Rebuilding Oasis™

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, its been a while since I've upgraded. So I was thinking of what I could do to make my PC much better. The things I want to get rid of are A) AMD 939 socket 3700+ B) DFI NF4 SLi-D mobo C) HDD D)RAM

Truly, i've never tried intel. So I've decided to switch over to it. Now, from those items I'm guessing I should be able to pull about $250-$300. I'll probably get about another $300-$400 for xmas to blow away on my new rig. So basiclly, for about $600-$700. What exactly is avalible out there *Currently* in the intel market. BTW, I will need a new water block aswell (W/C)

E6400 - $220
P5B Deluxe - $185
2x1Gb PC2-6400 - $250
TDX 775 - $53

Total: $708

That'd be ideal, IMO. Keep the hard drive, unless you want some 320GB beast ($100) or something - you'd have to get 1gb ($140, $110 cheaper) of ram then.

Those suggestions look pretty reasonable to me. OCZ has some good PC2-6400 for a few dollars cheaper after rebate, and it has very good reviews (the same stuff I have).

Which water block do you currently have? You can always just get a new back plate for it for a fraction of the cost of a new block. Personally, I'd go with an Apogee over a TDX solely for the compatibility issue. Both should provide similar cooling, but the Apogee is compatible with a wide variety of sockets right out of the box. The TDX requires a different backplate for each socket.
