Back to Intel (planned build) -- thoughts?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on putting together the following build mainly for a low power file server build.

Pentium G620/Celeron G540
P67 MSI motherboard
4GB or 8GB DDR3 RAM (not decided yet)
GTX 460 768MB (already owned)
Samsung F3 1TB (may add in an SSD for a boot drive)
Seasonic X-400 (most probably)
Windows XP (will buy another copy of Win 7 later)

I'll be adding about 20x2TB low power drives with RAID cards as well later on.

I will also be doing some gaming on it (nothing extreme, mostly medium-high settings with little AA) and using a GTX 460 768MB Cyclone that I have left from my sig rig (which was sold a few weeks ago). I'm currently using an Athlon 64 socket 754 single core just to play some L4D2 and a bunch of other not demanding games which struggles in modded servers and want to know if this will at least be a side grade or a minor upgrade from my Phenom X4 9550? I'll be happy if it is.

Any suggestions?

Attached a screenshot of what my FPS looks like now on the single core + GTS 250 I'm currently using. If I can get around 60FPS with the planned rig above, I'll be pretty happy.

Anyone??

Hmm, guess not. I'll probably start buying the parts next week I guess.
