Switching to Conroe? What should i get??

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I have a budget of around 600...I will be switching out the motherboard processor and ram..But i'm clueless as to where to start I've never worked with intel before....

Everything in my systems specs will be going into this build...I'm looking for a motherboard that supports full x16 bandwith for the GPU's. I'm also looking for two gigs of ram?

I'm really not sure of where to start here?Any help will be greatly appreciated!

you want two x16 slots right? Its gonna be hard with 600 with 2g RAM too.... unless you want something slow as hell. If you can settle for 1 x16 slot, go for the Gigabyte DS3 or S3, first 149$, second 110 or so. Both get good overclocks. and alot rides on whether or not you want to overclock, and a aftermarket HSF, do you already have one? is so, which one? answer and ill be happy to help out.

thats like 700, mabye go for the P5B Deluxe, the p965 chipsets can run crossfire now. and plus, the p5w has two pcie slots, but one is only pinned as a x4. (dosent make sense i know.) and then drop that processor down to the e6400 and then overclock.

Yeah i'm water cooled put's down great temperatures with this processor at 2.7 it stays around 38c loard....I'm looking for the full 16x because of the two cards that i have..I'd like them to be used to their full capacity! I'd definitly like to overclock but i'm not trying to hit any crazy speeds with it!

He have SLI not Crossfire

P5B Deluxe will run slower in SLI/CrossFire than the P5W DH

oh ****, sorry, yeah no boards can run the full x16 then. yeah, go for the e6400 then, the smaller L2 cache is not that much of a performance difference, and you can still overclock with that water really well.
