I know I am bias, but seriously, for the price, this motherboard is a beauty. It has been known to reach more that 450 FSB. However it is a little skimpy on the features (namely raid).

If you just want to overclock, get this.

As for the ram, don't get the OCZ ram for this build as it is incompatible as of now (the bios changes this). Go for some XMS2-800.

The E6300 is a good overclocker, but you need ridiculous FSBs. With the E6400 you do't. With the set-up above howveer, you'll have no problem taking it to 3Ghz.
I've been giving a ds3 the eyeball for a little bit now

If you are on somewhat of a budget, drop the ram down to the XMS2-PC5400, it will overclock to 800 easily. Then running a 1:1 ratio, the E6300 will reach 2.8Ghz.

For the video card, I reckon teh X1900XT is good, but check out the 7900GTO. THe cooler is the same as the GTX (ie. awesome ), and it'll be quieter than the XT.

eVGA has an awesome warranty as well.

as far as noise, i'm not too worried, wild woody already sounds like a wind tunnel

plus it will eventually go to h2o

You could always go OB for a while and save up for a X-Fi.


To save money you can always get a E6300.

Nice one option. Thats pretty much good. I would question getting an expensive sound card on such a budget. Put it into a nice pSU I reckon.

He could always down grade to a E6300 and have money for a x-fi



OB is a option also.

i would probably be happy with a turtle beach sound card, my hearing isn't the greatest, so i prolly wouldn't notice much difference
