, they don't spark my interests at all.
