Planned Conroe Build for Christmas

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Alright, I'm going Conroe this Christmas, just checking with you guys before I commit to what I want.

CPU: Intel Xeon 3040 (1.86 Ghz, 4MB L2 Cache) Basicly an E6300 with 4 Mbs of L2 cache
Motherboard: Undecided
(Most likely candidates: Asus P5B Deluxe, Gigabyte DQ6, Abit AW9D-Max)
RAM: 1 Gb of G.Skill HZ DDRII 800 (will upgrade to 2 gigs later)
Monitor: Dell E207WFP (I think, the lower-end 20" WS LCD)

Monitor and motherboard will most likely be gifts, CPU and RAM will be saved up for.

This shows the overclock results for it... it seems to be identical to the E6300, except it's got twice the cache.

$200. Smack dab between the E6300 ($180) and the E6400 ($220).

The 3040 is 1.86 GHz... so I assume it uses a 7x Multi, not 8... the 3050 uses 8.

About the P5B Delux, It adds a strap after 400mhz and suffers a loss of performance after 400mhz. You should choose a 975X chipset.
