Building new PC

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So. My parents are making me move mid high school. I'm pissed off yes, and they're upset to have to take me out. Since we're going to have a lot of extra money from selling our house they're going to give me a nice amount of money to build a new PC.

Since I have quite a lot, I'm preferably getting the highest end stuff out there. If you wish to suggest different parts (PSU, RAM, DVD-ROM/RW Dirves) Feel free.

Motherboard:

Processor:

Video Cards:

CROSSFIRE

PSU:

CASE:

Monitor:

Sound Card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102190

Speakers:

DVD-ROM/RW Dirves:

RAM:
DONT KNOW WHICH KIND, YOU HELP.

Hard Drives:
Not any specific ones, just 2x 300GB SATA 3.0GB/s and 1x 80GB IDE (all 7200RPMs)

Keyboard and Mouse:
Logitech G5, and Gaming Keyboard.

Also if you can, recommend a good water cooling kit.

Thanks.

looks good so far but i would stray away from that mobo. If you are lookin for a good mobo i would go towards the P5W DH or the P5B deluxe from asus and for ram, i would recomend the G.Skill 6400 HZ series. Also, if u want the top of the line pc, i would wait for the 8800GTX if it comes out when its supposed to. And u might want a better psu for everything. Maybe an 800 or 1000watt psu?

and that motherboard is compatable with the Core 2 Extreme and Crossfire? I did a lot of research on the mobo, and it seemed to be the best for Crossfire and the processor.

Looks like a nice PC but theres a few adjustments you should make .

One of them would be your motherboard, get a nice Asus one instead of an Intel board.

And for the PSU, get a PC P&C 750W Silencer, its one of the top best PSUs out there and will power everything flawlessly.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703006

Instead of geting a X1950XTX you should instead wait for the 8800GTX which is coming out in a couple weeks IMO, DX10 and is faster then any 2 current card in SLI or CF.

For the RAM I would recommend these G.Skill modules:

Some constructive criticism:

1) Don't buy an Intel motherboard (not to be confused with intel chipset), they have 0 overclocking options what so ever.

2) Show your parents you love them, and get an E6600, and save them $550. At stock, they both run like champs...and the E6600 overclocks great. Even on stock cooling it can EASILY surpase that X6800.

3) Coolmax makes crap PSU's (generally). Go for an OCZ, FSP, Ernemax, PC P & C, or Antec.

Thanks for the adjustments, but I actually want to stay into the Crossfire. But I will check that card out anyway. Havent heard about it.

If u really need the X6800 go for it. But i would have to agree with Fatal05, the E6600 is a really good processor and can be overclocked to the speeds of the X6800.

Ooh. Now that I check out that motherboard, it seems great. It's a great chipset for the Crossfire-ing. But to what Fatal05 said about my parents. I don't want to show them love. I'm kinda mad at them for this whole ordeal, I havent lived where I live now for 5 years yet, and already.

Well considering that they are your sole care provider, and keep you alive you should be great full. If they are moving for job opportunities, then thats what has to be done.

The highest end processors are generally looked down upon here, unless you are 1) Brain damaged or 2) Filthy rich, and money is NO object. Overclocking was intended for making lower end products run just as fast if not faster than the higher ones, while saving oodles of money.
